Thick Neck Option

Hi there,

For years i love ibanez guitars. Now, actually, i'm more into vintage guitars. I still love the appearance of the classic ibanez RGs, S series etc. BUT i can't stand paper thin necks. It is way too difficult for me to comfort with them.

I really like to see ibanez guitars with "wizard neck" and "thick neck" options so that players can choose.

Re: Neck Options

Have you played any of the SZ series? The feel is between a LP and PRS. Definitely nothing like a wizard neck.

SZs were pretty well. But i haven't seen and RG or S with that neck profile and that's the problem, imo.

Re: Neck Options

I agree, what I would like is a 24 fret mahogany RG with the Ritchie Blackmore neck, included graduated scalloped fingerboard, 41mm nut and C shape thickness 430mm radius though. Well, it would probably only be me. Gotta find a luthier.

Re: Neck Options

Return to using the 2 piece scarf neck joints- hate the feel of the 5 piece necks being made currently

Re: Neck Options

JS has very fine neck profile but still not close to "baseball bat" necks of Les Pauls.

We should also remind the Viper necks of 90s...

Re: Neck Options

I think Viper and Ultra are the same thing. And yes I like that neck a lot more, have it on my JPM-p2.

Couldn't agree more. I scalloped a JPM neck, and it's my favorite neck.

DIY scalloping neck

Yes, the good old JPM necks were cool, too.
