Smallest 6-string necks

  1. Alright. I'm thinking about buying a six string. I was just wondering if anyone knew offhand about some guitars with noticably small 6-string necks?
  2. For me, Ibanez Soundgear necks are quite small. But for you that might be different. I haven't tried too many other 6 stringers.

    Are we talking "guitars" as in "Fender Strat" or 6-string basses - it's not entirely clear from this post?

    I would have said : "some basses with noticably..."

    If we are talking about basses I thinnk you want to be careful - I have tried some 6-strings where the neck was so narrow that I couldn't get my fingers in between the strings - impossible to play! What was better for me was a wider, but flatter neck.
