What year/model has the thickest neck?

I know that statistically most of the JEMs have the same stats for the necks, with either the JEM neck or the Wizard neck, but in practical experience, what guitars have you lot found to have the thickest necks?

Enquiring mods want to know

Thanks in advance guys

Hey Jono,

How's it going? In my practical experience it's the all maple neck models LNG, DY, and PMC (didn't ever hold an SK).

The neck on my BFP definately is thicker than the VWH and DBK necks. Can't speak to the others though.

Definitely the earlier non-wizard 777 and 77 necks for the most part. This enough for speed but still had substance. I thought they were finished much better then, also. They had more of a D-shape to them IMO and those were my favorite necks.
