Does anybody know how the neck thickness runs on the supreme like 59,58 57,and maybe 56, I know thats pushing it to far. The ones I have tried seem to be around more the 59 size.Are the really fat (57,56) necks out there or is it just a dream.

I'd say its more late 50s rounded or 60s. They feel significantly smaller than a 59-RI neck, at least mine does..

I had a supreme and it would be comparable to Pre 2002 Usa standards necks or like samuel said ..Late 50s rounded. it probably would have measured around .830 at the 1st fret and was c shaped. Definately smaller than any historic R9,8,7,6 maby similar to an R0

My old supreme had a pretty hefty neck on it. I really liked the feel, and I really like the feel of my r7. They are a bit different, but similer enough. If you like 50s necks, you may love the supremes neck. And that ebony feels as good as it looks.

I had a Supreme and the neck was on the thin side.

I must have had a friday neck. Not only was it pretty fat, but it was set crooked, which is why I don't own it any longer. I will say, that is was a sad day when that thing went back to the store.
