Jem neck

ok, as of late, I recently got a 7DBK and the neck is awsome and really thin, 17mm at the first fret i belive. well today my friend came over with his 555 and i hadnt played it in a while. I noticed the neck seemed really chunky, so i looked up specs apparently the neck is 19MM at the first fret 21 at the 12th. then i thought to myself whats the specs on the Jem7VWH neck and they're the same. heres my question why do they feel so different? I havent played a 7VWH in a while but if i remember correctly they felt SO different whats the difference here?

Re: Jem neck

Oh yeah sorry probably cos the jem 555 ain't jem 7v and the frets they uses are different, the jumbo frets on 555 is so damn big

Re: Jem neck

7v (and 555?) = Jem neck
DBK = Wizard

Re: Jem neck

I know my DBK is like one of the thnnest necks on a jem,however whats the deal with the feel of the 555 neck compared to the 7VWH if they have the same specs as far as 1st and 12th fret size?

Re: Jem neck

The necks have the same measurements but they feel different because the 555 has a korean wizard II neck which is shaped slightly different to the jem (7V) neck.
Also the 555 has bigger frets, not taller but much wider so it feels different to play.

555 is a RG350DX with Evolutions..........
