Wow. Beautiful looking guitar! That be some tasty ebony.

Me, I can't get used to the baseball bat necks, though. But that's just me.

Well, I usually have '60's neck profiles (or very similar), as well. BUT,
I do have a Gibson "Lucille' that has quite a "beefy" neck, so this one feels
very similar to that. So, I don't really have a problem, with the girth!
And, of course, the more I play it, the more familiar it feels. [biggrin]

Nice looking guitar. I ordered an Epi Flying V from sweetwater with the 50's neck. Looking forward to a nice meaty guitar to pound on.

Just changed the stock strings (10-46) to my preferred D'Addario 125's (9-46),
and that was the final "icing"...it's WAY playable, now! Odd, that the neck
doesn't feel nearly as "fat" now. LOL Funny, how the little things, can make
such a difference, huh? [biggrin]

Cheers,

CB
