Recent Jem neck spec change

Hi....I remember reading something on here last summer(?) about the increase in width in the Jem necks. I have an '05 7Vwh and an '07 77Vbk, and they have exactly the same neck as far as I can tell. But the reason I'm asking is......if I were to get, say, a 7Vsbl, what would the difference be in the feel of the neck, if any. Is it true it would be narrower at some point? I think it may have been Rich who mentioned something on this, but I can't find it in a search. I don't believe it had to do with thickness, but width (E to E) . Thanks

Haven't heard something about a spec change.

I believe it's up at the 24th fret end. I've heard "rumours" about the change but haven't ever verified it myself.

I thought it was to be where the neck was measured something like 22nd vs 24th fret, but I could well be wrong.

The heel width changed to 58mm in 2005, which is why both your are the same. Get one made prior and you have 2mm less width at the last fret.
