So my guitar is a cort x2 wich has a really thin neck and I find it very comfortable, compared to other guitars I tried. Anyway, the question is, if you like thinner necks too and if yes, what brands or models would you recommend for an upgrade?

Ibanez are renowned for thin necks. Gibson are not. Most (not all) super strats will be on the thinner side.

Depends. Do you want thin and curved or thin and flat?

Primarily i'd say Ibanez, they are known for their really thin necks, Deluxe fenders also have thinner necks, pre 95 PRS guitars also and Vigier have totally flat necks haha.
Some ESP guitars also have quite thin necks and Jacksons too.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

As for as mass produced guitars go, Ibanez pretty much has the market cornered on thin flat necks.

If you did want curved, look at the ESP M guitars. The Xtra Thin U profile they have starts like a typical Ibanez D profile, but curve into a U shape where the Ibanezes taper off into the flat D.


I don't feel those letters are very good representations of what the profiles look like.

EDIT: I'd place Jackson between Ibanez and ESP M, closer to the ESP.

as others have said, ibanez is known for thin, fast necks. depending on year and model they are slightly different in terms of shape.i would def recommend going and trying several, there are some differences btwn them. for example no idea why but i am a huge fan of the original wizard necks but don't find the super wizard to be as comfortable. personal preference

Depending on the model, Carvin has extremely comfortable necks. I'm thinking that the headless Holdsworth might be a thicker neck, but the superstrats are very nice.

Agile has a "slim" neck option that's available on some of their guitars; this has a depth of about 17mm at the nut tapering to around 21mm at the 12th fret. Those numbers are very close to the Ibanez Wizard type necks, except that the Ibanez have a longer scale over which the taper takes place.

Parkers have a generally slim neck, too.

I think the Music Man JP6 have the most easy to play neck ever.... a mixture between Ibanez and fender

Some of the Godins have slender necks- the Velocity, the Redline series.

Reverend guitars use what they call a "medium oval" which I find to be quite comfy.

The thin-u neck on an LTD is pretty thing.

Myself, I prefer a nice, soft v neck. The thin-u is nice, but the v-shape fits perfectly with how my hand is curved.

Schecter’s SLS Blackjack line (so far only produced in 2013) have thin necks.

I never really thought to look it up but did wonder why the neck on my LTD M-302 was so much thinner than the neck on my Viper 400. I didn't know an Xtra thin U existed. It's almost as thin but not quite as flat as my Ibanez Prestige with a Wizard neck. The M-302 is a bad ass guitar, I don't know why they stopped making it.
