Ok. Due to living up here in Eastern Canada, theres no sign of any Carvin LB76's around for me to try out. I own a BB75 and B5 (and had a LB75) so least in 5 string terms, I know I love Carvin quality over ibanez. (not to mention 3 guitars) But 6 strings, My hands are somewhat small as it is, but more importantly, I LOVED the feel of the Ibanez SR506 which I played at a store. Unfortunately, I find them extremely ugly, uncomfortable, stale sounding and hate bolt ons, which is why I want all the things the LB76 can offer me. Anyways, all that besides the point, I looked up neck sizes.. and was shocked to find.. Could the Carvin neck actually be SMALLER than the Ibanez one? Both 34" scale Ibanez width at nut = 54mm Carvin width at nut = 51mm Ibanez width at 24th = 83mm Carvin width at 24th = 81mm I dunno the thickness of the necks size, but if the LB76 is like the BB75/B5/LB75, it should be just perfect. Weird?? Who would of thought the Ibanez neck is LARGER than the Carvin neck. That is really odd. I did play a XB76 afew years ago but it felt massive. hmm.
