    Question JP6 vs Majesty neck profiles: how do they compare?

    I've owned the original JP6 and also a JP6 BFR in the past. The neck profiles are the same, and I know it really well.

    Now I'm considering a Majesty, but there's no one close to the city I live. I'd love to have one in my hands, but it's not possible.

    So, for those of you who have experience with both... how would you compare the neck profiles?

    I've read the specs, I'm more interested in how your hand felt them.

    Slightly thicker. Not something to put you off.

    Hi Vadauco,
    The neck profiles at the nut are the same and at the heal are 0.011" wider on the Majesty before sanding. The neck is also 0.030" thinner at the neck joint.

    I've read that it's slightly thicker, thanks for confirming this.

    By looking at pictures, judging by the string spacing at the last frets, I always had the impression that Majesty heel was wider... thanks for confirming this. To me it's a very welcomed change, since the strings were too close to the edge of the fretboard in the JP6 neck. Thank you.
