    Hey guys and girls.

    just a quick question. I was looking up some specs. on a few guitars I'm wanting, the RG770DX and the RG3550MZ and there exactly the same. The thing i thought was weird is that they have different necks ones the super wizard prestige and the other is listed as a original wizard prestige. Why the different name if the specs are the same?:nuts:

    Well you could ask ibanez about it.
    I've no clue cause I had a lot of ibbz through all the years but the only thing I care about necks is strings action.I like it very low and ibbz guitars always gave me it.
    I don't care if a neck is fat or thin.
    You could try asking that at jemsite too.
    There are pretty FANatics there who know everything about ibbz guitars.

    The Super Wizard is 1mm thinner at the 12th fret than the Original Wizard. (19mm vs. 20mm)

    Prestige refers to the finishing and human time spent finishing the neck.

    They're both the same profile. The heels are different however, the 770DX has the old "block" heel and the 3550 has AANJ. Ibanez started using the original wizard profile on the higher end prestiges this year. That's why you have wizard (old school neck), super wizard prestige (old school profile, new heel), and wizard prestige (a little thicker/rounder than original wizard specs). Ibanez fans have been screaming for a neck as thin as the original wizard on the newer prestiges, and that's what the super wizard prestige neck is.:metal:
