Please help to define S 570 neck thickness

I have an Ibanez S370 from 2002, which has wizard II neck. I love it...not too thich and not too thin.

Now I'm about to get a new S for house, and I've been considering S 570 Black

But here's the strange thing. I tried S 570 BBB on local store and the neck felt thicker than my wizard II on S370.

Wizard II and III should be same measurement according to specs, but I swore the S570 I tried had thicker neck. In fact
it was too thick for my fingers.

Maybe that was because it has these side binding on it?`

Could someone owner of any S 570 (indonesian made in 2010-2012) measure the girth of the neck between lock nut and 1st fret, and also between 12th and 13th fret?

I would really appreciate it

Importer in my country (fin) doesnt have the S 570 black on their shop so I must order it from UK and wanna know how much bigger the neck is comprared to my S370 Wizard II

(I sent this to ibanez forum too, but there seems to be very little replies and users, hope you don't mind I ask here too)

Yeah I agree the Wizard II and Wizard III should be the same specs but people here have said they have a different profile/shoulders so that might explain why they feel different.

Actually I measured the width of my neck on last fret..and it's 56mm. I thought it was 58mm.

That explains a lot. All new Ibanez S guitars, even prestige models are 58mm on last fret.

I really don't understand Ibanez here. Why force all necks to be huge? I can't play them anymore...they feel like baseball bats.

Re: Please help to define S 570 neck thickness

well. I ordered the S570 and got it few weeks ago. The neck was thinner than S570 BBB so I guess the binding on BBB model makes it bigger. Wizard III on BK model was as thin as comfortable as my old S with Wizard II.

Now here comes the fun part. Indonesian boys had put one faulty screw base to ZR trem. The lower action height screw was so tight it would have eventually broken for sure. The upper screw base was normal...turning it was easy. But turning the lower one needed huge amount of force...not normal ! And by turning it you could easily feel there were something wrong with the screw base.

It's amazing how bad the quality control in indonesia is. I guess someone at factory should mention that check that screws actually turn normally to make sure the screw base is not faulty like in my case. I returned the guitar and got my money back.
