Neck on 777DY

I picked up my 777DY with a bit of apprehension because after looking at the Jemsite, it said that the neck was fatter than the regular Jems. Well after playing it, it feels to me that it may be more wider than fatter. When I think fat, I usually think of fingerboard to back of neck and not width of the fingerboard. The neck felt really thin front to back, which is what I like (almost wizard like).

Also, since this is an 87, it may have been worn down a bit. My 5 minute assessment? It will be a great playing guitar after i set it up to my specs. The action is a bit high and the bar is a little stiff, but I think it will be a keeper. I'm also gonna clean the neck and board as per the Jemsite tech tips.

Well, I'm done with my Jems, unless a 10 or a swirl pops up for under 1K - in my dreams!!!!

I love the DY neck. To me it feels so comfortable and it shreds And if Pete (welshpete) ever wants to sell his, he knows where I am

I love the neck on my 777DY. Its more comfortable to me than any other Jem I have ever played hands down. Probably because its so broken in. I had a mint DY that was hardly played and the neck just didn't feel the same as my broken in one. It felt like I was playing a totally different guitar.
