    60's Standard 61 pickups?

    That was my main gripe withe the 61T, thin and shrill. Ended up replacing them with my preferred 496/500 set. I prefer the enhanced mids and booming lows.

    Exact width of a 50s Gibson Les Paul neck?

    Yes side to side Gibson necks are typically 1.67" to 1.70". The depth though can range from 0,79" - 0.92+". The fatness means front to back only. Now the exception to the rule is my 2015 Les Paul Special which came stock with the new 'soloist fretboard' with a width of 1.77" but a shallow...

    What's your Les Paul neck preference?

    Maybe because the 60's slim taper has more meat on the shoulders where the Wizard necks are close to being flat?? My 2013 LPJ Pro has a similar profile to the Trads. 0.9 - 1.0. Actually my SG Classic has the same measurements. My Standard 60's is probably the thinnest one I own at .82 - .91...

    What's your Les Paul neck preference?

    I'm in the back and forth camp myself. I'll go through a 50's profile phase and then a 60's slim phase for awhile. I play and love both. Hell I could probably be satisfied with a Wizard neck profile and be fine.

    What's your Les Paul neck preference?

    Any really. I'm honestly not even sure which I prefer. From my slim taper Standard 60's to the rounded 50's profile of my chunky SG Classic.... I go through phases where sometimes I prefer thin, and sometimes I prefer thick. Now rarely do I ever want to play a neck that's Wizard thin though...

    2021 Fretboards

    Took me about 3 applications of lemon oil to get my fretboard up to par. Bone dry was an understatement!

    Just Bought a "Demo" off Gibsons Demo Shop

    That's pretty cool man I was eyeballing this one. The amazing part is how different the finish looks with the different hardware on it. I have a bourbon burst and would've never guess this was also one. The hardware just makes it look so different.

    Is this an neck joint issue ?

    LOL You and me both! I play it, and if it plays and sounds good, that's it. For fun I recently started looking for small imperfections with a magnifying glass and realized, I'm lucky I don't put too much stock this letting stuff bother me. because with all my guitars I was able to find things...

    Les paul modifications

    Me personally, I never purchase the guitar for the sound itself. Because when I get it home and run it through my rig, it never sounds the same anyway. So i purchase based on feel/build quality alone. Besides, I usually swap my pickups out anyway for their 496R/500T's. I just prefer them.
