Here's my '06, it's the best Wizard II neck from indonesia that I have played on so far, my '99 S470BOL from Japan has a Wizard II neck but it's thinner and the radius is a little flatter but different years and factories so I don't judge to harshly...I love it and it's my #2 until my '91 RG560CA is done being modded, then it will be my #3. I have DiMarzio Evolutions in the bridge and neck and a Virtual Vintage Heavy Blues in the middle position...

I got one defiantly switched out for PAF(N)/EVO

Only thing people say is that the knife edges wear out faster than other bridges (when you compare ones that last 20 years.) But I was going to make my own guitar with a OFR, never came about. Still got the OFR for when the edge III wears out. The cosmo finish comes off kind of easy also. I do feel the difference between the orginal wizard and the neck on it: does it really affect me? no.

Next to my 550:

I've got one and love it. It's been a while since I played it, but I definitely like it. I put evos in mine. The only thing I don't care for is the bridge. Not that it's bad. I just like the original trem where you can get the warble. The trem on these are tight and don't warble hardly at all. Some people would see that as a plus, so it's just a personal preference thing.

The cosmo finish on them does wear off. Other than that it's a great guitar. I've got no problems with the neck either.
