My 11/2004 4003's neck is thicker, and I suppose more round than flat/wide, but I find it very comfortable and easy to grip/play. It makes for an easy time - I wish I'd gotten one 34 years ago!

I have larger, meatier hands (not a piano player hand nor one comfortable on a narrow neck guitar). It makes for an easy time - I wish I'd gotten one 34 years ago!

The neck profile has not changed since late 1995/early 1996 which was roughly when this design went to CNC. The differences due to sanding and finish are minimal.

great, i remember once the lead guitarist in the band almost took up bass playing after playing my ric, he liked the neck that well (good thing for me he didn't). thanks Mr. Hall for the reply.
