I was initially attracted to this guitar because it was so clean and nicely preserved. When I picked it up, I immediately noticed what felt like a '59 era neck thickness at the first fret, although the profile had slightly wider shoulders than I'm used to feeling on '59 Gibsons. I measured the neck thickness as soon as I got it home and found .87" at the first fret and 1.03" at the 12th!

It's got a nice full neck profile but is also a spectacular playing example of an early 70s Kalamazoo made goldtop. You can check out all the pictures and information here: 1971 Gibson Les Paul Deluxe goldtop (sold thank you!)
