Jem necks and joints

along with what was said above

* the AANJ RG and JEM necks are interchangable
* the old-style RG and JEM necks are interchangable.

Some shimming might be needed, as well as possible redrilling the holes to fit the body 100%. But the neck pocket size and scale are the same.

You can never install an AANJ neck on an old-style body and vice versa. Good luck... glen

I guess that even though the 555 AANJ is different, it's still interchangable, because Vai has that Jem7vwh with the 555 neck...

I was watching the g3 video last night and is it me or
does evo have a deeper neck pocket than my dbk...I've been thinking for a long time about getting this mod - for increased sustain and better feel.
