    Wow, that thing is nice! That’s the color I want too. Demos online of the 50s sound great.

    How’s the neck? It’s supposed to be thicker than the 60s. I have small hands, but for reference I don’t have any trouble with my D-18. Barre chords require some effort higher up the neck. And I’ve never been able to go thumb over on standard Fenders.

    I have no issues with it. It may just be smaller than what you have already.

    I measured it for grins. The with is the same as the 60s and it is .100” thicker.
    I find it feels different but no big deal.

    Well, looks like I’m going the Les Paul route. Never fooled with one, but all my research makes me want one. Dig the look, dig the sound, and it looks like the Epi LP 50s is a quality instrument. Now I just have to wait for them to come back in stock.

    Pics once I get it, of course!
