On the Ibanez website it states that this guitar have a 3 piece neck.

However, in other sources it states it has a 5 piece neck.

Can anyone clear this up for me and tell me which it has?

Thanks.

It's really 3 piece maple with 2 walnut stripes. The walnut stripes are so thin (i think it's less than or 1mm thick) it looks like it was placed there for cosmetic purposes. That's why some call it a 3 piece and some call it a 5 piece neck. However on the 7 string version of the Ibanez Prestige RG, the walnut stripe is about four times thicker than the 6 string Prestige necks which makes the 7 string neck obviously a 5 piece neck.

Yeah, you're right.
Seems to me that Ibanez changed the spec for the necks.
A few months ago this 2550 and the 2570 came with a wizard ultra or super wizard neck and now they all have the wizard with 18 - 22 mm and not the super-thin ones.
Or is this just a mistake?
