Wizard neck, any warpage troubles?

Hey, Ive got 2 RGs, one's a 1987 Black/Rosewood RG550, and the other is a 1992 Lazer Blue/Maple RG550DX.

Both have wizard necks, which are pretty much the thinnest necks out there.

I just want to know, how prone are these early RGs (87'-92') wizard necks to warping?

What does it really take for a neck to warp? Like, what kind of conditions?

Im kinda concerned about my guitars, because. . .I love them.

Thanks guys.

You have had those guitars for more than a decade without noticing any warping, why get worried now? Unless you subject them to some nasty climate changes or place them near a heat radiator or at a wet place and so on.

Re: Wizard neck, any warpage troubles?

I've never personally seen a Wizard warp, though I have seen other 80's Ibanez necks warp (mostly on AR and AS guitars). I think the universal Wizard concern is cracks behind the nut from overtightening the locing nut bolts. If your guitars aren't warped now and you take care of them, you're likely fine. Just try to keep them temp and humidity constant where and when you can.
