Will do tonight or tomorrow. From my best memory it felt like my old SG Standard which had a thinner neck relative to other Gibsons. You might not want the thin neck anyway, might encourage you to hate all your other guitars. Some people dont like the thin necks anyway and they do take some getting used to. I think it feels great.

Whatever it is, I'll get used to it!

I HAVE been thinking of shaving my LP's neck down a little to accommodate my baby hands, though. Dunno how deep the truss rod is in there, though.

Thick neck:

Thin neck, notice how the neck isn't flat to the surface, so it isn't quite as high as it appears.

Cool:

codetocontra, thanks for the pics. I think it'll be perfect.

odontophobia, so jealous. H@EGC said I'm scheduled to ship the week of the 20th... but even then, I'll be waiting for my buddy to cut my body (basically a copy of the Fano ML6). And then finishing, so I may not have it complete for a month or two! I'll have to throw it on a tele body in the meantime....

Yeah. I still have to find time to eat it out on now. Easier said than done when dividing time between partner, baby, band activities.

I posted a quick photo set on Instagram but can find a link to the last photo which shows the guitar in all its glory.

Here it is in all it's glory.

I could stand to adjust the neck a bit to even the distance between the end of the fretboard on both the high e and low e side but i'm overall happy with how it plays and, as i'm considering a mastery bridge, don't want to fuck with anything right now.
