Re: String Height, Neck Angle, Pick Guard
It's just the way it is with a pickguarded RG, you're going to have less clearance. I'm pretty sure Ibanez doesn't machine neck pockets/necks differently for guard/non-guard guitars. A shim is your best bet IMO (especially if your bridge is bottomed out) for getting more room to dig.
