That's the problem. The specs for the "UV Prestige" neck are identical to my '06 Ultra Prestige neck... as well as identical to dozens of other necks listed on the Ibanez Wiki List of Neck Types. However, I've also heard that the UV Prestige necks have their own unique feel/profile. Same issue there: unique compared to what?

So, those basic measurements aren't enough. That's why I was hoping someone had hands-on experience. Obviously, I wish I could play a K7. That would negate the need for this post in the first place.

The challenge I have is trying to decide whether I'd like the neck on a K7 without actually being able to play one first. I've played RG's, I've played Lo Pro Edge's, but the neck is the big unknown.

Questions: K7 vs. Ultra Prestige Neck

First, background...

I currently own several 7-string Ibby's, each with a slightly different neck. Of them, my absolute favorite is the Ultra Prestige 7 neck on my '06 RG1527RB. My second fav is the Wizard-7 Prestige neck on my '11 RG1527M

Now that we've established that...

I think I'd like to buy a used 2005 or 2006 K7 in decent shape. However, I've heard the necks on these described as "fatter", "beefier", etc. Well, that doesn't help me a whole hell of a lot. Fatter than WHAT? So I looked at the various neck specs on the Ibanez Wiki's List of Neck Types.

No help there either, because the dimensions for the '05 - '06 K7 neck LOOK identical to my '06 Ultra Prestige neck dimensions.

So, can someone set me straight? How different is a '05 - '06 K7 neck from my beloved '06 Ultra Prestige neck? I'll admit, I'm a bit OCD about my neck profile, so a dramatic difference will be a deal killer for me.

Thanks in advance...
