Amen to that!! smile.gif Welcome to the Insane Ibby Thin Neck Club!! smile.gif

Glad you are digging it. I really do love the way the ibby necks feel smile.gif I still have other guitars, 2 deans, 2 hamers, a strictly 7, etc. and each has their place. But the ibbys are special smile.gif All three of them!! Four if I include the 5 string bass smile.gif Egad! I"m pushing up against my half a dozen or so limit!!! Closer to a dozen, hmm.

aw dude, it's funny you say that because I was just thinking last night how much I freakin love this neck!! the wood, the finish and how its thin but wide. it's just really amazing to play.
totally agree with you on playing different things on different guitars. One of the 'things' I like to play is the solo for Pearl Jams 'Alive' and I still prefer to play that on a Paul but all my speed picking exercises and stuff like that are pure joy on the ibby... wizard neck for the win!


y'know what..... Im cool with that trade off smile.gif Im sure chicks are more impressed with fast alt picking runs than huge biceps anyways cool.gif

Hahahahaha. Yeah smile.gif It has!!! I had a LP (Minarik Lotus) and I loved the sustain but it was heavier than my 30 inch scale 8 string!!!!
The ibby probablly feels like it's a paper light by comparison smile.gif

I'm sure you'll get back to the Gibson soon enough biggrin.gif There's something about those guitars that lures people, regardless of their weight and cumbersomeness in respect to playing. I must say, I am no Les Paul fan, in respect to playability, but that TONE, that can make me forget about a lot of things biggrin.gif

Well, I realized that I am more of a tone person rather than a playability person and I found myself not taking the ease of playing too much into account. For instance, I got a PRS Swamp Ash Special at home right now - it belongs to a friend - and it has a neck like a baseball bat, but sweet Jesus, does it sound awesome...

It's the green one with the maple neck:



More on it soon smile.gif
