    Does anyone know if the neck shape is more "C" than "D" or the other way round.
    I have small hands and want a very "C" shape neck for comfort. Was wondering on the signature models if I can have a "shallow C shape" if that makes any sense.
    I'd love to hear thoughts and ideas on this and does Roscoe accommodate these type of requests.

    BTW, am I on the right track as far as neck shape is concerned for somebody with small hands wanting a comfortable neck??

    I'd bet they'd be willing to accommodate. I have big hands & asked for a D shape. I definitely think a C shape would be a good choice for smaller hands. A Roscoe C shape neck is fantastic & probably what I'd say is their "standard".

    The standard Roscoe neck is a thin C shape. It's not quite as thin as a Soundgear but, very comfortable.

    And they have a 'slim profile' option also.

    I have small hands/short fingers. The neck on my Roscoe is the most comfortable neck of any 5 string I've ever played. It's a C shaped standard profile.

    Hope this helps.
