Jem70v neck same as HP prestige?

Hi all,

I tried a Jem70v last night and I absolutely loved the neck, was not as thin or flat feeling imo compared to a normal prestige neck, felt 'rounder' on the back.

I was wondering if anyone knew if the HP prestige neck was similar?

I have my eye on a prestige online which has the HP neck but unsure if its like the normal prestige flat U or if it is more like the Jem neck, which to me felt really nice.

The specs are exactly the same on the Ibanez website but I've being caught out before buying guitars based on mm specs as the specs don't mention neck shape.

It depends on which prestige neck you looking at. The Wizard HP or The Super Wizard HP. They're different.

The 70v you played had a Premium JEM profile and a 16" fretboard radius......... all of the Prestige necks have a 17" radius.

Looking at the Wizard HP, I know the Super Wizard HP is super thin so that's a no no for me.

That's the thing that annoys me a little about the specs they give, in that the premium series and prestige (some) have the same specs of 18mm 1st and 20mm 12th but they have completely different neck shapes (not radius but back of neck).

I bought a 1520A PPN thinking it would be similar to a premium of mine (same specs) but the back of the neck is very flat in comparison, not even remotely close to each other.

I can't try the prestige I'm looking at due to it being online and also a NOS 2009 model, so trying to find something that is comparable, which made me try the 70v.
