hey guys,
i am looking for a lefty les paul, like a LS250, or a burny, or greco of equal quality. but the neck i want isn't the large 50s type, instead i want a 60s type feel. i can go for $1500 to $2000. is there anything like that?
thanks guys,
tommy

I think all the high end Tokai LoveRocks ( ie LS150, 230 , 320, ) all have the Gibson 50's rounded neck ?

My LS160S is somewhere in between the Gibson 50s and 60s neck. It's a very comfy rounded D neck. It's a fair deal thinner than the 50s neck but not as squarish as the 60s profile on some Gibsons I have played. I'd say it's just right ...

I measured some of my guitars few days ago in non scientific method. These measurements are comparable inside this session. I measured the thickness of the neck next to first fret and also next to 12th fret.

Tokai LS85 25/30
Tokai LS85 #2 25/30
Tokai LC80S 25/30
Fender Tele 52RI MEX 23/28
Gibson LP Standard 59's 2006 20/30
Fender Strato Classic Player 50's 23/28
