Question RG 570 necks: Wizard or Wizard II

I'm looking to buy an RG 570 and I want one with a wizard neck. I have read thru many of the articles here but I can not seem to piece together a list of which years of the RG 570 would have the Wizard neck. I've come across a couple from 1998 and 1999 but they both have the Wizard II neck.
I would also prefer the AANJ.
Are there any RG 570's that have both the AANJ and the original Wizard neck? And if so, what years would these be from. I'm new to Ibanez guitars; there are a LOT of different models to learn about...
Many thanks. Barry

All RG570's have Wizard profile necks. The later AANJ models have Super Wizards, which are the same profile as original Wizards, but have the wide bubinga stripe on the back. Any 1994-2002 RG570 will have AANJ and a Wizard profile neck. --Jason

Do any of the RG 570's come with the Wizard II neck?

I've not heard/seen of one. The wizard II is mostly used on non MIJ models, whereas the RG5XX is japanese made.

According to the specs on one of the other pages on this site, the Super Wizard is the same dimensions as the original Wizard.
Did the RG 570 ever come with the Super Wizard neck?
If I were looking for an RGxxxx with the Super Wizard neck, would I be looking for an RG 570 or by that point had they changed the name to RG 1570?

The later, 1994-2002 RG570's all have AANJ and Super Wizard necks. The Super Wizard is easy to spot because of the wide, dark brown, bubinga stripe running down the back of the neck. You can also find the Super Wizard on the RG550's (maple fingerboard), and RG520's from that same era. --Jason

The 1995 RG570CT's had a Wizard II, that's the only one I know of without the Wizard/Super Wizard profile.
