I'm hoping this leads to a full-fledged Prestige MIJ RGR1565M reissue. Not that I'd pay that much for one right now, but I'd love to see one.

Edge III + Wizard II = :( :(

The neck is the bigger dealbreaker for me though.

As cool as these look I can't imagine them being particularly mind-blowing, bit of a limited run too so I'll probably not get to play one but I can probably guess how they play.

I just wish these were MIJ and there was a black one :lol: that said a neon green one would rule.

They changed the wizard II again recently. I've justplayed a new 350 red maple one and an s320 with the wizard two and it's different again, a bit thicker, but a hair rounder. Still flat like any ibby neck but not fucking square like they did with the 2 for so long. I really likeit actually

^that sounds promising about the neck because the old Wizard 2 is unplayable for me
The OLD wizard II was amazing (like pre 2001, and early 01). Then it got boxy and gross until (hopefully) now.

I played one about two weeks ago. They're made in Indonesia and whilst it was ok, it was nothing that would make me want to sell any of my Ibanez guitars.
As others have said, MIJ and a good trem would be a much better idea :yesway:

I'm hoping this too, old Wizard 2s are sick. And I suppose you can replace the Edge III with an Edge Pro for non routed goodness.

While this may be a mere shadow of the older superior 565s, the MIIs have improved significantly as of late.
