Which one? Damn’d if I can decide.
Will talk to guy selling the 04 and see if he will come down. The 99 is in a shop, they have reduced from £1995 to £1675, I was thinking 1500 for that one. In terms of looks the, 2004 wins hands down. But I am swayed to the 99 due to historical elements.Pricey. I sold a mint 2019 50s Standard for £1350 earlier this year.
Out of the two you mention and if you can't demo them.both I would buy the one in the best condition. If they're both the same then I'd buy the one that looks best.
I bought a guitar with a V2 neck as I loved the slim neck on my les paul DC, and they are great, when I play them I feel like I can reach everything I need too, now here's the rub, I have two guitars with club like necks, now after a session playing them, the thinner necks feel really weird, like cheap somehow, I know that sounds bizarre but it's the best way I can describe it. So necks? I have no idea any more, lol. I think, that I favour the standard, looking at the '99, seller claims non weight relieved, opinion on here disagrees with that so seller might be one of those types that say things to sell, not based in facts.Whatever you do,choose the one that feels and sounds right.I think,today,i'd be more inclined to the 60's neck shape,but you never know with gibson.It depends on who was shaving the neck at the time.If it is as billed,the classic would have more currency with me,all other things being equal, just because of the slimmer ,less chunky neck.ymmv.
