Re: anyone play a recent Gilbert 301?!?
And necks can be the same measurements at the Ibanez neck chart on there web page, but have a completely different shape, more or less C, more or less D and so on.
Witch completely changes the feel of the neck, even if the radius is the same.
I have played several PGM301 at clinics, where I change guitars for every tune, and my impression are that they feel thinner then most RG style Prestige necks (I know there are a couple of different ones). Most S style Prestige necks feels a bit thicker, even when they on paper are the same shape necks.
Most JEM also feels on the thinner side, and a bit more D shaped then wizard.
But all these impressions are not constant, I have three RG3120 with different shaped necks, not big differences, but noticeable, for example.
I have three Rg1527, two feels exactly the same, one have a 2mm thicker neck then the other two, and they are all from the same year (and same shipment).
Don’t know what I’m trying to say here… :-)
Maybe that one guitar of X model is not always the same as the next one.
