Mind that thickness isn't the complete answer to whatever the question is
U, C, modern C, V (and possibly more I forgot) shapes has a big impact to how the neck will feel smile.gif

The neck width is listed in every specs-sheet i came across so far and I think it is pretty much identical to ibanez rg/ jem-necks.
The neck thickness, however, is not listed in any specs sheet that I have seen.

How is the neck compared to an ibanez wizard-neck (17-18mm at 1st fret and 19-20mm at 12th fret)? Can you tell a diffrence?

My impression was the the Petrucci neck was rounder than a wizard neck, and not as wide. It`s a tiny bit thicker, but most people would still call it very thin. As Daniel said, it`s overall an small guitar. I had the chance to play one at a larger guitar store when visiting Oslo for some months ago, but I got so frustrated while trying to tweak an amp I never touched before that I didn`t feel comfortable with my sound. And when I don`t like my sound, that has a direct effect on my playing, leaving me behind with no proper impression of the guitar dry.gif

QUOTE
Unlike the thin Wizard neck on John’s former line of signature guitars from Ibanez, the Music Man JP6 has a slightly thicker (but still quite thin overall), round c-shaped neck that feels more like a vintage Stratocaster
