Flattest necks...

This doesn't apply to just jems, uv's but I was wondering which neck you think is the flattest?
There is lots of talk of which neck is the thinnest, but which one is the flattest, as flat as an ironed pancake.
Thoughts?

Re: Flattest necks...

Won't be buying an acoustic any time soon, but hell I'll investigate these here vigers.

Any more?

While we're here, flattest, jp6 or jem?

Re: Flattest necks...

for me it has to be one of those Casio synth guitars - the one (and only one) I tried was as flat as Paris Hilton

Re: Flattest necks...

Are you referring to flatness of the fingerboard or back of the neck?

Is the radius refering to the back of the neck or the fingerboard?
Cos I've been on about the fingerboard lol.
I remember the JPM being super flat.

Re: Flattest necks...

why not just look up the measurements?.. the jem, UV and JPM necks are all 430mm radius so they're all exactly the same flatness

Re: Flattest necks...

Oooh, see that's helpfull.
So the JS fretboards are insanely flat? And as I remember, the JPM is flatter than a Jem.

Re: Flattest necks...

See that means nothing to me lol.
I checked the specs on here and all i can tell is the jem/uv radius is 430mm and the js 240mm.
How this related to the flatness I'm a little unsure of.
Oh and the Viper (jpm) neck is 305mm.
