Once I played a 60's Standard, I found my calling to that neck profile. All my guitars now are in and around a Slim Taper C neck profile. I had to try the Classic at GC a couple times before I purchased the Gibson Exclusive Olive Drab from the online Gibson store. The largest neck profile I play now is my Joe B. Lazarus 59 Standard, which is a Medium C towards the slimmer side. I like the workout I get on Lazarus, which is just a great guitar overall for playing and tone with the SD Slash Pickups. Wow!Totally agree! I have a few guitars and the necks are all over the place, but I enjoy them all. In my 55+ years of gigging necks have never been an issue with me, I play what ever is in my hands at the time!
Everyone should make their guitar their own. I did not have to change the Classic much, except the tuners, since I just don't like kidney tuners and love locking tuners.
I adjusted the pickup height on the Classic that has the BB 61's and I really like the tone I am getting from it. All my LP's are different in one way or another from each other with all kinds of different pickup configurations. So much fun, this hobby we all enjoy so much.
The only guitar I left alone, was the 2017 Les Paul Studio HP, even with the E-Tune. I figure it might be worth something someday along with the Boat Ancor Heavy as Hell Aluminum Case.
