This is not any kind of a vs. thread. I'm just curious to know what makes the necks different, which you prefer, and why. I'm buying a Les Paul and don't know which neck to go for. Thanks.
The 50's is a bit thicker in shape and the 60's is a bit thinner and flatter. I personally prefer the 60's.
I have the 50's neck on my guitar and I really like it a lot.
I'd say if you have pretty big hands like me, a 50's might be more comfortable.
But if you have small/medium hands, the 60's necks might be better.

50's = thicker
60's = thinner than 50's but not Jackson thin by any means
