Jem7PBK - Question about the neck

Hello there,

I have a question about the neck of the Jem7 PBK.
I read on this site that it is a wizard neck and not a
Jem777 neck wich was used on the other guitars
during that period. Now is my question, why?
Had Ibanez laying some of these necks around or
did Steve Vai wanted a Jem with a Wizard neck.
(Same question goes for the Jem777DSY)

welcome to the forum. The JEM7PBK is a wizard-like neck with smaller profile than the original 777 necks, featured on the DY. It is unknown why that profile was selected, and if it were a Vai request, or something Ibanez did and he signed off on. He played alot of FPs and UV prototypes around that time anyways... glen
