This doesn't apply to just jems, uv's but I was wondering which neck you think is the flattest?
There is lots of talk of which neck is the thinnest, but which one is the flattest, as flat as an ironed pancake.
See that means nothing to me lol.
I checked the specs on here and all i can tell is the jem/uv radius is 430mm and the js 240mm.
How this related to the flatness I'm a little unsure of.
Oh and the Viper (jpm) neck is 305mm.
Realy? That's bizarre, could someone explain how that works?
In that case 430mm (jem, uv) is the flattest Ibanez do.
Now I'm confused because it was previously mentioned that vigier do 0 radius necks, making them the flattest.
Sorry I'm not to in touch with technical aspects, I just know what I like
OK, heres my understanding of it, please excuse the huge pic..oh, and this is so not to scale or anything...oh, and compound means it changes shape, so it could be flatter at the nut and gradually get rounder to the 24th fret, or something like that..0 Radius simply means no radius, because a circle with a radius of 0 means the circle does not exist.
This helps narrow the choice of my next guitar a ton! I love flat necks
Seems that the Jems 430mm radius (16.93 inches) is flatter than the ernie ball jp6 radius of 15 inches, another guitar I was considering buying.
All I need now is for Ibanez to bring back ebony fingerboards and I'll be in heaven.
