Neck advice needed

Hope you can help me out here, need some advice about maybe getting a new neck for my RG520.

Thing is, I've fallen out with the wizard neck on my RG520 as I've been mainly playing a Roadhouse strat and Fernandes Ravelle, along with an Ibanez SZ520FM. These necks just feel more comfortable to me than the ultra-thin wizard. So my options are sell the RG520, which would be a shame 'cos it's a great sounding guitar, or buy a new neck for it.

Could someone suggest an Ibanez neck of similar quality, with a profile more like you get on say a Jackson?

Thanks in advance

Re: Neck advice needed

The Wizard II and Ultra necks are a bit chunkier, yet they retain that shred feel about them.

Re: Neck advice needed

Which one is the RG548, I don't know that. Any details?

EDIT: I've just seen your thread. I would be *VERY* seriously interested in that but I need to sell my RG520 first.
