thin wizard neck

    I decided to bust out this dusty old thing. I love the guitar tbh. I've just been to lazy to replace the 13 gauge strings that I hate so much. Threw some 10's on and I love the feel of the neck. I just don't know anything about the guitar itself. I baught it from a pawn shop for 200 dollars. Was...

    The Ibanez site has its thickness listed at 18mm at the 1st and 20mm at the 12th; but also says "24-fret PGM301 Prestige neck is 2mm thicker than our superthin Wizard necks." So wouldn't that make it 20mm at the 1st? Cheers.

    I have 2 RGs for trade. Can't get with the thin Wizard necks anymore. 1999 RG520QSTB. Mahogany body. Edge trem. Pickups have been upgraded to a DiMarzio X2N in the bridge and a Dimarzio Fred in the neck. It's been played and has the edge dinks and backrash but nothing huge. Monster sound. Comes...

    I'm selling off a few of my Ibanezes, and I'm looking for a good USED guitar under the $1200 range. It has to have a locking tremolo, rosewood board, HH or HSH configuration. 24 frets is not a must, but would be preferred. Any guitars to look out for? Charvel? Kramer? etc, etc

    HAving owned 8 Ibanez guitars, I have sold off all of my Wizard necks. Cramping being the main reason. I dislike the thin wizard neck. BUT, I play great and enjoy the feeling of a Wizard 2 profile. I would LOVE to see an RGT, orregular RG in prestige spec with the Edge Pro. I currently have...

    I finally got my 2540 home from ICU and anxiously plugged her in after putting my baby boy to bed. I had a chance to twang on it at the shop and was impressed with how my tech cleaned this thing up. I had to hang out at the shop to wait for my wood to go down. Ha ha. First impressions. WOW...

    Hey Folks, I've got an early 90s RG570 that I'm going to turn into a Frankenstein guitar. The current neck is in horrible need of a refreting, but I'm thinking of replacing it with a wider C shaped neck. I much prefer the newer newer Jem neck profile to the old super thin wizard neck the RG...

    So, I've been told that Herman Li is working on a signature model with Ibanez (Apparently he said he is in a magazine). I thought it was all BS until I saw this. Now, thats pretty much the ultimate S IMO. ZR trem, 24 frets, Most Likely Mohagany body, and hopefully a wizard neck (wishfull...

    Hi - First, an ibanez rg550, a player's guitar meaning there are several nicks along the edge of the body and on the back. The edge nicks go thru to the wood. It has a very thin wizard neck (pre-aanj) and is set up for 9-42s. The bridge is a lo pro edge, pearl pickguard (H-x-H) - there is a...

    Hi - I am contemplating about selling/trading my rg550 away as i don't play it as much anymore; the neck while fast is too thin for me and i prefer slightly thicker necks. Anyways, it's an ibanez rg550, a player's guitar meaning there are several nicks along the edge of the body and on the...

    After much debate and playing TONS of different guitars, I am ultimately back to Ibanez once again. I really am considering a PGM as my next guitar purchase since it has a similar body shape and pickup selection as the JEM, but with a few fixed-bridge options. I think I'd love a PGM500, but...

    Ok, I thought we could have a thread to share some tips for our Ibanez guitars. Ok here's mine :- To restore your maple neck (Wizard, or any maple neck for that matter), to get rid of that sticky, glossy shine that builds up over the years, I use a green scourer, the kind you get on the back of...

    1) We already talked about the lack of maple fretboards on the other post. 2) Lack of colors, stop spending time on stupid new body shapes and stick to making your bread and butter guitars better. If you have blue, red, white black, bodies on some guitars why not offer eack color on most the...

    Just a thought guys and gals - it's the anniversary of the Jem AND the RG series this year. There's lots of talk of a 20th Jem but what about a 20th RG? I'd certainly buy one if the spec and colours were good :D
