I came up with this kick ass riff on my ukelele when I was 12. Find out two years later, it was smoke on the water. Got my hopes and dreams killed..

Description from another website...

The Wizard is the reason Vai uses Ibanez, and this neck is straight and fast as lighting. The Prestige Wizard is the same slim fast profile as the original Wizard. The only difference is they made 3 fundamental improvements. 1) In 2003, they switch to a 3 piece laminate (one piece of flat sawn maple with 2 pieces of quarter sawn maple on each side) construction. This eliminated the separate scarf joint headstock. 2) They switched to a top mount locking nut that does not go all the way through the neck. 3) They added a volute (the thicker hump on the back of the neck just behind the nut) for added strength. All of this combines to make an amazingly stiff, strong and stabile neck. No more cracks behind the locking nut. The perfect addition to your project.

I just thought they were real thin? And of course made by Gandalf.

Harry Potter. Gandalf was highly overrated. All those supposed great powers but he never really used them to kick ass.

YES! Finally someone I can agree with.

Even if you aren't particularly fond of having a fat neck; the benefits it has compared to a thin one (sustain, tone, stability) greatly outweighs the 'negative' aspects.
