the Super Wizard is 17.5/18mm @ 1st and about 20mm @ 12th. they used to say that the Wizard is 17mm @ 1st fret but it's actually no less than 17.5mm, more likely 18mm.

The only other necks I have heard of being Ti reinforced is some top of the line J Custom's.

I asked that over on the Ibanez forum, and the response was the 550s were the ONLY models to get that neck. Same deal with the Edge tremolos. Brilliant huh? --Jason

I have had zero problems with any of my Wizard necks warping, which includes the ultra-thin "Super Wizard" neck on my RG520QS.

No contest! I'd go for the reinforced Ti-Wizard.

For what it's worth, I have an ancient original Wizard that has never been anything other than perfect. There are two (very minor) stress cracks behind the nut, but these are not a problem. It plays better than my Prestige ever could hope to, but the Prestige is also nice.

Again, my vote goes to the Ti-Wizard. That's the ultimate Ibanez neck, IMO... and I don't even need to play it to know that.

The Super Wizard is the has the same measurements and profile as the Original Wizard. The "Super" part comes from its construction with the bubinga stripe. --Jason

I mean the titanium reinforced, 5-piece version with Original Wizard specs like what's on the 20th ann 550's. --Jason

Re: Reinforced Original Wizard or Prestige Wizard

I only have on guitar with a wizard and its almost as old as me and the neck is straight as a pin, it's even been broken at the nut before. I wouldn't trade that neck for the world!
