I've recently been looking at an ESP LTD MH1000D
http://www.zzounds.com/item--ESPMH1000D
I want to now how approximately thin the thin U necks are because i have been unable to find the "specs" all i get is "thin U-neck contour".
So far i've really liked the Ibanez Wizard-II.
And if all possible, anyone know how this MH would stand next to the Xiphos XPT700FX (without trem)?

Replies are appreciated.

Yeah i think my M-1000 has the same neck, thin, but not AS thin as a Wizard II.

I find them to be very thin and flat, though I haven't played that model. The one I did play was uncomfortable though.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Like when you say not as thin, do you mean like its not really a big difference?
Thanks for the fast replies guys

Its like a mix between the newer fender neck contours and an ibanez wizard. In other words, a thinner fender neck. ESP makes probably my favorite neck contours.

That's a pretty good discription, they have the flatter radius and are thinner than some more traditional profiles but have enough width so it doesn't feel like a toothpick (as many ibanezs do to me with my big Sasquatch hands)

i actually have one of these in the dark brown color and the neck isnt as thin as the wizard II but it is definitely thin enough if u want to shred lol...but yea i also have a jackson with a super thin neck and i prefer my esp's neck because it just fits better in the hands.......well theres my 2 cents...

Awesome thanks for everybody's input
Now that i think about it when i play my Rg7321 i know what you mean, One last question how are the over size frets? and how easy would you say they are accesible, it wouldn't really be a problem but i just want to have a basic idea.
#12
by accessible i take it you mean the high frets? lol well anyways they are very accessible because of the "set thru" neck which looks exactly like a neck thru but i read on wikipedia that it has all of the advantages of a bolt on, set in, and neck thru guitar or something like that...

ESP LTD's have really nice necks. my M-302 has the second best neck i ever played. my ibanez wiz II is slightly thinner but the contour is horrible it is almost flat at the center and then curves sharply to the fingerboard. the only way i can describe it as a square neck with the edges slightly curved. very uncomfterable. Jacksons have the thinnest and most comfterable neck, like taking the thinness of the wiz II and mixing it with the LTD contour(Jackson = best of both worlds.) hope this helps

Musicians friend does installment buying. I think that's what it's called.

I don't know if they have that model though. I would try and play one in a store first.
