These were vintage correct 3 deg.
you didn't even mention OG 59's in the original post.No, I wasn't you misunderstood me.
One ... more ... time.
the OG 59's were 3.
so there's a nod to the 3.8 and 4.Are there any MIJs that have the correct neck angle among the 59 replicas
For example I love my HLS 240 and HLS155 but they have 3.8 degrees iirc
My understanding is the Gibson True Historic has 4????
I'm referring to vintage or newer stuff, just interested if there are such models out there??
screw you too.These were vintage correct 3 deg.
I have no idea what you're talking about, what part about 3 degrees not being right don't you understand, it can't be if you've got a vintage thick cap, my flat top set neck tele I've made has probably close to 2 degrees.Sorry, but I don't buy this.
I simply am asking WHY 3.8 and not 3?
and it seems some people are acting like this is some kind of offensive or ridiculous question and I don't buy that.
it's a simple question and I don't understand it, thus I seek an answer.
Are you inferring it's somehow super expensive and hard to make it 3 degrees because I need to get a private guitar commssioned to get it?
And I disagree you can't get an inexpensive good replica.
My HLS 240 cost me under a grand shipped and it's AWESOME
it's just 3.8 instead of 3 and I don't know WHY since it's raison d'etre is to be a REPLICA of a guitar with 3.
Frankly, I might PREFER 3.8 to 3.
i won't know until I try a 3 to compare
I noticed the same thing. Historics tended to have lower bridges and neck angles (which I prefer) A trad and Rosso Corsa I owned had slightly steeper neck angles. It wasn't unplayable by any means just noticeable. If I didn't own a historic I probably would be none the wiser and perfectly happy.From my measurements of a few Gibson Historics that have gone through my hands, they varied from 3.7 - 4.2.
I haven't had a chance to measure a True Historic. But since they are all handmade, there could be very slight variations.
In general though, I do notice that the Gibson Historic LP's have lower sitting bridges comparing the the USA line.
