rg 760 vs rg 560 or bound neck vs non-bound

ok after a couple years playing Kramer's I have recently come back to Ibanez RGs. This may be a dumb question but how does having a bound neck effect the sound of a guitar or does it? I have a couple RG560's and need 1 more but I have a chance to buy a 760 in good shape cheap. These are the same guitars other than the bound neck and will have the same pickups. My needs are that I have my guitars in different tunings but need them to have the same sound so when recording it basically sounds like the same guitar. Anyways, I was wondering if someone could give me some insite. TIA - Dann

I don't think binding will effect the sound.
It just for 'the look'.
And I do love rosewood/ebony fret with binding, it adds 'character' to it.

In my experience, even the same model guitars can sound a little different. But, don't think binding will change the tone. It just for visual appeal.
