Ibanez rg1527 prestige neck
Hi guys, me again. Did some research into buying a neck for my 1527 project. A replacement 1527 neck is going to set me back over £300 here in the uk... I know people in the US, so would it be more cost effective to get it sent to a friend in the states? Also how does it compare to other prestige necks? I've got a xiphos at the moment and really like the feel of that neck, but of a prestige neck is going to feel better (which I'm
Expecting) then I don't want to get a standard neck. After all, the guitar is a prestige model. I don't quite like the dot inlays on the 1527 neck though. I did see an rgd 7 neck with slightly better inlays, but it only had one screw hole in te heel instead of 4. I guess what I'm asking is "is there a noticeable difference in playability and stability in the prestige necks and how would I go about getting one?" I guess replacing the inlays is going to be a nightmare so I guess I could live with the dots if I got the 1527 neck. Unless I can get a different prestige neck. Or any ideas how to put different inlays on? Sorry, just really stoked about this build!
