I have been following this board for a while.
I come right to the point.
I did buy 2 ibanez JS
early this year with a couple of months difference.
A JS1000BTB and a JS2000CG.
I wanted a pro setup because I wasn't verry happy with my setup and the fret conditions. I found one near me and he is also a builder.
I gave hime first My JS1000BTB. Me and my tech new that the guitar was supposed to be a multi radius neck ?
Uppon checking by him and double checking by me (I even have pictures).
We concluded that it was no Multi Radius neck. THe Fretboard had a radius of 10" all thru the fretboard.
I am feel verry sad about this cause I love this guitar.
My tech told me that this must be a mistake by the factory. So he asked me to check out the JS2000CG. It also is supposed to have a multi radius neck.
No dice same thing.
What now ? THe proint in having a multi radius is to have lower action without having the notes fret out wile bending. (And that is exactly the problem I'm having).
We measured the radius all thru the fretboard on both guitars and they are uniformly 10".
THe Serial numbers on the neck are: F0212656 for the JS1000BTB and F0204429 for the JS1000CG.
Guys , Rich,
Whats your take on this. Did ibanez indeed do a mistake ? Cause I'm sure it wasn't delliberate. Or am I or worse My tech making a mistake.
Does anybody now that the exact radiuses should be from the Nut to the End of the fretboard ?
I know the bridge is arced to 12". If thats right of course.
I Hope someone can help. Cause I am really depressed. You wan't to give your guitars and yourself super treatment and you get this info.
