Whose got an RGT-220a?

What's the neck like on those, carve wise? Similar to a Wizard, or possibly a bit thicker? I've never played one but love the look of these, and the sound of ash/maple.

I didn’t buy the one I tried, but definitely recall it having a thicker, rounder neck than a normal RG.

I've got one and that's exactly right, it's a bit thicker and rounder than a normal Prestige RG. It's really comfortable!

Hi. Ten years ago I was about to buy one. I`m very picky in terms of neck shape. So the neck felt exactly the same as Wizard Prestige neck. The neck depth was 18mm on first fret and 20mm on 12th fret. So the neck is the same as on the most of today RG prestige. However it`s not as thin as super Wizards from past (that had 17mm on first and 19mm on 12th fret).

If You played rg2550z You will have the same feelings as on RGT-220.

I personally bit more like chunky necks like Wizard II and old Jem necks (19mm on first and 21mm on 12th fret), so I did not bought that axe.



Cheers

I had an RGT320. The catalog claims that these RGT's had Wizard necks, which is hilarious if you've ever played on. I'm not sure why this happened, but they have a history of being really loose with calling things Wizard.

The 02-04 catalogs correctly identify these as Ultra necks.

Just picked up a '05 RGT220H and like the neck a lot. To me, the neck feels more like my '93 VWH. It does not feel like the old Ultra that was on my UCEW. The Ultra profile had a wider profile like a D shape. The upper fret access in 2nd to none. The neck thru has a nice carve where the bolt on would be and allows for a much thinner profile under the last frets. It is 58mm at the end of the fret board but really makes no difference. All in all, a very nice feeling neck.
