what do you think 'bout these necks?

Hi guys ... i have to buy a neck for a body i bought on **** 1 year ago ... it's a square heel model ... i found these 2 on the bay:

http://cgi.****.it/Ibanez-RG550-MAPL...d=p3911.c0.m14


well ... i need your precious advice ... what is the best? i like the one with the maple fretboard (i never had one ... just tried once few moths ago) but in the first 5 frets the lacquer felt off ... the first one is cheaper but it has a not small crack behind the nut (actually the maple one has it too) .....

What is your opinion?
thanks for reading ..

I love rosewood boards myself and not too much on maple! That's me though, and you are the one that has to be happy with it! I also never liked that Maple shows its wear much more prominently...

If they both have cracks in them I would wait to find a better neck...Don't just jump on the first thing out there I promise, something else will come along when you least expect it...Patience grasshopper!

well ... your answers seem say to me "DON'T BUY ANYONE OF THEM !!" ... lol ... i didn't think that these 2 necks were so bad .... evidently i was totally wrong .... hahaha ...

PS why the maple fretboard is worst than the ebony one? .... i find it so confortable, especially when u play fast ..

I would avoid them just because of the neck cracks.

Maple vs Ebony vs Rosewood is personal preference, one is not better than the others.

Absolutely, just a personal thing with me. Unfortunately you get too used to one thing and it gets stuck with you! I love odd shaped guitars in look, but am really only comfortable with a strat styled one...
