What is a Black Benny? Have I seen it? Can you please re-check the middle measurement?

Oh all right, 120 for the #6 position.
I googled Black Benny and Bernadetto's popped up. For a moment I thought you had one of these:

I suppose describing neck profiles through referencing a single measurement (well, 3 actually) is as fraught as describing pickups through only their DC resistance. There are so many more variables...

However, your feedback has been valuable to me as it gives me an anchor point for future necks that I will be making. Happy to add some more necks to the spreadsheet.

It is good to know that by far the biggest neck (Tri-cone) in this table, is still described as comfy, so I think my Duovette neck will be fine (for some)...

The other interesting thing that came out of this, was that some of you were surprised how your neck measurements compared to your perception of that particular neck profile. So thanks for your feedback.

Yep I think height and width of frets go a long way as well. Let me know if you want more measurements, I'll borrow the wifes sewing tape measure and I'll throw some stats your way

Perhaps a couple of what you think are your slimmest and biggest necks? But use paper as the sewing tape is kind of stretchy, at least ours is.

I'll get onto it, slimmest neck is a JS100 I believe, fattest neck would be my tricone, but you already have that. And its only comfortable to play slide on and not comfortable for anything else past about the 9th fret. Unless you have slowy sized hands (freak)

Ok, I'll play.

This was a very surprising exercise for me, and certainly fingerboard width should be taken into account, as my Jag (which I always perceived as being medium) and my Nocaster (chunky) ended up with very similar results.

Johnny Marr Jaguar: 11.1, 12.0, 13.1 - C - Medium
Nocaster: 11.1, 12.2, 12.9 - C - Chunky
Rickenbacker 330: 11.0, 11.7, 12.3 - Flat U - Medium
Greco LP: 11.1, 12.1, 13.1 - Soft V - Chunky

Without considering other variables, and somewhat disregarding the outlier of the 6th and 12th fret on the Ricky (who plays all the way up there anyhow?), it seems I have a "type". Curious.

Cool, i'll put yours in the spreadsheet too. I am interested in Oleg's chunky neck measurements.... Oleg, you there?
