    Beautiful guitar! I have an AK 1974 Custom, but at this moment it is the less playable guitar in my home. Because of it's neck, it is very FAT. When I was buying it I was thinking that I will love it and I am trying very hard, but at this moment neck still not comfortable for me.

    DO some research, you can make it a bit thinner with no consequences. Some of us did that with fat neck basses. Between 12ve and 24th fret there are the reinforcements, but you have a couple milimetres to work there that can make a huge difference.

    Thank you for your advice. I am afraid I am not ready to do that, because guitar has a black gloss finish and I believe in is not possible to paint the neck only after making it thinner, I will have to repaint all guitar what will cost me a fortune. I will try harder)

    Have you tried making the strap a little shorter? I find playing fat neck basses gets easier on my left hand when hanging them a couple of centimeters higher...
