Re: Super Wizard 3 piece vs 5 piece
I haven't found either one to be stronger/more stable. The 5 piece does not have a scarf joint which is the one possible weak link in the 1 and 3 piece necks. Some of the 5-piece necks also have a volute which some people like (myself included).
I think that, in general, folks here prefer the one piece original Wizards followed closely by the 3-piece Super Wizards, but there's no concrete reasons why. The older one piece neck's are more prone to twisting, but you'll find a lot of people here, when given a choice, wouldn't want to play on anything else.
If this is for your 2570, I personally would be looking for a '97-'02 Super Wizard. They are EXCELLENT necks, and can usually be found for a decent price.
