Thanks man. Yeah its strange that all of a sudden I've had 3 vintage SG's come up in less than 4 months that were priced right. That roll is ending with this one though... We haven't even broke through January and I've spent my alotmemt for the year. I was going to buy a Phaez SIBLY amp and was just waiting on sound clips but thats going to have to wait now.
This neck is not bad, but it's definitely going to take some time to get used to it. It's obviously pretty narrow compared to the 1 11/16 but it also has a pretty aggressive taper in front to back thickness from the bottom up to the nut. Much diifferent then the 67 Special I have thats also 1 9/16. With time I will get used to it though, its worth it as she's a beauty.
Now I gott a come up with a name for her
I have heard from others that as you get into the later 60's, the depth of the neck gets chunkier thus making the narrow nut a little more comfortable. My 65 fits very nicely in my hands and to me very comfortable, but I have small hands. Again, IMHO I think the narrow nut is blown out of proportion and is not as big of deal as some say.
