neck and bridge

wizard 2 neck on the 4xx's, Super Wizard on 5xx

low TRS on 4xx, Edge on 5xx (or lopro edge on some)

i think they arer the main differences

of course i may be wrong :roll:

Nope, that's it exactly. Different color, different trem (BIGGIE!) and different neck. I cant think of anything else that's different... Except I thought the 5xx just had the _ Wizard... ?

'Super' Wizard is the world designation for the bubinga-striped Wizard neck. :D

One other thing different between the 2: RG5xx's have a 'barrel' jack, while the 4xx's have a 'football' plate mounted jack.

Ibanez Junkie 11-08-2003 03:25 AM

i think the wood's quality better as the nums go up..

Well not necessarily, I dont think there are any general differenes between the wood in the bodys of a rg 570 and a 770, just the difference in quality between the korean and japanese models. Also the body on the 450 is slightly smaller and rounder around the edges than the 550 as well as the tuning keys and routing being of a lower quality.

Mine has a black plastic square jack. One of my friends actually broke his, and apparently it's hard to find a replacement for it...

Black plastic? Im sure thats not original at all if its plastic. Ive seen them made from very soft die cast metal, or pot metal. The only problem i had with my korean 270s jack were the screw holes kept stripping out. Replacements anyway are easy to come by, just look in the stew mac catalog

DirtyBird31 11-10-2003 11:44 PM

The 4xx's definitely have black plastic. I bought it new. And SV300's black palstic jack plate broke. My AX120 has that football plate you're talking about. I'm pretty sure the 200s and 300s have the football plate, while the 400's have hte black plastic square plate. And the 500's have ... whatever it is they have... :wink:

toshiro 11-11-2003 08:27 AM

That's wierd, all the RG4xxs at the local dealer(old stock) have the football plate, and every one I've ever seen has had one... Bah, too confusing..

Either way, RG4xxs don't have the rear-routed barrel jack like an RG5xx. :D

The superwizard is not very different from the stock wizard at all. You wont be able to tell much if any difference.
