I tried a few of them. The neck feels no different than the general 50s Standard neck. I'd scope out Sweetwater or Zzounds so you can see the specific guitars, as the amount of flame can vary regardless of being labeled AAA. I don't know if you're looking for a Slashy sound. I hate the pickups in the Slash line. Too abrasive for me.
I got my Greeny Standard from Zzounds. Got the top and weight I wanted.

I’ve seen som pretty bad flame tops on these even though it says AAA 😅.
Every store here just use stock pictures so I just won’t take the gamble.

With Zzounds and Sweetwater you see the exact guitar you are considering.
