Bump.
I'm looking at one next week, and trying to educate myself first.

I've seen some described w/ 50's neck, others w/ 60s profile. Did the same guitar really come with two neck options?

A list of specs would be really helpful. And appreciated by this noob.

05 Standards came with 50's OR 60's "Slim Taper" necks. BurstBucker Pros (both neck & bridge).

thank you very much!!

One follow up: is the "AA" or "AAA" rating for the top purely subjective it somehow designated for each guitar?

That's two.

It's purely subjective. It has to do with the amount of figuring in the wood grain, but it's - purely subjective.

At "A" or higher, you won't see any knots. That's about all you can really count on.

There's something about a black Standard! Oh, and would the use of a Line6 pedalboard be the equivalent of using Richlite on a fingerboard? Just kidding...these Line6 units are awesome!

Ok - before anyone flames me - I just figured out how to search the forum, and found a couple threads on the AA vs AAA issue.

As a noob, I'm just very nervous about buying something without knowing ALL the facts. This forum is great for my education.

Funny you said that, I put the HD500 Line 6 back in the box yesterday! It is a cool "toy" and if I wasn't so lazy I could probably get a lot out of it. However, very happy with my modded DSL100 with a NS-2 and TS-8 in front of it!! Simple=better for most of us.

2002 on the left, 2005 on the right. Identical specs except 2005 has after market '59 pickups. DH is right on with the specs.
