RG470FM neck swap

What would you guys say to a swap from the original wizard II to a Super Wizard Swap from a 02 RG570ex model.
More pictures of the neck.

Re: RG470FM neck swap

Looks like you have a Japan spec 470 with Edge Pro. The Wizard II from Japan isn't too different from the Wizard. Same sort of shape, 1-2mm difference in thickness. You might not even notice any difference.

Re: RG470FM neck swap

Yea. When i was comparing the MIJ wizard II neck shape to the Korean one, I could swear that it is thinner, Although measuring it with a vernier caliper tells a diff story. The Super Wizard really is 17mm at first fret tho. amazing.
