RG6CST? - specifically, the necks...

Anyone tried one of these? What do you think? I want to try the piezo thing, and I'm debating between hunting one of these down or just getting an RG2020. 

What will make the decision for me is the neck shape. Now Ibanez describes both necks on the US website as 'Wizard.' But it seems they call everyhing 'Wizard' on the US site...sort of like how they call both the VWH and DBK necks 'Jem' necks, when they're very different.

Looking at the Japanese site, they describe the RG2020 neck as 'Wizard', but the measurements shown in the picture are definitely not Wizard dimensions...they're closer to the JCM neck. 

Now does Ibanez really make different necks for the US and Japanese market, or are they just mislabeling things? I recall a post from the previous forum where someone said an S2020 he tried felt huge, but the specs said Wizard. I ask because I much prefer the fatter JCM neck over the Wizard, and if one of these 2 guitars has that kind of neck, my decision will be much easier. Thanks and sorry for the long post!

RG6CST?

FWIW, I've played both an RG2020x and S2020x. *Both are supposed to be wizards, but both were definitely chunkier than the standard thin wizard most of us are familiar with. *To complicate matters further, the RG neck seemed fatter than the S, while the S neck seemed to have more U curve to the back shape. *All "wizards" are apparently not created equal. *If it's fatter you want, then these are good options.

RG6CST?

I've got an RG6CST... the neck on it is unlike any other neck. It's slightly thicker than the PBC necks on USRG's and the Viper neck on the JPM, if you know what either of those feels like. It seems much thicker than the neck on an RG3120 or Jem DBK. The only thicker Ibanez neck I've found is on the RG1880.

That said, it's a killer neck. Very shreddable, due in part I'm sure to the ebony fingerboard. The guitar sustains for about a week and a half.
