The Nocaster I've got coming has a monster D profile. I'd love to find that in a Strat but I guess they have to cater for majority tastes.
Fender American Vintage '56 Strat might fit the bill. Specs online say "V" but it's not, it's big and it's chunky. Vintage size frets but I did a re-fret for a client who asked for something slightly bigger on his one.
Would that be rosewood though? Not sure what year they started doing them?
Good point. No, Maple.

If you want a chunky neck on a vintage-spec reissue the American Vintage '65 Strats have that (with a rosewood board). The AV '59 reissues have a more D-shape profile but aren't as chunky as the '65s.

What I'd really like to get my hands on is a rosewood Ancho Poblano. Those things had massive necks that just about used the whole blank.

That red strat of mine is a 56 so you have played that neck ( very subtle v up near nut ).
Rosewood boards exclusively from 60 but introduced somewhere in 59..

Hey Molly I found the spec sheet on the Suhr:
- Nickel frets (jumbo) not stainless
- Clay dots (side and face)
- Neck shape is even C medium .840-.920
- Body is roasted alder

Hope that helps to see if its even in the right ball park for you. PM me your email address and I can send some photos - I thought I had it, but can't find it in my gmail.

Will do.

Bought Grant's Korina Strat tonight so I might be covered but I'm still interested.
