DY neck thickness

The neck on my latest DY is a bit thinner than the profile on my other 777s. I'd say it's probably half way between the 'standard' 777 profile and a wizard profile. Anyone else ever come across this? I'd like to find another DY neck to replace this one if that is a possibility.

Re: DY neck thickness

I think there was more variation in the neck thicknesses back then, in truth most of the DYs i've tried have had thicker necks than more modern JEMs

Re: DY neck thickness

My 1998 jem7v has a much thicker neck than my 89 vdy and my custom swirl I built that has a 88fp neck fitted. I cant comment on how thick the necks are on todays jems as I have never felt the need to try one.

Re: DY neck thickness

Thanks for the replies. I wasn't referring to necks for modern Jems, but rather for the 777 series. Also, the VDY would have a thinner neck as these were built using the wizard profile (not the Jem profile).

Re: DY neck thickness

Mine have all for the most part been pretty uniform. This latest one is just the thinnest one I've come across (obviously).
