Re: NGD Gibson sg 61 reissue
I've read that some of the older Standards had the same or a very similar neck. The Standards that I played that wasn't the case. They weren't "unplayable" big, but they were completely different from the 61 RI. The neck front to back is thinner, and I could be wrong, but E-E feels wider. The other big difference is the neck joint. It joins the body at the 19th fret (if memory serves) on the Standard and the 21st fret on the 61 RI. If you look at Callens picture you can see it.
