will a wizard neck fit a wizard II guitar?

I have an RG470, and i have always wanted to have a crazy thin wizard neck on it. It has the wizard II, which is cool, but i love that yardstick feel that the 550 or 570 has!

My guitar has the AANJ. If i find a wizard neck that is also AANJ, will it fit alright? Keep in mind, my RG470 also has the LO TRS trem on it as opposed to the Edge/Lo Pro that the Wizard necks usually use.

thanks!

You should also match up the country of manufacture. I dunno where the 470s were built, but korean and japanese necks are interchangeable where indonesian aren't.

If you have a korean or japanese guitar, a japanese neck will bolt on fine. You'll need to redrill the mounting holes for an indonesian neck however, and vice versa.

Number of frets also needs to match, so make sure you don't buy an S neck or something like that, as it won't intonate correctly.

Re: will a wizard neck fit a wizard II guitar?

The Wizard and Wizard II are directly swapable provided the neck pockets are the same width. Ibanez has changed the width of both the original wizard and the wizard II throughout the years. You NEED to measure the width of your neck (in millimeters) and make sure that whatever your looking at to but is the same width. All other aspects of the two necks are directly replaceable with each other.
