  • What's the thinnest Gibson SG neck?

    I like the idea of a thin-necked SG. Combined with the upper fret access would make it a great lead guitar. Would also help somewhat with the weight balance issue.



    I've got 2 Epi G400s and they both have a pretty chunky neck. In fact one of them is almost uncomfortably fat and that has major balance issues.

    In the Gibson line, you want the '61 reissue.

      I had an Epi G-400 Custom.....the neck was fat and the guitar was way too neck heavy. Then, I traded it in for a Gibson SG Standard, and what a difference! The neck is thinner and the guitar is perfectly balanced.

        Yeah, it seems to me like SGs should have thin fast necks. It would solve the balance issue and it just suits the style of the guitar IMO.

                Try the new 2013 SG Standards. They have reverted to the small pickguard and the slim taper neck:

                        that's always been my way of thinking but most SG's i've played have had necks that felt thicker than the bodies. I kind of relate that style of guitar with the Ibanez S models, just thin from top to bottom.
