Re: Prestige fret ends and maple necks
If I am not wrong, the prestige of the old days have their fret ends rounded up, kinda like bullet and the frets are really well polished up. The normal RG5XX series just have theirs filed in a slope manner. The prestiges no longer has that rounded fret ends treatment. Only the J custom does. From my memory of the reissues, they just have their fret ends like the old RG5XX series. No rounding of frets and such. In terms of smoothness, they are passable. But don't expect J custom treatment.
