    Neck profiles

    Can anyone post pictures of the differences between an M-II bolt on neck and Vintage Plus neck?

    The M is listed as having a extra thin flat contour and the Vintage Plus as a thin U neck contour. Both are listed as being 42mm at the nut, but I cannot find what radius they both are.

    I'm particularly interested in seeing a picture of the back of a Vintage Plus neck too. Can someone describe the differences between the two contours?

      A pic won't do much good for you , but how I would describe them
      M-ii is like a cross between a Jackson sl2h and an ibanez RG . You can (or I can at least) tell that the back is flat . But it isn't "square" like an ibanez
      And the vintage plus is just like a strat , might be a little thiner, but not much.
      Both feel pretty good .

      Thanks - that helps! Slightly thinner than a standard strat would be ideal - I need to get out there and check the Vintage out. So the Vintage isn't flat at the back :-)

      yea exactly the m2 is kind of like a jackson neck but faster imo

      and the vintage neck is like a strat but it seems to be more "modern" shaped and faster

      esp makes fast guitars

      The vintage Plus is 42 mm ( 1-5/8") the MII is 43 mm (1-11/16") with a 42 MM nut. The neck is wider on the MII

      I'm due to try a Vintage Plus later this week - if the neck is slightly thinner than a Strat but is much faster, then hopefully I will have found a replacement for my Standard Strat. The next thing would be to decide if I get the Vintage routed for HSS.
