Round?...or Rounded? HB standard vs vintage necks


Recommended Posts

Does anyone know what the difference is?

The new Gibson Hummingbird, with the red Vintage Cherry Sunburst...found in the sweetwater link below states that it has a.... "ROUND" neck shape. It gives no other detail. Considering how many different Gibson necks there are, and the frequency with which they change the names, I am wondering what this means. Does round mean thick and round..or thin and round?  I am not a fan of thick necks and need to know before I buy one. Can any one give a more accurate description of a new "round" neck than the Gibson specs in Sweetwater gives? Swetwater link below> Thanks for your help!

And so we have the new standard hummingbird with a "ROUND" neck

And the new Vintage model Hummingbird describing its neck as " ROUNDED"  !!!  I am left scratching my head saying...WTF! lol!
