Do I have a Wizard I or II neck? Radius needed.

Yeah, I feel like an idiot not knowing but....
Purchased around late 1991, RG570, made in Japan, no stripe in neck, dot inlays, purple ice color (Ibanez color that year, not custom by me), matching headstock, V1-S1-V2 pickup config, and the serial number is F143442. It is 100% an RG570, not the 1570 or anything like that, and 100% made in Japan.
Trying to figure it out because I am going to put stainless steel super jumbo fret wire in it and I need to know the radius. I believe for the Wizard I it is 400mm and the Wizard II is 430mm, if I remember correctly, I have it written down somewhere.
Also, it is in mint condition, what do you think that puppy is worth?
Thanks guys

It's an original Wizard neck. The fretboard radius is 430mm. --Jason

I thought the original Wizard I was 400mm.
How do you find this out anyway since the radius isn't listed in the 1991 or 1992 catalog. Just wondering. Thanks

All original wizards are 430mm and 17mm thickness at 1st fret and 20mm @ 12. Wizard 2 are 400/19/21.

Once you go stainless, you will never go back.
