I completely prefer the AANJ. I own a '87 DY and a '91 UVMC with the older style neck joints. They both have excellent playability with the exception of the upper frets. It seems more noticeable on the DY as opposed to the UVMC. When I go to solo on the DY, the square block on the body seems like a major obstacle. On the UVMC it does'nt seem that big of a deal, probably because the neck is wider throughout. Besides, I've only played the UVMC twice, so that's not a good comparison. When I compare the playability with my 90 HAM, 7VWH, or DNA, soloing is much easier with the aanj. Play a few before you make your decision, it's a matter of personal preference. --rvj
