ive been looking into getting a new guitar soon as of right now i have a strat and i was at the music shop playing this jackson and i noticed how different the neck felt it was more flat than others ive played, does having this kinda neck give any kinda advantage over playing, ive heard that you can play smoother but i dont know.

Custom Strat
Mesa Boogie Stiletto Ace
Fulltone OCD
Electro Harmonix Small Clone Chorus
Dunlop Crybaby Classic

Better for faster playing.

Ibanez is the way to go if your looking for a flatneck.

alright im goin with the s470 then cheap and look like its a great value anyone know if the pickups are any good?
#20
just because a neck is thinner doesnt necessarily mean it will be faster for you. if you like thing necks and think they feel good then go with one, but if you prefer the feel of a thicker neck then go with the thicker one. it wont impede your playing at all
Go get your shovel.

Peavey necks, as on guitars like the Tracer, are an awesome slim shape too. Really well sculpted.

Flat fretboard radius makes it easier to bend. Guitars with rounder radii have more of a chance of "bottoming out." It's also easier to make a guitar with a flatter radius low action.
