Re: Axes that compare to Jems in playability
I'll go with the opinion expressed by the guy near the top of this thread -- that is, mold yourself to the guitar.
For years, I was molded to the wizard neck. My first Ibanez was a great (little did I know at the time) RG570 which I found in a pawn shop. Later, I had a 520QS that I adored -- the so-called, and justifiably so, "super wizard" neck. But happenstance dictated for tone reasons that my new favorite be the RG3120 -- a bit thicker neck. Now, after a couple years of the RG3120 prestige neck being my favorite, the wizard seems a bit too thin to me, a thing which I found to be very surprising. At first I much disliked the 3120's non wizard neck. But, I got used to it. So, what to make of this? What you mold yourself to, via practice, within reason, will be your favorite. And, with more practice, you can deliberately, and with premeditation, _change_ what your favorite is. Your favorite is, to a large extent defined by what it is that you're used to.
