Cool Thinking to buy a Ibanez S540 LTD

Hello, im having a problem to decide if im going to buy this one. (i cant put Images or links, damn!)

Its an Ibanez S540 LTD, Black, with the "Custom Made" inlay and shark tooths inlays, nothing special, but i really want it... the only issue is that i want to know how's the neck. I have another two S Series but with de Wizard II, im aware that the S540 LTD has a Wizard neck, but im not going to buy it if the neck is too similar. I like Wizard's II necks, but i want something even thinner.

What do you think?



PS: I live in Argentina, and the price for this one is really cheap for this country, usually an S Prestige (or made in japan) costs around 2000usd - 2700usd, this one is 1000usd (again, for Argentina, that's cheap)

So the Wizard is thinner than a Jem neck, is that right?

you won't be disappointed with the S540 Wizard necks... especially coming from a Wizard II.
and yes they're thinner than a Jem neck.

Oh, that's good news!
When i hear reviews and they say the Wizard II is a fast neck im not a 100% agree with that, that's why i want a thinner neck. Thanks for the insight :P

I love the old S540LTDs and black suits this guitar so well. As long as the guitar is in good condition, I'd recommend picking this one up straight away
