    Hey All --

    Need some ballpark neck profile measurements for a '61 SG/LP. Don't have any calipers to measure myself, and can't seem to find anything reliable on-line. Just looking for ballpark numbers. Thanks!

    1961

    .792" 1st fret
    .872" 12th fret

    Its a pencil-neck, although its still thicker than the three 1990s Les Paul Classics that I once owned
