I wish Ibanez just give these new and modified neck profiles different names rather just changing the specs of existing name. It's confusing, and slightly misleading, to many people. --Jason
Good point tho im waiting to play one properly to judge the taper because i think as long as the strings dont taper more lke with a wizard 2, it should be allright.

Super wizard back on Prestige guitars in 2007?

Hello Ibanez!

The missed super wizard came back in 2006 with the addition of a titanium reinforcement rod on J Custom models.

Can we expect this neck to be back in this form on next prestige RG generations?

...Or is it just a crazy dream?
