Neck Thickness

Other than J'Customs, which other RG Prestiges have the thicker necks? I'm GASsing for an RG, but don't want the wafer-thin neck. Something like a JC would be nice, but perhaps with less bling.

Re: Neck Thickness

The 1570s aren't the SUPER wizard necks. They are 1mm thicker. I think it gives it a more traditional feel, while still feeling fast.

Re: Neck Thickness

Try ultra necks.
Available on some prestige models.

Re: Neck Thickness

I know it is not an RG, but JS have the biggest necks I've played on Ibanez guitars.

Re: Neck Thickness

I've heard that you can put Fender-pocket necks on the old tilt heel RGs. Haven't done it myself though. Warmoth makes them with the 24 fret overhang too, so you could really get one as beefy as you want that way.
