    Am looking to purchase my first non-hollowbody type Grestch and was wondering if anyone had any recommendations to which models have a slim neck (0.79" at 1st fret and 0.87" at 12 fret being an ideal neck for me) and allow for good access up to the 22nd fret?

    Thanks in Advance!

    Most Gretsch's got thin necks. Get a double cut Jet or a Corvette.

    Doublecut 6128-1962 Duo Jets could be a good place to start.

    Yeah honestly ime most Proline Gretsch guitars have rather thin necks. Almost too thin for me honestly. I wish they offered a larger profile for those of us who like that.

    I consider the necks on my country clubs thin compared to the necks on third generation hot rods..... But then I’m not a little dude with mutant hands and little sausage fingers.
    I like a full C or DD.....
