Really. My Super Wizards are narrower than the Prestige Wizard, that's why i have space either side of my Super Wizard neck now that it's sitting in the neck pocket of a S5470 (which was designed for a Prestige Wizard).\


Sorry, I should have been more precise - I meant the new incarnation of the Super Wizard, as on the new RG3620. The Ibby website states that it's also 58mm. So the original Wizard is 56, that's curious as the new Super Wiz is marketed as exact replica of the 1987 version. So where do the extra 2mm come from and what for? :)


this is incorrect it is supposed to be modeled on the necks of the later rg series that were in circulation a few years before 2003

here we go 1998 catalog and the introduction of the super wizard neck





whoops it is named wizard and these specs stayed the same all the way untill 2002

width at nut
43mm
width at last fret
56mm
thickness at 1st fret
17mm
thickness at 12th fret
20mm
fretboard radius
430mm

So the mystery still remains :).

BTW, did anyone have the chance yet to play (and compare) the re-incarnated 2009 volute-5-piece-RG-only Super Wizard?

I still say its because the neck was too thin and the extra 1mm of space on either side helps with the string not slipping off the fretboard. my rg with the 56mm is pretty easy to slide the string off with but my esp doesnt have that problem and the fretboard definitely looks wider.

though the rgt320 has 48-68 measurements so explain that one!

Guess that's a typo, as other countries' pages have 43-58 for RGTs.
