Question Dislike the neck on my rg321

I bought a used RG321,on a whim,Ive played/owned alot of different guitars with various neck shapes from large C necks to slim wizardnecks ect... but after playing the RG321 it makes my hand feel VERY fatigued..it seems its just how my thumb n tendions in my wrist rest on this neck,the neck plays fast but feels like crap ..if that makes anysense,granted I guess its cause its make in korea n they dont pay close attention to neck shapes.
Anyone else feel this way????
Im really thinking of shaving the neck to a more comfy shape,or have it done professionally.

I have an RG321MH, and I actually love the neck. It plays well, smooth, and doesn't cause any hand problems.

The necks are made by CNC, so there's no real 'paying attention' to it invlolved. They don't write the specs of the neck in Korea, just execute the programs on the wood there.

Re: Dislike the neck on my rg321

The 321 neck is the same of the 350/370 necks, right?
If so, I also dislike this kind of neck.
I've tested some, none of them felt good to me.
I didn't play for a long time so I can't say about fatigue, though.
