I have an '07 Standard Faded with a 50s neck and a Traditional with a 50s neck. The Traditional definitely feels a bit bigger and I prefer it.

I would like to get another LP that is not chambered and has a neck like the Traditional....another Traditional is an option, but I was wondering if any older Standards would fit the description. Might be a bit more cost effective.

I seem to recall reading that somewhere in the early 2000s Gibson went to the 50s or 60s profile option and before that when the Standard had one neck profile they were the 50s style like the Traditional has. Is that right and if so what year did it switch?

I have a 2003 Standard with a 50's neck that feels identical to the one on my 2008 Traditional. I just wonder if it's all down to the luck of the draw in terms of neck thickness due to the hand-finishing.
