What's the radius of a Wizard fingerboard?

Question is in the title. I'm wondering about how I'll adapt to my next guitar which has a 12" radius. I think it's a little more curved than the Wizard, but maybe it's a little more comfortable. Plus it has a 24.75" scale length! It takes guts to buy somethng other than an Ibanez after so long playing them!

Re: What's the radius of a Wizard fingerboard?

well, while i'm sure you'll make the transistion, i don't know if it will be an easy one. i also am most comfortable on a 12" radius neck and didn't know why for a long time. my favorite ibanez necks are the js necks and the viper profile necks, both of which have 12" radius. of course the actual neck profile plays a big part too, but i'm super particular about radius. which is the reason i can't really get into many of the newer rgs. they're all wizard or wizard 2 profiles, very flat. so good luck with it, maybe you'll find you prefer it over the smaller radius.

dude, it doesn't matter.

good neck + good setup = enjoyable to play

otherwise = unenjoyable to play

Just found out from AJ at the Peavey forum, the V-Type actually has a 15" radius. Cool! Shouldn't be too dissimilar from an Ibanez in flat-ness.
