RGR465M review anyone?

I am currently building a new project using an Ibanez Red 320DXQM and was really hoping to get something along the lines of a Premium neck. I was pretty much set on getting a custom neck from ET because I played a Guerilla recently and loved the neck and the 25th anniversary Ibanez is great.
However, I recently found a neck that had "RG3XXV" on the back of the headstock sticker but the neck is actually from a 465M...Yeah, I knew it was too good to be true to actually be a RG3.
Anyway, the neck specs are only 0.5mm off from what I'm really looking for in terms of thickness at the first and 12th fret and fretboard radius.
I haven't seen any reviews on here yet for the playability and feel of the neck. Anyone care to comment cause I'm very very interested in getting it.
I'd prefer a Premium but who wouldn't and then there's the price.

Re: RGR465M review anyone?

Thank you sir. I knew I should have just asked you in the first place!
This is for the guitar we were discussing last week.

Re: RGR465M review anyone?

Thank you again RGT. I found a great review on Lone Phantom's blog.
It's tough because I love a full warm sound and on the maple said he said the notes had a nice twang to them.
So I'm torn because I'd love the premium neck (if I ever found one) or a custom build from ET with the specs I want BUT the 465M has the specs I want only off by 0.5mm at the 1st and 12th fret - close enough. It has the 400mm radius though and not many Ibanez necks have that.
He did say his fingers glided over the neck though.
So custom neck with ebony and nicer fret work = $500
RGR465M neck = $150
What's a guy to do?

I'd absolutely give the 465 neck a go.........customs will always be available in the future. Your not going to find another one of those 465 necks anytime soon.

That and the fact that frets can always be touched up. Having the width and thickness dimensions and 400mm fretboard radius I want - not as easy to touch up.
I think will actually look pretty sweet on that 320DX QM red body we talked about.
Reverse headstock I even like a lot.
Pretty cheesy image but I had to get an idea. Looks nice I think...

Yeah, that will definitely look nice. Go for it man, show some picks when you have it put together.
