Anyone know of any companies that make a good replica ? OR anyone want to sell me one? thanks
Those letter designations don't refer to the neck profile, they refer to the neck width. An A neck is just a 1.5 inch width nut and a B is 1 5/8. Pretty common these days. Most Jazz necks are 1.5 inches, so nearly any Jazz neck you find will meet your requirements. Profile designations are more descriptive, C, V, and U (or in some circles D). The C is basically a thinner U, the U is sometimes referred to as a baseball bat, and the V is V shaped. There are two different versions of the V, a 'hard' V and a 'soft' V, one is more pronounced than the other. The most appropriate profile for you depends largely on how you hold your neck. For instance, if you keep your thumb on the back of the neck, a V wouldn't be very comfortable for you. With the lighter body woods that are used now, anything other than a C is liable to produce some neck dive.
I think the designations get confused because both use the letter C (and sometimes D) as one of the designations. The nuts sizes would have been better served by referring to them as 4, 5, 6, and 7.
