What neck comes with the YAS-875EX: G1, G3, or V1? Also, what are the differences between the necks?

-Thanks

The V1 is the new stock neck for the EX, as of a few months ago.
Can't speak to the technical differences, but the V1 is an incredible neck.

If I remember correctly, the V1 neck's octave pip is closer to the mouthpiece, and is smaller in diameter than that of the G1. That is the only difference I was able to see when comparing the two of them.

I've had mine for 4 years now and it has a G3 I haven't experimented much with other necks so I can't tell you much about it. As far as I know though the V1 is only on alto models.

interestingly enough yamaha for some reason decided to make the custom G1 necks handmade but only offer them on the 875Ex and 875EXW models any other new yamaha horn other than those two will come with a factory produced G1 neck. also the V1 neck is almost identical the 875EX handmade G1 IMHO they dont paly any differently.
