Exclamation J Custom RG8327 Neck feel

I have heard so many conflicting things about this guitar neck
http://jemsite.com/jem/necks.htm

Smallest Overall Size Neck
Wizard Neck 7PBK
777VDY
J-Customs (many)
RG5xx/7xx
USAC "Custom Graphic"
555

Uggh... the plot thickens...
I know they are hand finished... but the 'many' j customs with thin necks bothers me... is there anyone who has played the RG 8327 on here who can tell me about it
i wouldnt think this is likely but someone whos played a UV7BK or at least another 7 string RG (maybe 1527 or UV777BK) who can compare this?

additionally none of the new J customs are listed on here why?

anyway thanks for the info

Re: J Custom RG8327 Neck feel

Well I have an RG8127VV and the neck feels just like an rg1527, except its many times smoother and the fret job is imcomparably better. Its got less boradness to it then a UV neck too... 7 string J customs are real shred machines =)

are you looking to buy a J custom 7?

Re: J Custom RG8327 Neck feel

just the RG8327. Its either that, a UV7BK I will mod for EMGs or the UV777.
I hope to one day acquire all three.

i heard from Buz of Unearth that his RG8427 has a UV like profile. Is this true on your guitar?

My guitar neck is a bit thinner then that, Like I said the shoulders arent as broad on the neck, Its only a tad flatter but its got that curve to it, Iunno.. extremely fast neck though!

Re: J Custom RG8327 Neck feel

same price as the 8427's... I was looking at em though the extra 400$ in shipping + import fees is quite the turnoff

Re: J Custom RG8327 Neck feel

I always found the J-C 7 string necks to be in between a UV and a Wizard-7. Pretty much all JC necks have a slight assymetrical curve to it and feels slightly thicker on one side than the other.
