Jem 777vdy pickguard

I am getting a pickguard made for my jem so i can keep the original pickups pickguard intact. what i need to know is this. will the pickguard be the same as an rg 550's in size and shape and are the holes the same. i'm assuming it will be as this model has the wizard one neck rather than the jem. Any advice would be appreciated.

Re: Jem 777vdy pickguard

Someone else will correct me if I'm wrong, but it looks like you're safe unless it's a 1989-1990 777VDY; the volume knob on the 1990-and earlier JEM models was positioned much closer to the pickups and tremolo than on later models.

I really need a life, I know these useless little details and I don't even own a JEM yet!

I've just put my 89' Jem777DY into an RG550 body, everything fit perfectly (except 2 of the neck screws which I had to be 5mm longer for the angled heel).
So yes, I believe the pickguard should be identical.
