Isn't it just normal wizard neck? Like a RG550/RG570 etc.

the 3120 has no bubinga stripe, all maple, and it has the volute instead of the scarfjoint... its the Prestige neck, still, i think the neck profile should be the same...

now i dunno if its cause of the smoother feel, or the volute, but i always thought the 3120 felt "chunkier" than my 570... somewhere between the 570 and the JPM...

The neck on my 3120 definitely feels a little thicker to me than the wizard on my S540, RG470, 570, and 520QS's. It's more like a wizard II, but I don't think it feels quite the same as that either, but I have less experience with the wizard II, so, hard to say. I think it's somewhere betweeen a wizard II and a wizard. It does have the volute.

Edit: yeah, "chunkier" is a good way to describe it.

If the 3120 neck turns out to have the same dimensions as the wizard and that chunkiness I'm perceiving is purely psychological, I would be very surprised. Interested, but surprised.

Yeah, I dont think its just you - the 3120 I played defenitely felt like it had the slightly more thicker neck than an RG570 or RG550. I thought the 3120 had similar to a JEM neck profile? It might just be me though.

fwiw the 3120 neck is a perfaect fit for me-It does seem slightly thicker than my RG570. Just by a hair.

Little ski jump on back of neck close to top of neck and close to 1st fret. Adds considerable strength to neck.
