So, I guess I'll ask the question, is there something wrong with the current neck you have? Does your horn play (reasonably) in tune? Do you get the sound you like? I only say this because you can waste a lot of time and money on a quest for something that's not really obtainable.
your question is just in time
I just started to check the question around a neck upgrade... called local store they have V1 for $395 (Canadian) and there is no prob for coming and try it.
From what I read here in the thread related to new Yamaha necks and mikelaroche that provided the info about my current neck, few answers are definitely stating that V1 would/should be a real jump from the original one.
Nothing wrong with my current, so I guess that's really worth to try... it's like one may be fully satisfied with Toyota but after trying BMW may rediscover the car's world.
Probably, it is exaggeration
and the price proportion is not the same... But V1 price will not break my bank, especially if there will be a real something for the money.
I am not going crazy in research of improving my humble playing by means of equipment (the best here will be proper work on overtones
and other stuff that requires personal efforts, I guess...)
But after all collected info on the forum I'll probably will give a try (cost nothing).
Also, the guys in the store will do all necessary for adjusting the neck in case I will go for it.
Thanks for your opinion.
