 We’ll also replace the finish on the back to help preserve the wood and keep it smooth and beautiful.
 Neck tone is an issue that no empirical evidence has ever put to rest. However, comfort  does affect your playing ability and technique which is what matters most in finding and maintaining your tone. Start with finding a neck that makes playing a joy and enhances your technique in a way that allows you to play your best, then: Find the best amp that suits your ear for the tone you like. However other factors to consider are pickups, effects, speaker enclosures, volume, venue, room size, string gauge, etc.
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-not the wood.
On an electric guitar  tones are affected by everything from the pickups and amplification to pedals, pickups to speaker enclosures.

Guitar Neck Shave

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.
