Ok, more on necks! Some people think the new prestige wizards are better and some peopel think the old rg/jem necks are better. So saying old I mean mybe... late 80s ones. So im wondering about playability, and i know its mostly opinion like always, esspecially for necks. But, I wanna know which feels more precise the new prestige, or new jem necks (made of many pieces of wood) or the older ones ussally a 1 piece, and more prone to warps. Which, is smoother and faster. I'd lovw to hear from you guys, before I go and try out some at the store, although i dont have an oportunity to try out an older model

Re: Necks

The new prestige necks definitely have better finish work. The frets are finished much better, and the last several prestige necks I have played / owned have been totally awesome. The 1570 necks feel almost the same as far as thickness, 2570 necks feel a bit thicker, but by no means are they thick necks. So, overall, I would say I like the overall finish quality of the Prestige necks, but the original Wizards are like putting on on old comfortable pair of jeans. LOL
