Multi radius JS neck question

I was wondering if anyone knows what the exact radius progression for the multi radius neck on the JS models is? Ibanez says the neck has a 240mm radius (9.5" ?) but if it's multi radius, I believe it should be like the Parker Fly (eg 10" at the start to 13" towards the last frets) neck? It would be great if someone could shed some light on this

hi eddie! thanks for the quick post i'm not sure because i don't think it's stated anywhere else on the net, except for the Ibanez specs.

AFAIK there are no official Ibanez measurements. The old Chromeboy section on the JS site used to give his measuremnts but that was with the fretwork also done. They've changed his site around so much now I don't even know if it's still online. Visually [because I have no radius blocks between 9.5 and 20"] I'd have to say it's around 11" at the 22nd?

thanks Rich! i just found it here in the archives - http://www.satriani.com/2000/about/gear/ 10 - 11" towards the end would be a very good estimate i guess

I would say 10" since it is 10" at the 22nd...11" may be too much.

heheh little difference i guess the reason i am asking is because i have never really played a compound radius neck before testing the JS1000WH at the store and i absolutely loved the way the neck felt! i find the wizards a little too thin and flat (wizard ii is better but not by much) but when i tried the JS, it was beautiful.

came back to the store a short while later with the intention to buy it but it was sold so i placed an order for the JS1000 BTB, i can't wait for that to arrive three months they said, arrgh the wait...
