I've never encountered an SG with small guard (1961-1965) having a baseball bat neck.
1970 SG Junior...
They cut the baseball bat in half lengthwise and glued a fretboard on top.
Oh wow! Thats thick, well Im not super obssessed over neck shapes, Im mostly only familiar with slim tapers and Strat necks. Its just the neck felt thicker than a slim taper and felt nothing like my SGs at home, I have small hands so it was noticeably different in feel for me.
The new '64 Reissue has a thicker neck than the Historic '61 Reissue, which is also thicker than the '50s Rounded profile used on the Standard and Special for many years.
- USA Slim Taper D profile (.800 / .875")
- Historic Slim Taper C profile (.830" / .960")
- USA Rounded '50s profile (.830" / .970")
- Historic '64 profile (.880" / .990")
