A strange departure from the Wizard neck...
So I'm as surprised to be writing this as you probably are to be reading this. Of late, I've found myself purchasing guitars that I never thought I'd be playing. A good friend of mine uses the Gibson Custon '59 reissues as his main guitars. I've played them and the necks on these are like grabbing the fat end of a baseball bat. Never thought I could play one, especially after so many years playing the Wizard neck--thing was, it's COMFORTABLE.
So... I went looking for a '59. Ended up actually buying a '58 first, which has an even thicker neck than the '59. Now I have a '59 and two '58's and I find myself grabbing for them as go-to-guitars as much as my trusted RG770, 760, and 550 guitars with the Wizard necks (let alone the JEM guitars).
Am I going crazy? Have I lost my mind? Has anyone else had this experience?
