Just thought I'd take the temperature on this issue. I still occasionally see folks hyping up shredder-type necks, and talking about "baseball bat" necks in a somewhat negative way, but seemingly less than I used to. And just paying attention to guitars being released lately, presumably if Ibanez's ultra wizard thing were really so desirable other companies would do it too? I ask because I just bought an RG6UCS, which is one I've semi-coveted for ages. This will be the first Ibanez/Floyd I've played since my first two electrics back in the 90s, a Charvel Model 4* followed by an RG470. Gratuitous pic: It's become more rare of late, and I hesitated in previous opportunities due to how thin the neck is. But one just came up on reverb, and, toward the end of a very long semester, I snagged it. The aftermaths have been swapped out, which presumably contributed to my getting a good deal, and I already have some Ragnaroks that need a new home. Plus it's currently loaded with DMZ X2N/Liquifire, which will be fun to try. How nervous should I be about the Ultra Wizard HP Prestige neck? 17/19mm is thinner than I've played in a long time, and my hands are both large and at this point chronically somewhat less than healthy. *The Charvel was super cheap back then; I now realize it was a sweet guitar but at the time I mostly couldn't wait to get rid of it because it was a very bold metallic pink and let's just say it was a different time re the color pink, at least where I grew up.
