Re: I"m Lost!!!! HELP!!!!!
I'd say that the general dislike of the Wizard II is that most of them are not Japanese (I think some are, but I'm sure someone else knows more about that than me). To me the Korean stuff has been very hit or miss on the necks, some have been decent, some stinkers, but I've never had a problem with a Japanese neck. Personally, I disagree with the bubinga being necessary for strength, since I've had a few of my wizards for 15 to 20 years and never had a warping problem with them. That's not to say that none of them warp, but not having bubinga doesn't make it bad. Actually, the only Wiz neck I've ever had issues with (a bad back bow) actually had the bubinga stripe - doesn't make it bad, just means I stored it wrong.
So, me personally, I'd say just find yourself a Japanese AANJ neck, be it from a 550, 570, 520, or even a Jap 470 and you'll be good. If you can find something more "exotic" like a Prestige, Jem, PGM, etc, then more power to you!
Oh, and I'll add to everyone else saying Edge or LoPro is the way to go for a trem.
