Is that a 50's or 60's neck? Gibson Les Paul Traditional 2011


Recommended Posts

I've been all over Youtube trying to figure out the neck on the Slash models (the Gibson page says both custom carve and 50s vintage, and some reviewers say the Epi Slash necks are identical to the Gibson Slash necks, while some say, oh no they aren't), so it's a topic dear to me... 

From the looks of the pics, 50s neck. From Google, it would appear to be a 50s neck.

Yes its certainly not a slim neck... The Trads and Classics are cheaper options than the Standard.. One of the main things that set them apart was the classic has a slim neck and the Trads had 50s necks...  However you get medium and super fat 50s necks....  Not sure which the trad has... I would say a medium 50s... Hard to tell from the pics really, also each guitar is slightly different as the necks are hand finished... Which is why its always best to try it if you can before you buy one.
