It's all personal preference, I for one like both the beefy neck on my Schecter, as well as the thin and also wide neck on my Ibanez.

To me, though, almost any guitar I pick up I can deal with the neck size/thickness/width. It honestly doesn't affect my playing at all.. For some odd reason. It's not like I have large hands, either, they are quite small and can just barely completely wrap around my Schecter's neck, but I still find it very comfortable.

Am I weird?

If it was me I'd get myself a nice, thin Ibanez-style neck, but as brandon said, it's all about what you, yourself, like.

The Ibanez neck shape at Warmoth is the "Wizard". You need to go to a shop and try all of the neck styles and sizes. That's alot of money to spend and get something you don't like. I personally like a thicker neck for playing lead and a thinner neck for rhythm. I don't know why but I just do. Consider the compound radius neck from Warmoth, I have two of them and love them. One is a standard thin and the other is a Clapton

If you can't decide and not sure what type neck you like, then measure your hand from heel to finger tips. CALL Warmoth and speak to one of the guys. They are very helpful. Tell them the size of your hands and what style you play most of. They can at least narrow your choices down.

No love for a V-profile?
