    Naw. Just wont purchase. It's not a matter of not being able able to, it's a matter of it being super uncomfortable with no benefit for its existence. It's funny... All this talk of neck profiles and how thin the necks are and they are held on by a damn brick a quarter the way up the neck. Heh

    I wonder how many of the Ibby square heel haters have actually owned a model with one. I would guess the percentage is low. It's funny they were originally the improvement over the Fender one which is still on tons of models today but seems to garner less hate.

    Fender needs to modern up too:D fender are expected to never change, locked in by the bluesers. Dat AANJ was a massive step in the right direction

    I love the AANJ, block heel is just cooler.

    my '91 RG570 with the slanted block heel has about as much fret access as my RG7620's with the aanj. Shit, people play universes with block heels just fine as well.. but Vai certainly never plays above the 12th fret :lol:

    If you don't like the heel, why even comment? No one cares about your opinions. This is the internet. No one cares abotu this comment either

    Square heel vs AANJ is SSO canon. It's only right for us to discuss it once again.

    I have a Strat and an AANJ. I don’t really give a shit either way, but I’m guessing that people who don’t like block heels won’t buy block heels.

    All personal preference. Even THAT can change with time and experience with the instrument. Ask anyone who plays a Les Paul how their upper fret access is. As long as the instrument inspires you to play more or in a different manner, that’s what matters.

    Isn't this forum founded on bitching and voicing opinions no one cares about? Imagine how dead it would be otherwise. Heh

    The first & only guitar I have with a tilt joint is my RG550 reissue. In my personal experience I find that I don't really think about it or notice a difference too much while playing it, (unless I'm in frets 21-24) Muscle memory kicks in and my hand kinda just does what it's supposed to do lol. Like going between a 7 and a 6 string.

    I'd love to get a 7 with a tilt joint and see what that's like. Hopefully a universe one day, or if not maybe the last Munky sig or something lol.

    Fair point. My point however, is that the upper fret access on a 6 string block heel is comparable to a 7 string aanj, and that there are block heel 7 strings out there that people play just fine, and play many frets above the 12th.

    That's all.

    Huh? The AANJ predates his association with Ibanez and wasn't added to JEMs or UVs till years later.
