7vsbl neck compared to 2005/2007 jem

I was wondering if there is a really noticeable difference between the 56mm heel neck jem before 2005 , like a 7vsbl, compared to the 58mm necks like on my 2005 and 2007 jems. Since my 7Vwh (2005) and 77Vbk (2007) jems are my ultimate favorite guitars, and the necks on those are basically exact, I was wondering how a neck on a 7vsbl would compare. Why? Well, I'm thinking of adding the 7vsbl to my collection soon, and I've never played an Ibanez pre-2005 model before the neck change. Would it throw me, or be not even really noticeable?

I know others are really gonna disagree with me, but having played MANY 56 and 58mm guitars..........I really can't feel a difference. There may be a slight difference above the 14-15th frets, but it's so minimal that I can't feel it. Below 14..... the necks feel identical even when looking for a difference.
