umm, yea, uh, sorry, I got no words right now
I LOVE it! I love soft V necks and Gibson historics, so I was going for the soft V shape, but something as big as a historic. The 56 Big V is a sharper V I think as I originally ordered that one but then switched to the soft V.Originally posted by PlexiBreath
Thanks for showing the specs. The Suhr I'm ordering also has the 56 Big V contour, only mine will have 7"-9.5" radius. How do you like the neck shape?
Thanks Ken. She weighs about 7 and 3/4 lbs. The neck is probably one of the biggest I've ever owned, comparable to some of my bigger historics - but it plays very well. It fits my hand perfectly. I find bigger necks easier to play on, and the big ss frets make bending so very smooth.Originally posted by KLB
Nice axe, Lou. What does it weigh?
That neck is big, but not THAT big. The V contour and 1.65" nut make it fit the hand surprisingly well, right Lou? I have a Morgaine Mintage '57 with a very similar size/shape neck. It is easy to play, and this from someone who found the earlier Jeff Beck Strat necks too large (due to the U shape).
