My Dad has an old Fender Newporter that he bought when he was a teenager. It's a small body acoustic with stratocaster/tele style neck. I grew up playing this guitar and always loved it. I've been wanting to buy one for myself but have had a hard time locating one.
So, what are some other types of acoustics with electric necks? The only thing I've managed to come up with is the Fender Redondo. But those seem to be even rarer (and apparently not as good as the newporter was, although information concerning both seems to be scarce.)

The only guitars I know of with electric style necks are Fender Sonorans, but they're not very good guitars.

The next closest thing is an Ovation, but those don't sound good at all IMO

Yes the only thin neck i would steer well away from is the Stratacoustic i have one & they are a piece of crap. Mind you they sound fine "plugged in" but the name sort of tells you it was designed to be an accoustic wrong I bought it 2 > 3 years ago , hated it so gave it to my daughter as she loved the look of it. [They certainly look great] however im into what they sound like.

yeah i have one of those stratacoustics ^. Its a good beginners guitar, very easy to play, but it sounds a bit thin and hollow with no resonance or sustain. I think there are better guitars out there for that sort of money e.g yamaha

yes the Yamaha's i would agree with but i think the most important thing, isnt the thickness or nut width, it is the fretboard radius, as this is the bit that my barre-ing finger needs to fit nicely agasinst to keep clean chords
