PGM301 1 piece neck vs PGM 301 J-Craft

Anyone knows which model of pgm301 is the best? The one with one piece neck or the one with 5 part neck (J-craft Team).

BUMP this in hopes of a reply because I'm interested in hearing opinions of 5 piece necks vs. older single pieces -- on any Ibanez, PGMs included.

Seriously there is no difference in playability or feel,it's just a construction technique.
Each is a s good as the other.

If you spear your guitar into walls then the true benefits of each would become apparent.
In which case the J team 5 piece would be a little tougher IMO

The way it was explained to me was the 5 piece neck resists warping better because the 5 pieces of wood will all react differently to humidity and temperature change where one piece necks only have one piece of wood to react to those changes.

This is true,it was explained on the Ibanez site when they first made the change.
