Jem 7vwh- Differences between the years?
As far as feel is concerned, I like 'm both just as much, although the 2001 neck is brand new, so it still has it silky feel to it.
For the looks I like the 2001 neck a bit better, because the vine is more complete. And on this neck all the MOB inlay pieces have lots of blue in it, which looks just stunning, if hit by light in the right way. Also the old one needs some repairwork at the inlays. They used quite a lot of filler around the smaller pieces of inlay, and that filler is in some places quite damaged to the point that one piece of inlay actually came loose. This is due to the extreme poor handling of the previous owner tho, not due to lack of quality by Ibanez.
