I just got my Fender Jaguar today after playing nothing but an RG 550 for the last year. Something I noticed right away was how much faster I am on the Jag's neck than the RG's. I don't get it, I thought wizards were meant for shredding faster than any other guitar? The RG is still my favorite guitar but I must prefer the shape and thickness of the Jag's neck, I can play arpeggios and intricate riffs (i.e. "Follow" by Incubus on the Halo 2 soundtrack...trying to play this song without error is an excercise for me, the riff is HARD!) MUCH faster and accurately than on the RG. It feels better than everything I've played, RG, Jem, UV, various hardtails. Does anyone else find that a thicker neck makes them faster?
