    Cool looks like a dot. But how does it have a 59 neck shape?

    I don't know but it's not the 60's slim. What else could it be? Don't know much about the neck choices on these except I have a Les Paul with the fat 50's carve and had some with 60's slim and this is neither. What else is there? :huh

    It could be a "fat neck" dot or just a thicker neck than most 60s necks . I have one that is beefier than most 60s necks , but it doesn't come close to my 50s Traditional.

    Yup, that's a looker there! Exactly the kind of finish I'd be after if I was getting a Gibby 335.

    ETA...I just noticed the orientation of the pole pieces on the pickups. Kinda weird, all my double HB guitars are reversed of those.

    It's not a fat neck dot. Likely is a beefier 60s. My 335 dot has a "60s" neck that's as thick as my 50's neck LP traditional. Congrats on the guitar. Looks beautiful.

    I know. Been waiting to switch them back but interested to see if I can hear the difference... what do you guys think about how they've been turned? Most people say very little if any difference in tone...:huh

    It would be interesting to see if there is a difference after you turned them. I kinda doubt it really makes a difference, but who knows?

    Yeh not a fat neck as they have klusons. I have a dot with a fatter than typical 60's neck. One of the reasons I bought it. That's a beauty
