Jem 777 neck measurements

Does anyone have the neck measurements for the older, fatter, 777 LNG neck. I have an old 777, and absolutely love the neck on it. I have a vbk that I want to replace the neck, it currently has an RG560 neck on it, with a neck similar to the fatter 777 neck.

I am currently communicating with Chris Woods about a neck but not sure what measurements/features I should request.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Pete

Thanks for the help,

Re: Jem 777 neck measurements

Well the old 777 necks were a bit fatter and more D shaped if I remember, so that link actually might be a little off from an LNG's neck. Maybe it was more wizard profile, I'm sure Chris has made lng type necks so he should know what the specs need to be.

Edit: yup original Wizard for those necks http://www.jemsite.com/articles-menu...s-777-guitars/

Re: Jem 777 neck measurements

I believe it's hard to get the "feeling" of a neck only for the measurements.
There are details that can't be expressed in numbers.
The best way to go is to have an original neck in hand in order to make a replica.
