Gibson J-45 50s/60s

AmigoAmigo Frets: 63
Anyone tried these? They are supposed to have narrower necks (1"11/16) that are thicker (more C-shaped, not flat) than the standard J45s. The current reissues, that is.

    The original 50s/60s?
    The 50s is a chunky C and a wider nut.  the 60s is slimmer and more like a standard 

    They sound blooming good

    Compared a 50's and standard recently. 50's neck maybe a bit fatter? Has a bigger pick gard and nicer white button machineheads. 

    Tonally the standard has tighter lows and brighter trebles whereas the 50's is mellower on attack and highs. Both sound great, pick the standard if you want a slightly more hifi tone.

    Would the current r60s and 50s reissues not have the same neck then?

    No. Slim thin vs fatter wider
