Edwards Neck Dimensions? Help! Thin-U neck? extra thin-U? ?!

Post by FACTORY » Tue Jul 27, 2010 12:03 pm

I can't find any information on the Edwards/ESP Japan website or any where else about Edwards Neck Dimensions!

I need to know the exact Neck Dimensions of the EDWARDS > E-CY-145E & the EDWARDS > E-CY-165CTM

Do these Models have ESP regular U-necks? ESP Thin-U necks or ESP extra Thin-U necks?!

Any information on this subject would be much appreciated and much needed (I'm not the only one that wants to know).

If any one out there knows the exact neck dimensions of any and all ESP/ Edwards Models Please post them!

Thanks

-Brad

Enquire with the Japanese sellers you intend buying from to confirm dimensions of their stock

I have asked, they don't even have that information unfortunately. They really should put the neck profiles on their site.

Example:

Regular U
Thin-U
Extra Thin-U

I can't make an order if I don't know what I'm getting into as far as the Neck Profile goes..

Any help would be Amazing.

Thanks again

We are unable to ship to Canada or the US. All ESP neck specs are published, buy one of those instead.

I have the ESP List of neck dimensions for 2009. I'm basically looking for a List of Edwards Neck profiles. If no such list exists then maybe we can be the ones that make it.

Any and all help is welcomed guys.

Your in Tokyo right?

Could you do me a huge favor and possibly call a guitar store or two and ask what kind of neck profile the ESP EDWARDS E-CY-145E has?

I can't seem to get a straight answer about its neck profile any where for some reason, its starting to drive me nuts a bit, lol.

I would be forever grateful.

Who are you intending to buy it from? Ask them, and ask them with the explanation you intend buying from them. If they are not a dealer then find a dealer who will sell to you and ask them and buy from them. The ESP neck specs chart is from ESP, ESP is exported, Edwards has a very limited export so things are really only conveyed to dealers domestically. If you're intending to buy from an eBay non-dealer don't yank the chain of a Japanese dealer asking for info

It does because ESP and their dealers are not in the business of helping out third party sellers after Japan who can't get their own information. If you're willing to give some non-dealer in Japan your money isn't it them who should be able to answer your questions?

I may or may not even buy the guitar, I just want to know its neck profile so I can figure out if I want it or not.

I just want a simple straight answer about the E-CY-145E's ESP spec-ed neck profile. Its as simple as that. Information is not a crime.. period

Calling a shop wont help as I dont speak Japanese well enough.

And you realize this is an old model out of production right? There wont be many shops carrying this guitar new.

I think you might be forgetting the fact that these guitars are not the same as ESP guitars, so their neck profiles wont automatically be copied from an ESP guitar spec. And from my understanding every guitar will be different.

The neck is thin, not super thin but not fat.

If you want an ESP spec neck, you will have to buy an ESP.
