What's the difference? I've seen pictures of both and the thin-u shape just looks like a d-shaped neck to me.
#2
A thin U is still going to maintain a relatively uniform roundness across the back of the neck. A D-shape gets flatter towards the middle.

EDIT: That's wrong. I was thinking of thin C not thin U.

U shape has taller shoulders and is relatively flat.


D shape is like a C with the hump toned down a bit. D and U can be pretty close depending on how thick the neck is.

D and U are very similar. Sometimes they feel almost exactly the same depending on the guitar.

The back on U necks is generally a bit flatter than a D, while a D is more of a happy medium between a C and a U.

I also feel like it's not a regulated thing. One luthier's U will be another's D will be another's flat C.

What's Charvel's/Jackson Dinky's neck profile actually? I just checked and found that my good old Epi G400's neck ("slim D") is a bit flatter in the middle, but when playing I hardly notice a difference.

The neck on my RR is probably something like a really slim "C" bordering on a D.

My MIJ DK2M is a D shape. The back of the neck does have a flat spot.

But I have a feeling we're moving into "doesn't matter in the slightest" territory here, no?

Did you seriously ask that question just so you could post that?

No, I'm really trying to understand. I was wondering about the D, flat D, U, slim U etc. stuff before, but I fail to understand it, and what difference it makes.

It would be great if any of them showed a "thin U" shape, and ideally, compared it with a D shape
#18
they are just letters really. there are general similarities and differences, it really just depends on the manufacturer.
