The neck is certainly a little slimmer than your traditional R 9. I've played a lot of the Ace 59' s and the neck is very consistent in that it tends to be a bit slimmer for a 59.
I'll post some non dealer pics in a bit.
I waited for a long time until I found what I thought was the perfect 59. I looked at a lot of these for the past few years until I got the one with the right top, color , feel and tone. It's a keeper.
I just joined the forum because I have interest in this guitar. Are you located in the US and will you ship to Canada? I can provide all references, information, etc if we can settle on the details.
