As a Strat fan, I am not sure how I feel about compound radius necks. They seem logical and a reasonable solution to the issues some face with 7.25″ radius neck etc. I’ve really centered on 7.25″ necks as the ones I like the most but I do have a 9.5″ American Special that I built and it’s nice.
In the end, I tend to like the 65 reissue necks as my custom shop strat has one and that had me building a new strat with that neck. A mid-sixties fat C.
I haven’t met anyone with a compound radius neck but these new strats really do look like they’ve taken all the best bits and put it on one guitar. Very keen to play one and find out.
