Rich would disagree. But there are lots of us who love them both. We just hammered this topic out in another recent thread. It ended in a group hug.
Actually, except for most of the 540R LTDs they have Ultra necks which are a nice in-between compromise. I love Ultras. I'm less fond of Wizards.
It is of course all about personal preference, and with this guitar I have found perfection for me !
I do love the JS
neck, but prefer this one.
There's no right or wrong, just what's right for you !
I am smiling from ear to ear today, as I just got my front row ticket for Satch at London Hammersmith Apollo in October, and I bought the meet & greet package too ... can't wait !!
I know Joe used to play the 540 before it became his slightly different signature series, so when I see him, I'll ask his opinion on the guitar, and post his reply !! Happy days !!
I might even take it and have him sign it !!!
