Re: Thinking of a UV
Thanks, I heart my older UV's. I dont know if its a question of better, although, some would argue that the 5 piece necks are more stable and consistent as a whole. For me, its personal preference. The contour of the older UV necks is thinner and more flat which works well for me as I still wrap my thumb around in certain walking bassline situations. I find it harder to do the same with the more rounded modern necks. Also Lopro Edge7 vs Edge Pro7 is pretty much a deal breaker for me from a tone and performance perspective. I do have several Edge Pro 7's, but I always gravitate back for heavy trem noodling. As to the neck joints, AANJ is awesome, and I always thought it was a must, but honestly, the more time spend on on square heel, the less I feel it is completely necessary. Certaily not worth giving up the flatter neck profile for me personally.
