Necks on Jems - whats got what?

Greetings all,

I am wondering about the necks on Jems. Since I aquired my own, I've been researching these little animals some more and seeking out others who play or own them. (things have an addictive quality to em) What I have discovered is in contrast to what I find on paper.
I own an 89 FP - love that neck
Played a DY * * - Wizard neck I assume. Feels like a better RG
Played a BSB * - Don't know what to make of it. Doesn't feel like my FP or a Wizard
Played the one with the tar looking finish. (I know the model name, slipped my mind) Anyways, neck feels different from the rest again to me.
So. To the point: How many variations of neck combinations are there on the Jem? And how do they compare to each other? I hear alot of rave for the 7vwh. Is that neck different too?

oh yeah, one last note. I'm not even the least concerned about the 555's or Jr's. I won't even bother to give a second look to anything sporting a TRS trem. Had one on my first JS. And its a shame Iby even uses them on any guitar.

Best Regards to all,
Chadwick

The 555 IS the Jr.

DY, SK, LNG, all had the original JEM profile, wizard profile was only on the VDY, VSK, and then the VBK, DNA, and DBK (the tar finish one) *FP neck was a little different. *BSB I think is about like the FP and VWH. *The rest are basically the Jem neck profile, you can check out all the specs here on Jemsite though
