And for me a thin neck is one main reason I am interested, given I have fairly small hands and probably why I like my Taylor ce 810 over say the old Martin V shaped neck. My PRS Ce 24 which has what PRS calls the "Pattern Thin" neck is super nice for me as well.
Hey Kev, I've always used the term 'shredder thin' neck to represent the thickness of the neck. Like you said, usually these necks have at least a 12" radius (usually 14"-16"), and sometimes a compound radius.

Guessing that Kiesel is using the term "shredder thin" rather than simpler "shredder" because of the 10" radius and that they're only referring to the thickness of the neck.

Ok so it must be a electric players generic term. Kiesel simply lists it as "thinner neck profile" and it also states The "Rapid Play" low action neck . But I had not seen or heard the term Shredder Thin, was why I asked
