Re: NGD: J-Custom (sexy top :D )

Hey does anyone know what the full specs on this are by the way???

Obviously the neck is maple, body is mahogany with a maple top...but what about the pickups?

Anyone know?

Ah ok cool! Im not too educated about J-customs unfortunately. The J-customs i've tried feel thinner than the most recent UV model (mirror pickguard one) but thicker than early UVs. I think the J-custom is great for guys like me with some mild wrist issues that love the Ibanez vibe but want a slightly thicker neck.
Yeah those models are out there for sure. I know a lot of guys that
hate the really thin Wizard necks and dismiss RG's because of
this but if they were to play something with the older 'J Custom' profile
I think they would be pleasantly surprised.

There are tons of J Customs out there with thin Wizard/Super Wizard necks.
Then you do have some of the others with beefier necks like you say.
The J Custom RG1880 for instance has a much fatter neck than your
average Ibanez RG model,.

Not in a bad way though
