I was researching some G&L ASAT Classics and came across a list of different necks you can get with them.

whats the difference between C, U, and V necks?

Well, a C neck is shaped like a C
A U neck is like a U
and V is shaped somewhat like a V

They are describing the shape of the back of the neck.

C necks are mostly round. D necks have a more flat surface than a C, for your thumb. A V neck is sort of the opposite of a D in it's difference from a C. Clapton prefers V necks, just for some useless information...

...obviously...but what does the shape refer to? is it the shape of the back of the neck? the way it fits into your hand?

Thanks, that explains it well enough for me. I get it now.

In case you wanted to see a general shape of the necks then here is a pic that sums it up quite nicely
