Agreed! I looked high and low for a Les Paul with a thinner neck that I could tolerate. I was mainly a strat guy only because I couldn't find a Les Paul with a thin and playable neck. All my strats are gone now that I found "the one". The GIbson Les Paul Traditional Pro (GC, MF and Music 123 only). It plays like a dream! Head and shoulders easier to play (for me) than any other LP with the 50's rounded neck. Here's a pic!My LP Traditional Pro has a great 60's neck.
