Basically "thin U" v Wizard II

Which one do you like better, and why?
Which one would be more suitable for really small hands(and fingers)?

well ive got pretty big hands and the wizard 2 neck is great for me, before my ibanez s520ex i had an aria mac 50 and a Platinum warlock and i got used to the wizard 2 neck no prolem at all its much more comfortable than my other guitars.

Everyone on these boards i feel are very biased towards Ibanez. I personally like ESP necks better. end of story.

Why don't you just go to a guitar store and try them out for yourself?

thing is though, until you start spending a lot of money, ESP all have painted necks.

Natural Satin > Gloss.

Ibanez necks > Esp necks =]
Just my opinion.
My Gear:
Ibanez RG550M Dimarzio TZ + Paf Pro
Ibanez RG550R Dimarzio TZ in Bridge
Ibanez TS9>Vox AD50VT.

Don't just say it, tell me why.

I should go try them myself, but just to get an idea..As if i'm going to buy one without trying one.
#10
Well ibanez necks are faster, so playing lead on it is obviously easier and better =]
Esp necks are well...i've only played the EC-400 and M-250
The EC-400 had a medium flat neck, it was uncomfortable for big hands!
M-250 was like in between jackson and ibanez, more jackson though, so medium thin and round

you would have to go try them yourself, cos not all necks are the same, theres Wizard II which imo would be perfect for you, but hey dont rely on opinions, best thing to do is try them out yourself ^_^ good luck

thin u on the esp/ltd is way better in my opinion, the thin wizard is almost too thin. it cuts into my hand. The Ltd fits just right

I like the feel of the thin u for riffing a lot. But don't forget about the ESP/LTD's with the extra thin u necks, I have an M-1000 and I believe it rapes any Ibanez.
#14
personally the ibanez necks just feel unnatural to me. i dont like the flat back as i dont feel i can rotate my wrist around to hit different part of the fretboard so good.
#16
Thanks for the fast replies. Here's some more :
Is the 2mm thickness difference really that noticable? Also I heard that it's hard to barre chord with Wizard necks. Whould you agree?
#17
Basically it comes to this, its all personal preference so just go try both out and make your own decision, BUT i would highly reccomend looking at the ESP's I own quite a few of their high end guitars and if you spend the money the guitars are of great quality. I would pick my ESP over any Gibson or PRS any day. So basically I prefer the ESP's although I have played Ibanez's and there necks are slimmer but personally I think they are too thin and to the point of being uncomfortable. Whatever you choose though, its your choice. Choose what fits you best.

Well Wizard IIs vary within each other. The S are much rounder than the Rgs.

So keep that in mind. I prefer Ibanez (obvious if you look at my name.) although neither neck compares to the original Wizard imo. God I love the original wizard. To the point where while I can play with out it pretty much fine I really prefer not to do so.
#19
Ibanez has the best necks ever IMO

Steve Vai has massive bony hands and he plays on thin Ibanez necks.

Jem neck is considerably thicker than the original Wizard. Infact they released a Jem (777VDY) with a wizard probably because of complaints about thicker necks.

Paul Gilberts neck is thicker also (on his sig)

2 compared to orginal wizard. 1 compared to the wizard II (Note rg wizard IIs) S wizard IIs have a completely different profile.
