    All four of my Santana shaped guitars have slightly different neck profiles. They’re all super comfy though.

    Ugh... I am so not needing to see such a beautiful guitar! LOL

    Seriously, congrats. I also like the dark rings better! Looks more 'put together'.

    I have to agree regarding my westy and retro. Those comfortable differences inspire the slightest changes in my lead playing structure in good way, hard to explain but I think you know what I mean.

    Word. Yeah, my Santana is the same way. The plain West St. (no baby dragon) I have is the biggest of them all.

    Man, you have one of those too? I don’t recall the only other one of those I’ve played having all that big of a neck, I’ll have to check it out again.

    Yeah.., that plain west st. Must be cool ! I remember photos. I love the west st pickups. I’ll get the caliper out tomorrow and do some measurements for the hell of it. Can’t do it tonight can I get up extra early for work tomorrow, gotta hit the hay.

    This photo of the brush24 will jog your memory
