The Squier 51 is a fine neck, for whatever reason Fender / Squire got this one right… it is clearly a chunkier profile and all the ones I’ve measured are 42 mm at the nut, it’s just a great little neck.

Fender uses ash, alder, and occasionally mahogany. Currently Squier usually uses Agathis (a.k.a poor man’s mohogany), occasionally alder and pine.
