Thick Neck Option
 
Hi there,

For years i love ibanez guitars. Now, actually, i'm more into vintage guitars. I still love the appearance of the classic ibanez RGs, S series etc. BUT i can't stand paper thin necks. It is way too difficult for me to comfort with them.

I really like to see ibanez guitars with "wizard neck" and "thick neck" options so that players can choose.

have you tried 'ultra' necks ?

Have you played any of the SZ series? The feel is between a LP and PRS. Definitely nothing like a wizard neck.

Yep. But personally i like thicker necks. You know, boatnecks or baseball bats :) One inch chunks :)

SZs were pretty well. But i haven't seen and RG or S with that neck profile and that's the problem, imo.

I agree, what I would like is a 24 fret mahogany RG with the Ritchie Blackmore neck, included graduated scalloped fingerboard, 41mm nut and C shape thickness 430mm radius though. Well, it would probably only be me. Gotta find a luthier.

Return to using the 2 piece scarf neck joints- hate the feel of the 5 piece necks being made currently

JS has very fine neck profile but still not close to "baseball bat" necks of Les Pauls.

We should also remind the Viper necks of 90s...

I think Viper and Ultra are the same thing. And yes I like that neck a lot more, have it on my JPM-p2.

Couldn't agree more. I scalloped a JPM neck, and it's my favorite neck.

Yes, the good old JPM necks were cool, too.

Re: Neck Options
 
I still would like to see thicker necks.
