searchbarred. didnt find

i tend to see 5pc on ibanez prestiges, as opposed to 3 (i think) on the lower models.
i was wondering what the advantage of great numbers of neck pieces was.
Pedal GAS?

ISP Dec of some sort

my guess is sustain, i read before that bolt ons have MORE sustain, so i figure the more pieces the better?

Are you sure? I always thought set necks had more sustain than bolt-ons...

Probably the neck is simply more stable and less prone to warp and stuff. If you have only one piece of wood and it happen to be faulty then you're screwed. If you have 3/5 pieces and only one of them is kinda faulty then nothing really happens.

any differences in tone?

because the prestige wizard 2 and jem necks are so thin it needs the extra pieces to give the neck stability and all ibby necks are not 3/5 pieces in fact the majority of them are 1 piece (js neck).

the wood is normally different so instead of having a all maple neck you`ll have pieces of walnut or wenge added.
