Probably not, the RG is based off the Jem which was was really based off the Green Meanie Strat/Charvel that Via owned and they were all 25.5. That's pretty standard for the Strat/superstrat guitars except the extend range or down tune like the RGD with the 26.5.

Thanks for the info. I am working on 2 project RG's and one I want to try and get more of a single cutaway Les Paul sound, as close as possible anyway with the big difference in the way the 2 or built. Thats what made feel to ask this .

1994 SF470 is the first that comes to mind.

For a thicker, Les Paul like sound, I would keep an eye out for an SZ520/720. It's not a single cut but probably the best mix between RG and LP that Ibanez ever did...... It also has a 25.1" scale so it's between the RG and LP in that category as well.

there was IRG 740 or RG 5150 something ( ishibashi model) year 1997 if I'm not mistaken, it's short scale 24.75.
I owned that one for like ... 1 month before end up selling it because of weird feeling that it has 24.75 scale.

I wish I still had the photo of it side by side with another RG.
If you put it side by side with another RG, it was obvious that the 740 is shorter.

The SF470 has the 24 3/4" scale, not the SV... nothing to do with an RG, but I just want to clarify that.

The DTX120 Destroyer and the ICx120 Iceman, the Millennium editions as they were called, are all Gibson Scale. I have the DTX120 and love it!

To me also better fits 24.75" scale neck. I have it on my Ibanez Les Paul standard.
