I'm waking up this thread because I bought one of these "vintage select" '59s. I read a lot about these and bought one online. Did not play it first. (Ha ha on me!) I found the neck to be larger (thicker) than I expected. It's something of a handful after about the 5th fret. It's been a really long time since I had an NC in my hands, and then only briefly. But I don't remember the neck being quite so big. I think that I would have noticed that right away. This one is a beautiful instrument, of course. Lacquer finish. Inside it has parallel bracing with a post front-to-back. And I actually like the fine frets. But I am finding that I cannot "bond" with it. Know that experience? LMark
