Jem VDY neck profile is similar to what? Wizard?

Looks like the Jem VDY has the smallest neck profile?
Is it identical to the Wizard?

I have a VDY and would like to buy a typical RG550 but only if the neck profiles are similar?
Does someone know?

Appreciate any input - thank you.

Keep in mind, these necks were hand finished... some may be more" finished" then others....

Specs are identical, but that does not mean they are identical. Pointing to what LP said.

All the JEMs and RGs I have are very similar to one another.
The only ones that I notice being different are-
JEM7VWH very narrow neck and thicker
RG770DX Very wide neck and very thin

My JEM77VBK and my RG550 have the exact same neck feel

between the necks you feel difference! i have a thin 550 and a jem feel 550.both from 1987!
the vdy wich i have is thinner than my 550 and thicker than the pbk neck.
the jem necks are different also, maybe i feel everything but i dont mind, can play with all of them!
