Ive read a lot about the whole CV line having skinny necks. When I received my vb Tele it didn't seem skinny at all compared to my old cv 60's strat. In fact it feels pretty full, and I have somewhat large hands. Well I just did a string change, and grabbed a caliper from work so I could measure it. It's.85 at the first fret and.90 at the 12th. Now I dont really know the norm, but I just thought I'd post it.
