RG550 neck compared to JEM505

Hi all,

I currently own a 1989 RG550 and are considering getting a JEM 505 and was wondering if any one out there has had playing time on both and could give me some insight on the differences (or similarities) of the necks. I love how thin my 550 is.

Thanks,
Kevin

Re: RG550 neck compared to JEM505

Unless you specfically want a new guitar (white) I would try a Jem 7DBK. It has a great neck and I have found that it has similiar profile to early 550 necks.
