Does a JTV 69S Black with maple neck have a different neck than a JTV 69?
by musicsingle on 2013-02-04 17:30:02

I red somewhere that the JTV 69S maple neck was a different neck [as in smaller frets and a different profile] than on a regular  SSH 69.    Would anyone have an answer for this?   I have a JTV 69 and a JTV 59 and I was wanting to know if the 69S was more of a Fender profile.

Thanks

I don't believe that's true. I think they both have the same neck profile (12" radius) , and they both have medium-jumbo frets.

I have the JTV69US with a maple neck, and I don't believe it's profile is any different than the rosewood versions of the Korean models I've played. I can't imagine they would go to a different neck profile for the 69S.

The profile and specs are all the same it will simply come with a maple fretboard as opposed to a rosewood one.
