I have a 50’s Studio with P90’s love it
It’s currently at the motherland dropped it off at Gibson Garage and they agreed needs new nut and fret level. I’m looking at an R7 gold top how similar are neck profile!
In my experience (I owned a 50's Tribute with P-90s and own several Custom Shop and USA models with 50s necks) the USA model 50's necks were nowhere near as substantial as Reissue and Custom Shop necks. The new Original Collection guitars have 50s necks which are much closer to the Reissue and Custom Shop neck dimensions.
I would expect an R7 to have a chunkier neck than a 50s Studio. JMHO. YMMV.
