UV necks vs Wizard 7 necks - how different are they

I have never had the opportunity to play a universe and was just wondering how different the neck was on the universe guitars as compaired to guitars packing the wizard 7 neck.

UV necks vs Wizard 7 necks

i dont know about the technical differences, but as far as the size goes, i cant really feel that much of a difference; *if anything, id say that the wiz7 is a little more round feeling. * the thing that really gets me is the nasty stuff on the back of the rg7 necks -- im all about raw wood or very light tung oil. * but as far as size, maybe my perception is off, *cuz i dont know the actual specs.

Thank you. *I know what you mean about raw wood. *Thats why I take the finish off of all my necks with 0001 grade steel wool. *It leaves them with that satin finish. *Just watch how hard you scrub so that you dont eat into the neck.

UV necks vs Wizard 7 necks

All necks will vary, but in general the UV neck feels flatter on the back, and the Wizard is a little more rounded. I can only speak for myself, because I have compared my UV777GR and my RG7620 quite a bit. If I remember correctly the exact specs are very colse(if not the same) and you can find the specs in the guitar section of Jemsite.....
