hi there!

i've heard a lot of good stuff about Charvel necks and i was wondering if anybody here played one of the newer MIJ models and could tell a little about it (looking at the Wildcard 5 MCB). How are they compared to standart MIA Fender Strats? I'm playing an Ibanez Prestige atm and was looking at something a little "thicker" but not too thick and im really curious about that "compound radius" thing.

The neck and heel of a Charvel will not fit the neck joint of an Ibanez. Different shape/bolt pattern.

ah i see... hmmm too bad i guess :C would have been nice to be able to switch out necks...

but how are they in general? i seem to be unable to find a spec sheet telling me how thick the neck is at the nut/end.

this is about compound radius, no easier way to understand it.
as for spec sheet, charvel website gots it man. looky looky http://charvel.com/pdf/promods/Charvel-WildCard.pdf

that said, i have myself a '09 production san dimas and played a pro mod san dimas and couldn't feel a difference in the neck. both are just really nice and i absolutely hate neck that are thin. for example i can't play an ibanez RG doesn't feel right to me.
