Of course as the one dude mentioned, it baseball bat for a neck (which is oddly easy to play) so .... my brain is like jellow after years of trying to figure that out.
That's surprising to hear. Still, the two best sounding Telecasters I've played both have baseball bats for necks and I've always assumed that was part of why they sounded so great. One of them is a Warmoth fatback with the compound radius fretboard so I know what you mean about a fat neck with a flat fretboard, it's an odd and strangely cool combination. The other one, a mid-50's Fender, also has a baseball bat for a fretboard (super round) and was very difficult for me to play.
