whoops
could you show how thin it is
they always look very very thin to me and i'm used to les pauls and my sg so
if its as thin as an sg it should be quite comfortable

It looks amazing, but the brightness of a new maple on maple neck is a tad too bright for me, I like the look of either an aged one with an amber tint or a new one with a painted keadstock ya-know?
Still lookin' great! Treat her right.
