I nearly choked on my cigarette there. Customer service from a marketing guy of a big name manufacturer owned by Fender?

What'll happen next? World peace?

LOL!

Actually, I've had amazing customer service from Todd Binder of ESP US ...  When my M1 was delayed coming into the US, Todd put my guitar to the head of the line and even put on a set of strings that I sent him. It arrived in  NY ready to play!!

Afaik the PGM 301 is getting the wizard profile now  :(  :(

It used to have a slightly thicker pgm neck, I found it ok actually.  The guitar itself got some ok tones when I tried it.  Reverse headstock+painted f holes = mmmm

The original wizard is still the best...similar to the super wizard...I stopped looking at Ibanez around '94 when they pissed around with some great guitars to make them cheaper. But I do have a pair of 1990 RG550s with maple necks!

I'm with HJM on this one, the original wizard neck was superb, I still use that profile for people who want a "fast" neck.

For me, the super wizard on my Prestige is immense, i've never ever held a comfier neck! everything else just feels either like a brick (gibsons) or like a flat plastic lollipop stick (other ibanez) to me. but yu know, i guess everyone's gotten used to the neck of their favourite guitar!
