Silverburst Posted October 14, 2009 Report Share Posted October 14, 2009 Hi, I've been wandering trough forums for quite a while now, and I just can't get a grip on neck specifications of Les Paul Custom. I'm new here, so this is my very first post ;) What I found out so far: -All Les pauls seems to have a nut with of 1.11/16 -From thin to fat: 60's (R0) - 59's (R9) - 58's (R8) - 57's (R7)... -Generally 60's are reffered to as "Slim taper", 50's as "Baseball bats". But then: 80's neck seem to be on the thinner side and have more shoulder, like a "D-shape". I find really little info on 80's necks. What I'm looking for: I'm used to Ibanez RG Wizard necks, so what I need is a thin slender neck that has some shoulders and a wide fretboard (1.11/16 should be fine). I don't like thick fat necks, neither thin necks with a "C-shape" profile that don't have enough shoulder where the shape curve dives to quickly of you see what I mean. I'm looking for a Les Paul Custom Silverburst. Originally they were built between 78-85 something like that. Apparently there were reissues during the last 6 years or so, but when I look at the specs of these reissues, if anything about the neck is mentioned at all, they say is has a rounded 50's neck. Preferable I should try instruments first hand, but that is less likely to happen with a silverburst where I live, so 95% that I will have to get one shipped in. Thanks.
