haha awesome ! Thanks for the info ! Ill keep an eye out for a 2016/ 2017 TraditionalOP - I have two 2016 Les Paul Traditional T guitars. They have what I believe is described as the " '59 Roundback " profile (.828 @ 1st fret and .973 @ 12th fret), in between the fatter '50s neck and the 60s Slim Taper. A very comfortable proflle...not too fat and not thin. I can play them for hours without hand fatigue. Both guitars have a consistent/uniform neck profile. Here's the link to Gibson's website for this guitar: http://legacy.gibson.com/Products/Electric-Guitars/2016/USA/Les-Paul-Traditional.aspx
They'll have to pry these guitars from my cold, dead hands...LOL!!! Good luck in your search...
Hey man , Thats it ! I think i need to save my pennies for an R8 ,a lot of the ones online say C neck , or Medium 50’s “C” ( because most of the 50’s are alittle too thick for me ) Thanks for the input !Your first post in 10 years?
My first thought would be an R8 or R9...those are rather consistent for the past 27 plus years.... everything else is in constant change over the years.
There are no PCBs in the 2016 Traditional T....just regular potentiometers and capacitors. Which has nothing to do with the neck profile the OP is asking about.OP - A bit of eye-candy for your inspiration... My sweet 16's - 2016 Trad T Honeyburst and Lightburst.
The '16s have the PCB/pots in the control cavity. If I recall correctly, the 2017 returned to the traditional pot/cap set-up. I've had no problem with the PCB controls or the stock Classic '57/''57 Plus pups. If I ever mod it, I'll switch over to the traditional pot/cap set-up as it is more "traditional" .
R7s and R8s are the thickest necks of all so avoid those if a 50s neck is too fat for you.Hey man , Thats it ! I think i need to save my pennies for an R8 ,a lot of the ones online say C neck , or Medium 50’s “C” ( because most of the 50’s are alittle too thick for me ) Thanks for the input !
