Subject: RE: BS: Old Instruments As Opposed To New Ones..
The other thing to remember about old guitsrs is that they all have way too mucj wood on the neck. Taylor have shown how it should be done. I have refined the necks of several old Martins (and attracted much derision from some vintage-worshippers because I ruined the resale values), but what the hell, the player ended up with a much more playable instrument.

Right now I have a '64 Gibson twelve-string that is going to receive the same treatment. Why did they make necks like that ?
