I realy like my current Strat but i have a problem i cant get my thumb up on the fret board : ( (makes it hard to play The Red Hot Chili Peppers stuff cuz John Frusciante is the ****in man and i have trouble playing thier stuff)
i saw a few guitars at my local music store that had a much less broader fret board
i was wondering if anyone who plays with thier thumb could tell me if a smaller neck would help
and give me any other tips that i should know thanks

Often stuff that you use your thumb for can also be barred with fingers...maybe try doing that instead?

Explain at the moment, how you're trying to do the thumb-on-the-fretboard thing...

What you should do, is let it feel comfortable to you, get in a position where you can do it and if feels alright.

And if you can't stretch that far....it's just too bad.
