    Sting Ray guitar neck compared to an Albert Lee?

    Hey everyone,
    Can someone tell me (or compare) the profiles of a Sting Ray neck vs. an Albert Lee? Models to try are in short supply locally so all I have to try right now is the SR. I would love to know how it compares to an Albert neck.

    Thank you!
    I'm more of a cake man myself.

    The Stingray neck feels noticeably chunkier to me.

    I'd agree with that. The AL neck is very comfy. Not to fat not too small. I did feel the Stingray was a little fatter, but nice as well. If you like the Stingray you will love the AL

    can I add on here

    I played an Axis SS yesterday and a L3 BFR and a Cutlass, none of those necks where to my liking as compared to my JP6. I love my JP6.

    How would a an Albert Lee neck compare to the JP6 in regards to thinness, I realize it has a different radius. I just like the feel of the neck of the JP6, I can fly on it rather very comfortably

    Thanks Rich

    An Albert Lee neck is going to much closer to that of an Axis than a JP6.

    Haven't played a JP6, but the AL is a bit thicker/rounder than an Axis/ASS.
