I hear a major difference on square heel vs. AANJ guitars. I like them both, but I definitely prefer square heel on my 7 strings.

I never have any difficulty with the block neck joint. For one I do have big hands, but I learned how to play on a classical guitar(neck joins the body at the 12th fret) so I had to learn not to rely on my thumb being glued to the back of the neck. Also when I was younger I entertained the thought of "what would happen if I lost my thumb?" So I practiced occaisionally playing without my thumb on the back of the neck, soloing, chords, tapping, etc. So block heel neck joint has never been an problem for me.

I have no problem with either one, my 1570 has the aanj, 20th has the standard block. I guess it depends on hand and finger size.

I like them both but prefer the solid feel of the block joint however, the joint isn't a determining factor when picking out an Ibanez, just a bonus.
