Good Neck?

I want to start a JEM project and was wondering what a good neck would be to choose? or get one made? I want the vine inlays but my budget is limited so I could pass on the inlays. I would spend 200-250 bucks. I want a neck that's thin and fast and plays just like the JEM should. Thanks!!!

Re: Good Neck?

the wizard 1 is , indeed thiner than a jem neck, but their shape are a little different, i would vote for a 550 neck, i have one and they're very confortable for speed but also bending and that stuff.

Jem 77BFP! I tried the Jem7v, Jem 555 and the cheap Jem333 and the Jem 77 BFP's neck feels much better

If you can, check out Ernie at www.etguitars.com, he's a really cool guy to work with and his stuff is top notch. He can make you a neck.

Yes, that is correct. Although, you're going to pay $25 more if you want an ebony board, plus a few of his inlay options cost more (e.g. vine inlay- if you want mirrored acrylic, that might be an upcharge). In regards to timeframe, it depends on how busy he is at any given moment, but don't forget that it's custom work and although he uses a CNC machine, it'll still take some time. Ernie REALLY spends a lot of time on his work, and from what I've heard he doesn't charge you until you're happy with the finished product.
