I was getting my strat worked on it has one of the thinner fender profile necks on it I really like it. Another guy came in this is a really small repair shop and I was packing up to leave he asked if that's one of those thin profile fender necks? I said it sure is I really like it. Well, he then proceeds to tell me that he only buys strats with the really deep big necks because the tone is so much better. I asked what he meant by better he said deeper more sustain ect ect, I've owned a number of strats I mostly look for the smaller necks but I've had a couple of the larger necks and I've never noticed that much difference in the tone based on the depth. There are all kinds of variables that come into play here on this subject but I've just never had anyone make that statement to me about a strat neck. Has anyone here had that conversation about a strat neck? As it turns out he lives close to that shop and I asked him if he would bring his over and show us and he said he would so I'm going down and check it out I did mention stock PUPS and he said his were so I'm curious.
