I'm the same, though I was thinking off white.

I just noticed on Rich's site, that the new JS model is multi radius. Also, the thickness of the neck is 19mm at first fret going up to 21mm.

Pretty sure that it's incorrect

Re: Ibanez JS2410-SYB

Since 1998 when they lasered Chromebody they always said the new neck program was based on the rear carve of Chromeboy, which was cut the way he wanted, multi radiused. Refers to the back of the neck, not the fretboard.

Anybody know when they changed the spec from 19-21 to 20-22.3?? I've just been copying the same specs over. I'd never notice 1mm, comfortable is comfortable, always my favorite neck.

There is currently an issue with all the Prestige Wizard specs. They're all supposed to be 17-19 Wizard HP but if you measure them they're all 20/21-22/23. I even went back to check a 2 year old 652, same thing. Genesis, same thing. Was brought to my attention by somebody that had bought a 5320L somewhere else complaining the neck wasn't Wizard. I figured he was just imagining it so I pulled one out to measure for him, 21-23. They've gone much more C shape in the back which is where the extra thickness is coming from. Not like I measure neck specs as part of incoming inspection and nobody has said a thing. Called my rep, he said he had a dealer that swore the necks were alot fatter and pulled out his 89' 550 to show him. I have a letter to Japan in my task bar still waiting for the company email to come up to send it and get to the bottom of it because every model is listed as 17-19 and every dealer is using the same spec.
lordhar and chris101 like this.

Coolio, so the necks are all over the place. 😬

Interesting, that's a serious difference –*21-23 + C shape is old Roadstar territory! I've often fantasized about a square heel RG with a thicker neck, ahh gas...

This seems to be turning into another episode like pinched studs/fat knives. Dealers and players: 'these ain't Wizard necks', Ibz management: 'no, no, spec sheet says Wizard, 17-19'.

Re: Ibanez JS2410-SYB

I want this JS so bad, but I don't need another floater. I wish it had the FX trem so could lock it in place. Still an awesome looking guitar I love the contrast in color between the pups and finish!
