The neck on Ibanez RG5** - The Wizard Neck....

Im wondering about the neck, is it good for people with small or big hands???
My hands are extremely small, would the Jumbo frets or the thin neck make it hard to play for me??
I may be buying a used RG550EX(SD) this week. I have tried one with the same neck but that was for about 2 minutes, it felt fine but since my hands are extremely small (as I said) will it be hard to play??

The neck on Ibanez RG5**

You know, it depends a lot. Wizard necks are very thin (it makes them VERY fast) and have a 43mm Nut Width. Nut Width is is the distance across the top of the fretboard. This also determines the space between individual strings. It makes a lot of difference on the neck. Big hands are more relaxed on a roomy board. Little hands could get lost on a big wide board. If your hands are too small for the necks NW, it equates to quicker hand fatigue. I hope this helps. By the way, nice choice. I find the black RG550EX the most beautiful RG.
