Since Ive finally gotten myself sorted for six strings, im now looking back into getting a 7 again. When I think of what my dream 7 is, my gold standard would have to be the 1077xl. So anytime I look at or judge a 7, i always compare to it what always felt best to me. But once the DCM100 came out, it seemed like almost everything I ever wanted was put into one guitar (minus it being an RGA with a figured maple top, but I at least get Mahogany) but there are some significant differences between the two models. I was hoping someone on here has had experience with both of these guitars to help out with a comparison of the two. The most important differences I note are the neck width (the XL was 48mm X 66mm, 19mm 21mm; the DCM was 48mm X 68mm, 19mm 21mm) but I dont know how significant that 2mm is in regards to the neck feel as a whole. They have the same radius 430mm which is perfect, and they both have the Edge LoPro, so the main difference is the reverse headstock, the shorter scale on the DCM, and the slighter wider neck. Im not worried about the difference in tone because if I were to go with the XL option, i would get a replacement body made of mahogany for it. My main concern is comparing the feel of their necks. Not to mention, its extremely easy to get my hands on a DCM but Ive gotta be patient for a XL to pop up on the verb. Im also not so concerned about the shorter scale of the DCM, because the lowest i ever tune is A standard, so having either 26.5 or 27, it doesnt make a significant difference IMO. I assumed that the DCM neck would be identical to the RGD2127Z so Ive been to every Guitar Center and Sam Ash in San Diego and Los Angeles, CA but none of them had an RGD in stock for me to try. Anyone with experience with the two, your guidance would be appreciated.
