i currently have a jem555bk and i was considering purchasing a jem7vwh despite the fact i'm not very good at guitar (but ... i really like guitars you know, plus i make the money so why not eh)

anyway i thought the jem7vwh neck was a bit thick and i did not like it nearly as much as the neck on my jem555... thats the only thing about it i wasnt happy with...

whys the jem 7vwh neck thicker? i dont like it :( perhaps ill put the 555 neck on the vwh when/if i get it (despite the ugly inlay, but oh well)

whats the deal? are the necks on the 7vwh thicker now or something?

the 555 is a wisard which is the thinnest neck that ibanez make...FLo ( one of steve's main guitar's) has a 555 neck on it..yeah.it's more a taste thing with necks..

darn...

i never noticed that, it seems to have the full vine inlay though??

if the 7vwh is not a wizard than what is it? the one im looking at is undoubtedly a newer model, this years probably

what is the neck and did the 7vwh's ever have different necks? (wizards perhaps)

because i think the thin necks are great, feels good on my wrist

I personally prefere thicker necks. It's better for bendings and all that stuff and my hand feels more confortable with them.

The time I have spent with the Les Paul is certainly a factor ;)

I think that the VWH neck is just a Jem neck. The ones I have tried are thinner than my 77fp. I am really starting to like ibanez thicker necks.

seems odd that the 555 neck would be thinner than the 7vwh but whatever, there's an auction thats about to end on **** and i think im going to bid on it in hopes of getting my first jem :)!
