hey, there are two (major) versions of the gibson les paul standard, the one with the 60s neck and the one with the 50's neck.... what are the differences between these two necks? what are each's pros and cons? and do you think both guitars are identical besides the actual neck?

thank in advance

here are the links to the two different types:

The 50's neck has a thicker nut radius.

one of the pros/cons would be the actual feel (and that is probably a matter of opinion and/or hand size), maybe even the sustian too.

50's- Big, thick, sometimes called baseball bat necks.
Pros- Comfort
Cons- Might feel slower or awkward if you've got small hands

60's- Not as thick as the 50's(as in more shallow) but its still pretty thick compared to other brands. They don't feel as round as the 50's necks.
Pros- Might seem a little faster
Cons- Hand cramps maybe

I like 50's necks more but you've got to try both to see for yourself.
