Les Paul Forum Co-Owner
- Aug 2, 2001
Coincidentally, I do own a '64 SG Custom.
I can't say I recall putting my hands on a '60-'62 SG neck, but the neck on mine is much slimmer than an R9, and slimmer than my R0. It's been awhile since I've touched an original '50s LP Std, but the ones I recall were full and round, whereas my SG is a shallow 'C'.
Now you are comparing reissues to originals. Most reissue Les Pauls have neck shapes totally unlike any normal 50s Les Pauls.
And many people make the common mistake that the "thin 1960" neck shape is thin in width. It isn't. It is thin in depth.
Like I say, most people do not understand the neck shape and how it changed in mid/late 1960.
Come by my shop [call ahead] and I'll show you. Or come to Dallas or Arlington. :salude
