That is a neck from a japanese rg470.
It is a wizard 2 but will fit the wizard slots.
99 and up japanese rg,s had these necks.
It is a great neck and is closer to the real jem necks.
it is usually measure 56 mm.

I was suspecting it was a Fugigen RG470 neck but the 550 stamp was a mystery. One more bit of information added to my education in the science of identifying Ibanez guitars and parts. Thanks

Re: 2000 RG550 neck?

Got a question about these wizard 2 necks:

Did they start using 3 pc necks on 2001 models?
I got one on a 2001 RG450DX and its a 3 pc maple with
the rosewood board(No bubinga)
just curious.....GREAT neck tho
