Exclamation J-Custom neck vs. Super Wizard neck???

Good day, All.

Iím in the process of purchasing a new Ibanez J-Custom (if possible) to replace my worn out í91 Jem77FP. The 2009 J-Customs have 1 of 2 neck profiles: Either the Super Wizard or the J-Custom neck profile. The RG8420ZD and RG 8420ZE both have the Super Wizard profile and The RG8570Z (which Iím after) has the j.custom neck profile. I am familiar with the SW profile and dimensions, but does anyone know what the jc dimensions are?? Anyone know what the similarities and differences between the two profiles are? Iíve been looking all over to find a diagram for the jc neck profile/dimensions with no luck thus far.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!!!

It's still a super wizard on the RG8570Z.
I'm assuming the name change for 2010 would be probably more to do with the J custom fret work or possibly the newer 'Asymmetric Super Wizard' Neck Shape.
Either way it's [email protected] fret and [email protected] the 12th fret.

As far as I know there is totally no difference in neckdimensions between the 2009 and 2010 J-custom models?

Thanx!

I've purchased the two 2010 j-customs I was after about a month ago. Their necks are brilliant -whatever their specs! !
