what makes a 450dx

I've had a 450dx for years and have always loved the guitar, but i think it might be time for upgrades. Can anyone recommend a good replacement neck? The frets are worn down and dead in some spots. Will a wizard II neck fit from the 350dx?
Were the inf2 pickups made by Dimarzio for Ibanez? how do they compare to the rest of the Dimarzio line?

Re: what makes a 450dx

have you sent it to a luthier for a whole neck refret? it cost a lot cheaper than replacing the old neck with a new one.

Re: what makes a 450dx

the Infinity pickups are not crap...as far as stock pickups go. But yes, they do not compare to real Dimarzios. I would also say to you that re-fretting is a lot better alternative than replacing the whole neck.
