js vs js prestige neck

anyone have any comments on this? I played an old js100 a while ago, but I didnt like it very much.

I am curious, because it seems the new JS100's are pretty decent instruments now. ibanez.com states the 1000's have the "prestige" vs regular neck, but all their measurements are completely identical. Is there something different about them?

My local guitar center does not carry signature or prestige models of ibanez (but they have about 30 top end PRS and at least 20 Gibsons behind the counter -.-), so I cant go "try it out".

This is one of those mysteries... even Joe doesn't quite know:

The back of the neck is multi-radiused, slightly lopsided to fit the natural shape of your hand, and the fretboard has a subtle compound radius of a roughly constant 250mm.

Yeah, i think the prestige is a laser perfect repro of his "favorite neck" of of one of his main guitars.

An exact digital rendering of the neck from 'Blackdog' - Joe's first prototype. Thank god they recovered it after it was stolen.

Re: js vs js prestige neck

hmmm
i have a 1000 and 6000 and the necks are a world apart... i think don't know what neck is on the 6000 but its much fatter in feel... i love em both though,,
although i've had the js1000 far longer so that neck just fits my hand..or my hand now fits the neck...i've got a 2000 on the way aswell cant wait to see how close that is to the 1000...?
