What would you compare the Kiesel neck shape/carve to?

Would I compare it to a summer's day? It is more lovely, and more temperate. :)

EDIT: no this one's better: I compare it to a kiss from a rose on the grey. Ooh, the more I'm playing it, the better it feels, yeah.

They have not changed the standard neck shape since the Carvin days, if that's what you're asking.

I have limited exposure but here's how I compare the profile of my 3 electric guitars. In no particular order.

1. Carvin DC400CW - thinnest of the 3, narrower fretboard. Very fast. 12" radius. i can feel the laminate edges in back. This is probably due to not paying attention to humidity during the winter in DFW. It's not bothersome at all - great neck.

2. 1995 Washburn N4. i believe it's a 14" radius. Also a very fast neck. Not quite as thin as the Carvin, and slightly wider.

3. 2017 Music Man Axis - the smoothest feeling neck by a long shot, although it's also a lot newer. The radius i believe is 10". It definitely is the thickest of the necks. The guitar itself is a rock machine, but some things are more difficult to play. For example, the 14/12/14 >16>14>14>16/14 slide from Cliffs of Dover is much more difficult on the MM due to the curved radius.

All 3 are great. I prefer the upper fret access to the MM and N4 compared to the tight squeeze of the Carvin, but the thickness of the Carvin for my hands is awesome.
