If Wizard necks didn't exist it would be neccessary to invent them. ;-)

They had maple capped fretboards no , that makes them 2 piece . Also I wanted an original but couldn't find one that wasn't cracked at the nut or warped . I think the redesign was for the better but time will tell .

They are still 1 piece maple necks.

Re: Wizard necks

Does it have a separate fretboard ? I don't see how that's a one piece not like a Fender anyway with the skunk stripes . But if you say so .

They're still called one piece necks. Doesn't matter if the fretboard is separate. For that matter, the headstock and neck are joined with a scarf joint. Go figure, it's just the terminology. The number of pieces tend to refer to the individual pieces of wood running length-wise down the neck. The fretboard is never counted.
