7 string neck help please.

Hi, i have a rg7620, ive played unis and other 7s but for the life of me I cant remember if the neck profiles differ? my 7620 as i imagine all 7620 have a thick neck behind the B and then taper out as the neck moves down toward the E is this the same on all other ibanez 7 necks? the uni has a conventional convex shape with the thickest point being behind the center of the neck doesn't it or am i going/gone frazy? cheers for your help.

HAGO

Re: 7 string neck help please.

The UV profile has changed a fair bit over the years. my UV7PWH is a fairly thin affair with a flat-ish profile while my UV777PBK is much more rounded and thicker.

Re: 7 string neck help please.

hi cheers for responding, are your git necks all symmetrical or is the neck below the B thicker on that side than the E side?

I've only got the 7PWH to hand. If anything the profile tapers a little more on the low b side - in other words it is a bit thicker towards the high e. Weird. Never really thought about that before.

Re: 7 string neck help please.

I have owned like 3 7620s and have never noticed this tapering. Mine were all slim and even across the back. Maybe the previous owner sanded it down?

My RG7620's neck has always seemed fairly uniform and flat to me, but I guess I've never really paid that much attention to it. I'll have to look at it when I get home.

Again, depends on the year. The newer UV's like mine are thicker than the older necks, and the profile isn't uniform, it's D shaped. Tough to explain, but as mentioned, you should really try them out for yourself because they vary substantially between models and even different years of the same models.
