The neck on the relic is different from the non-aged N4's and is a bit slimmer than them, The neck on all of them isnt as slim as a wizard neck, but its nice and flat, and very comfy, but in a different kinda way, it doesnt feel as 'big' from top to bottom as my Jem 7V either, but it does feel 'played in' and very very comfy, it doesnt look it, but its just as fast as a good Wizard II neck

hope this helps

feels completely different than any wizard or rg neck. the back is pretty fat like a strat and the fretboard radius is not as flat as the rg's.

Re: From Ibanez to Washburn

Always fancied one, but the trouble is the bodies are tiny so not great for us folk over 6 foot. They end up looking like a ukulele!

Re: From Ibanez to Washburn

I don't know if I can agree with that..

My N4 beside my Carvin Bolt+C

The N4 is lighter.. But I'm 6'4" 295 and I don't feel like the N4 is undersized on me anymore than any other guitar..A Les Paul actually feels the oddest to me as far as size goes..

Re: From Ibanez to Washburn

Maybe I should give one another go then. Is that Carvin pretty much Strat sized?

The N4 body felt like a toy last time, but they are great sounding guitars.

I was surprised how small the N's are.I had a N2 for a while and next to my Strat it looked tiny,but you soon get used to it

Re: From Ibanez to Washburn

whats going on with the volume pot on the natural non-padauk one?

they do look quite cool and different. id love to try out an L-500 pickup, based on what ive heard its awesome. dimebag, nuno, arjen lucassen (ayreon), they all have great tone.

I thought the relic was the model which actually had the holographic N4 sticker on it? Isn't the one you have the ESA version?

Yeah,I just thought that,but that's the reason the screw's in the volume knob I reckon

Oh,I think they leave the sticker/decal off incase you dont want it on the guitar

That's what I'd do too, if *sigh* I had one.
The sound of these guitars is giant.
