Ibanez SZ neck profile?

I'm trying to find info on the neck profile of the 2003 to 2008 SZ guitars. They are a set neck and the specs just mention the wood type and layers... no mention of the profile as in "Wizard II" or whatever.

Anyone have one that they could compare to another guitar or measure? I heard that they have a nice fat neck like i am looking for, but I can't seem to find any particular info or one to try locally.

Thanks!!!

Well the specs say the SZ necks are relatively the same width at the nut and last fret as the wizard and the thickness ate the first and 12th frets are only a couple of mm thicker.

Thanks!! I was wondering about the thickness mainly. I'm finding that the thin Wizard neck is making my left hand get fatigued, especially when playing rhythm for a long time. Thinking about trying an SZ or Artist, since they have thicker necks. I don't know exactly how much thicker they are... but a couple mm can make a pretty big difference. Might be worth a try anyway, as thicker necks seem to feel more comfortable with my long fingers.

I found the neck specs here:

http://ibanez.wikia.com/wiki/List_of_neck_types

A few mm thicker and quite different radius than the Super Wizard on my 520... +4mm at the 1st fret and +3mm at the 12th is pretty significant though. I need to find one locally to play. I doubt if the 25.1" scale feels any different though.

Thanks for the help!
