Ibanez got a little carried away IMO with the Wizard I. The Wizard II has a more substantial feel to it and is better for bending while still being extremely fast.

The Wizard I is fantastic for solos and playing way up the neck, but it is so thin that playing open chords makes my hand hurt. My Jem has a much better feel for chords.

I prefer the Wizard 1, won't play anthing else (that's not 7 string)... This includes Wizard IIs, Jem necks, or anything else.

Of course, with how little I play open chords...

I like both just fine. Wizard is easier to play fast on, and Wizard II(there are several profiles?) is good as well.

WizI hurt my wrist in a nasty way, which scared me to trade for a WizII that's offered no problems at all. WizII is more reminiscent of (most) Jem necks.
