I am getting a neck built can you guys tell me the best radius should i Go for the thinnest neck available or get something big
#2
Honestly, the neck that feels best to you, you will be able to shred the best on it. Most people like Ibanez type wizard necks though
Gear:
Shecter Omen 6 with Seymour Duncan SH-6
Epiphone Les Paul Standard
Fender Frontman 25r (crappy)
MXR CAE WAH
Digitech HardWire TL-2 Metal Distortion (Makes the amp sound not shitty)

I built my own guitar, and it has the same radius and neck carve as a classical guitar, huge neck, really flat and wide fretboard, but I love it for metal and shredding, which is most of what I do. So really, whatever you like most, or are used to, will be best, the neck makes no difference to the sound.
Gear:
Fender Hot Rod Deville 2x12
Custom Built Guitar (made it myself)
PRS SE Soapbar II Maple
Fender Stratacoustic (Stolen! )

Roland Microcube
I like my stuff!

This is like asking what shoes are best for you. Sure I love my size nine (U.S.) but if you have size thirteen you won't.

If you don't already know the answer you have no business going custom.

dont tell that ;(


Why not? It's the truth, judging by your OP you're not even sure what the radius of the neck actually is either.

Unless you're damn certain of the specs you want, dropping the kind of money that custom jobs take is a massive risk since you're not sure and you may get something that's terrible for you.

That's another crucial point: this is for you. Any guitarist worth their salt will tell you that there is no "shred" neck profile or anything like that, there's just what works for you as a player and what doesn't work for you.

Go for a wide thin C shape with a 12 inch radius. Pretty stock standard tbh.
I would also advise getting jumbo stainless steel frets, and if you want extra bells and whistles, then get it scalloped also.

This is an awesome analogy.

this thread is going nowhere. we cant possibly know what u like. go to a guitar store, pick up variouse different guitars and find the one that has the most comfortable neck. done!

The only real answer to the SG vs Les Paul debate is to get a Flying V and laugh at all the suckers who don't have one.

The thinnest neck I've played was Alex Bois' Ibanez LACS RGD. Absolutely insane how thin it was, and I like thin Ibanez necks.

However, I think the best feeling neck I've played in the MusicMan John Petrucci signature guitar's neck (the non-gloss ones).

I ordered a neck based on ibanez wizard II :P
and i too agree with the shoe thingy
thanks anyways
