any reviews on the S5470?

so far the only S i've tried was the S2170 and I couldn't get used to the fat necks. Is the new S prestige's Super wizard neck II much better than these? I'm real keen on trying these out.

Re: any reviews on the S5470?

Not sure if this is what you're talking about, but I own an S5470SOL and the neck is very fast and comfortable. I tried a bunch of S2170's before getting the S5470 and couldn't be happier...

Overall build quality was excellent as well, had mine for around 2 years now and had zero issues with it.

Re: any reviews on the S5470?

having both a S5470 and a mid-90s S540, i'd say the S5470's neck is pretty similar to the S540's Wizard neck - up to the 12th fret. The 24fret S neck does feel like a modern RG Prestige neck imho.
S2170 necks are definitely 'fatter' from the ones i've checked out in the past.

Trickae,
have a s5470rdo you won't be disappointed probably the only thing that lets it down personally is pickups but the guitar is very versatile and comfortable to play and extremely reliable no problems 14 months on
