    Does anyone own a Suhr with the classic 60's standard neck profile? Just wanted to get some feedback on it.

    Thanks!

    I have a 60's Vintage C Slim....... I think it is now called the Classic 60s Standard now.

    What would you like to know?? It is my fave guitar!!

    Pretty much a mainstream neck profile, confortable yet fast, and with a nice taper.
    Unless you like huge necks or only can play on Ibanez "glued-fingerboards" it's hard to go wrong with that neck profile!

    Thanks, I've tried the Suhr C Slim profile, and was curious as to how much fatter the 60's C profile compares. I don't like huge neck profiles, I'm more of a Fender American Standard kind of player.

    I have one on my Classic. I was wanting a larger neck but my GAS took over when I saw mine at Indoor Storm with the Standard neck.

    I'm glad I did it too. Now that I have it, I know for a fact that it's the neck I would order again and again and I have large hands.

    It's a great neck for me.

    I don't think you could go too wrong... it is a bit bigger but very comfy.

    I liked mine on my first Suhr so much....

    The 60's C Vintage Standard (previously called 60's C Vintage Slim or 60's Vintage Taper) is probably what you want, or perhaps the Even C. The 60's C Vintage Medium is just a little chunkier and would probably feel comfortable to you, but you would likely spend some more time adjusting to it. Honestly, they are all very comfortable yet different. You may want to buy a few used ones to try various neck shapes. That way you can unload the ones you don't like without a huge loss. Just beware... my guess is that you'll end up keeping them all. :)

    My favorite Suhr neck profile (that I've played) is the Big V 10/56. (But then I like Soft V necks)
