7-String Neck Specs

I think the main difference between the UV neck and the wizards is the shape of the UV. You got a bit more to grip on, making it easier to play. the wizard necks are a bit too thin imo.

Actually, the thickness of the K7 neck is 21.5mm at the 1st fret, 23mm at the 12th.

7-String Neck Specs

Yeah, I noticed the dates of the posts after I replied.

Sorry 'bout that.

It looks like this forum was pretty active until a few months ago, then went quiet...

So there never was this thick 21,5/23mm K7 neck?
ALL K7 necks are 19/21mm necks???

I just bought a Ibanez K7 BG from 2001 F0125xxx , and having a hard time finding the real specs of this guitar... I have measured my K7 neck, and it is 19/21mm in thickness. Just wondering about this 21,5/23mm neck??? Myth???

Oh great, I didn't see this thread before I asked

Guys Can you please tell me which Ibanez 7 string neck would fit my 99 MIJ 7620 but with a much flatter and thinner profile contour (and also a flatter fretboard than my 7620)?

thanks

Re: 7-String Neck Specs - As found on www.ibanez.co.jp

I would check out a neck from a 7420 with the bubinga stripe. the one I have is thinner at the ends then my 7620s. It reminds me more of a universe neck.
As for flatter fretboard radius , as far as I know they are all the same.

the necks are supposed to be the same , but mine are not.
and I can compare as I have
3 7620s and a 7621 all the same profile
7420 thinner at the edges than the 7620
1527, similar to the 7620 but with less flat in the middle of the neck
rgct . really close to the 7620, but a little thicker

someday I'll have to do a profile of each for a visual comparison

For a flatter fretboard radius I think you need to go the custom neck route, but the 7620 trem (Lo Pro Edge 7) is designed with a specific radius in mind...

The wildcard here though is a bunch of the initial 7420s (which were also MIJ) were assembled using 7620 necks - in fact, I think for the period they were made in the same factory, the necks were identical and all stamps 7-620. You keep seeing all these guys selling "7420s with a 7620 neck" or at least you used to, but the reason for that was they used the same ones, and just stamped them all 7-620.

The specs may have changed over the years, but for a while there they were the same, at least.

It's been ages since I owned many of these guitars, but my recollection was:

7620 - more of a C contour
2027 - a hair thicker, more of a D shape, with thicker shoulders
7CST - pretty sure this was the same profile as the 2027
1527 - pretty sure this was the same as the 2027 and CST as well - thicker shoulders, more of a flat D

FWIW, the neck on a 1527 I used to own was hands down the best Ibanez seven string neck I'd ever played. Super comfortable, and IMMACULATE fretwork.

Hirah and Jazzedout are right, though - you're not going to find an Ibanez with a radius flatter than 16", and if you did it'd cause problems with the trem. And while it's possible later-generation 7420s are thinner than your 7620, I wouldn't bet on it. Your best bet might just be to strip the finish and sand it down a bit, eventually smoothing it back with 0000-gret steel wool and then liberally apply tung oil or some other finish when you're done, and reshape it yourself. Be VERY careful not to sand through the back into the truss rod cavity, though, and definitely expect your neck to be less stable and more sensitive to climate changes when you're done.
