Re: Why are all RG prestige necks so thin?
Simply put man, hi end Ibanez are made for shredders or virtuosos. You need any advantage you can utilize when playing at that level, and for a 6 stringer a thin D profile like ESP and Ibanez make movement faster, in the same way that if the shortest distance between 2 points idea is applied in a physicist way, the closer the strings are together (aka the shorter/less wide string spacing gives a lil more speed), same way the closer you can keep your fingers to the strings without touching it but ready to fret at any time, its the same with the profile.
Now, idk how old you are man, but 80's was about PLAYING, and now its become how big and how many strings can you get, like as if they were muscle cars.
Anyway man, yeah, simply put: they are meant to shred , HELL YEAH!!!
