Universe neck on a RG7?

Forgive me if this has already been discussed I think I remember a thread on this before...but did the early RG7's have Universe necks? I just bought used RG7 with no stripe on the neck, I think it's a 98 and it's made in Japan. I bought (and eventually sold) an RG7 around the time they came out and remember the neck having a stripe down the back and I don't remember it being made in Japan. Anyone have any info to offer? Anyone, anyone?

All RG-7620s are made in Japan. And I can't remember completely, but I'm 90% sure we decided that the earliest RG-7620s had UV necks.

I believe the RG's up until 98 shared the profile of the UV's up to 98, although neither RG or the AANJ UV had the same profile of the original UV necks. The later UV and RG shared the same profile again, but it was much fatter, not UV like at all.

To me, the only comfy UV neck was the original neck joint one.

Agreed about the neck profiles. The RG is waaay thicker than my UV's, closer to my UV777GR than my '90 green dot UV7. Somehow it works though, must be the taller RG7 frets. Thanks for the info.
