Guitar neck thickness should be chosen for what best fits your hands, not the “tone” it has. That should be the major consideration in the choice of your new neck. The timbre of a fat neck is noticeable. However, most of the tone comes from your playing technique-
On an electric guitar tones are affected by everything from the pickups and amplification to pedals, pickups to speaker enclosures.
In a live situation “wood tones” in an electric guitar will become even less noticeable. Let’s say everything is equal and the guitar is perfectly in tune and intoned. The overall sound of your guitar may be noticeably affected by a fatter/ thicker neck but generally only when you are playing without the guitar plugged in to an amp. So…remember high gain electric guitar tone is very much dependent on a players technique and comfort with his instrument and not the thickness of a neck.
