HP necks?

I've seen that on many Prestige guitars, they have added the HP designation to the necks. For example, instead of Wizard Prestige, it is now Wizard Prestige HP.
What does this mean?

Re: HP necks?

It means High Performance. It seems they've added it to the necks that have a 430mm radius. Notice that a non-HP Wizard neck has a 400mm radius as on the new Premiums.

Re: HP necks?

Hmm... so it was just a renaming to make it easier to not confuse it with the new Premiums?
I don't blame them. After all, christening the Premiums' necks "Wizard 0.5" wouldn't be generating much sales...
