Traditional 2012 - 59 neck?

Hello, I would like to buy Gibson Les Paul Traditional 2012. I playes the one from 2010 and impressed me very much.
The problem is that i tried to played Les Paul Studio Faded worn brown with 50s neck and my thumb was little sored, on 60s Studio it was OK. Maybe matter of time usage? On Traditional it was off course OK.
The fact is that I played the Traditional in very short time. On some sites its written Traditional have 59 neck, and it could be some between 50s and 60s fat. So my question is: does really LP Traditional 2012 have 59 neck?

Thanks.

Yes the Traditional has 50s neck, but the Traditional Pro has 60s neck. There may also be some Traditionals with 60s neck - these will be clearly denoted in the product name. For example the Sam Ash "Traditional 1960 Satin" model.

Keep in mind that from an Historic perspective, during the production year the 59s has 3 different neck caves. V1 - 1959 = largest, V2 - Medium, V3 - Thinnest.

this may help

And what about Traditional 2012 Ebony with Chrome hardware? Its written that have late 50s neck, so it can probably be 50s or 59?
