Hi,


I just ordered my gibson les paul standard in ebony with a 60s neck and the black top hat knobs with metal insert and they installed them on sweetwater.So I just have to wait for it to arrive.Im really happy this is my first les paul.
I bought the 60s neck because I have small hands.Did I make the right choice?
Just corious what you think.

Don't know about the neck, but you sure are a lucky basard. How much did you drop on it?

yeah i have a 60s neck. it's definitely good for small hands. but i've read that people with bigger hands find it annoying.

well yeah I mean the 60's neck is thinner since you have small hands.



Congratulations. I hope you enjoy the purchase!

The agent at sweetwater droped the price to 2000 and the shipping to Puerto Rico is 70 bucks plus 13.45 for the knobs.

You should have played it in person before you bought it, schoolboy error.

Yeh, I gotta agree with R_H_C_P (you know that rhymes!). The shape of the neck is a personal thing so you should have tried it in a shop before you ordered, but Im jealous you're getting a Les Paul.

Mine's got a 60's neck and I love it, you made a good choice with that. But like the other's said, you MUST try the guitar in person before buying, I'd only use an online store to buy accessories or to gather info on what I'm gonna look for when I get to the store.

I have huge hands, and I prefer slim necks greatly. And what about Steve Vai or Paul Gilbert? Their signature models have famously skinny necks.
#18
I like it!!! (except the ordered)
I hope you enjoy your new sweetheart!
#19
You'll enjoy it. Good luck and congrats. I buy guitars all the time off ebay without playing them and have never been let down by a Gibson yet.
Fender...different story.

nice i love my gibby as well. but i have the 50's neck. i like a nice fat neck

The 60's neck is great for small hands, but no problem for bigger hands like mine. I love it.

And congrats with the guitar! It's great.

Congratulations dude! I would have gone wioth a 50' neck, but i have giant hands

I don't understand why every guitarist in the States doesn't some kind of nice Gibson... they are really cheap compared to their pricetag in Denmark... now THAT sucks...
How much soes it cost in Denmark? Some beat to hell 72 Gibson Les Paul Goldtop is going for almost $2000. A stupid beat up studio is going for $800 over here in a guitar store. On ebay i'm buying a new wine red one and it comes with a hard case. It's $750 with shipping. Congrats on the Les Paul!
