I have never had the ibanez's but I did try PRS's and they did not work out
for me. I had the baja tele which has a v neck and found that one I was
really slow to play on.
So far the c necks on fender american series over the years have been the
best necks I have ever played at least for my playing.

The ibanez suggestion may be a good one. You get a full bucker sound
when you want, and the necks are super comfy. I added one to the
fleet, You can go high end really cheaply with these. Example, I was
after a white JEM. Played an RG350DX, basically a JEM without the
monkey grip or vine inlay, added Duncans and voila, a killer axe. for
They had a black ibanez I looked at this week that had looked at but it had active pickups which I have never been into so I never tired it. I will be at the store today so I will check out the ibanez necks when I am there.
