Hi, I saw on their website that the radius is like 430mmR but I don't understand this kind of writing, isn't it supposed to be like what Jackson does with their fingerboards? 14"-16" ? So how many ..." is the radius of the wizard neck? Thanks

teh radius is 430mm. do u know metric? milli-meters? 430mm equals to 43 centimeters. whcih is 0.43 meter.

430mmR is seventeen inches constant over the whole fretboard. Jacksons have multiradius necks, so they give two values.

Yes I know the metric system, but metres and all are used for lenghts, and radius is for like the bending of a certain material and expressed in degrees not? Like a corner is expressed in °, ' and ". But I might got it all wrong :s Might sound stupid to y'all but I don't get it
If those Jackson necks are 14"-16" what would that be in that mmR kind of thing?

It means the profile of the fretboard is curved as if it were part of a circle with a 430mm radius.
#7
jackson should be like 340mmR-400mmR

jacksons have compound radius. ibanez doesnt.

Wow that was extremely helpful Thanks!

I think I understand my error, " is the short for inches

Yeah, got it all now!

Thanks everyone!
I just needed to know because I like the necks of Jackson, that 14"-16" and I was wondering if I would like this wizard neck as well :s

And here it is, the comparision between the 2 necks. The overlapping between the 2 doesn't give you a good comparision because the frets on which the dimensions were given aren't the same :s But anyway... I think this is pretty accurate.
