Re: When did they start putting the 5 piece neck into jems

well some 5piece are actually 6 or 7 if you count the headstock, and then there is the fretboard.

a real one-piece neck is impossible, even an old fender tele, with fretboard and headstock in one, uses a route for the truss-rod and a 'skunk stripe' to close it up.

Having said that the Jem neck is listed as 5piece maple-walnut, but in reality it is three pieces of maple with two tiny slivers of walnut:

The DNA, DBK and HAM were already three piece, but that was maple-bubinga-maple:


I don't know exactly when the switch occurred for the VWH, but the 2005 brochure lists a 3piece neck.

also have a look at this thread:

No, they were 2 pieces til last year. Though some argue it was only 1 piece and that the headstock doesn't count. whatever.

Last year the went to the 5 piece neck. It's supposed to be stronger and more stable.
