I just purchased the 706 and i'm wondering what is the diffrences between that model and the older 506? I was looking on ibanez.com and the specs were almost identical i can't even find a difference other than the finish... Does anyone know?

Okay guys, I have a confession to make. Not really a confession since it's something that's been bugging me for awhile but I've always been in denial about it.

**** you gilly, it's not what you think

I believe the 706 is neck through and the 506 is not? Can anyone confirm this?

Both are bolt-on, but they have a tone block in the center which is what might make you think they're NT. The 706 has a figured maple top, which is pretty much the only difference as far as I know.

The 506 has a wenge/bubinga 5 piece neck, whilst the 706 is jatoba/bubinga 5 piece neck.


are you sure? I was almost 100% that they were both Jatoba.

Wouldn't wenge be better than jatoba so be in the higher end model if it was in either?

I could have sworn they were wenge, but the ibanez site says differently

yeah it didn't look like wenge when I tried one

I recently tried an sr5000 (the prestige model). That had a wenge neck and body and played amazingly
