Question 2005 JEM/UV Neck Profile Changes?

I was just browsing around the Japanese Ibanez site and i saw this page, http://www.ibanez.co.jp/japan/frame_japan.html (click on the last bullet point an scroll down), showing the current neck dimensions for JEM/UV and in the same table what looks like new dimensions for both models. K7 and UV same dimensions? This kind of adds up due to the new 5 piece neck configuration or am i way off base?
If this is correct, it seems like they're really cutting back on any overproduction, with common platforms for the high end guitars they would save a lot of dosh.

Re: 2005 JEM/UV Neck Profile Changes?

Ibanez Japan still ID's it as "one-peice maple." It lists a nut thickness of 20mm- I could have sworn he old one was 21. I'm not sure I'd want the UV neck profile any thinner, but I'll wait until after I get my hands on one to judge.

Course, it could just be a faulty memory...

I just saw at http://www.musicianforums.com/forums...d.php?t=288604 links to another site with pics of both the '05 BRMR & '05 VWH having different necks. Looks like the '05 jems will have j-custom type necks.
