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.

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.
