UV777 Neck to be installed on a RG7620 body..possible?

Hi guys,

I've got a quick question...is it possible for me to install the UV777 universe neck onto a normal RG7620 body? I've got a beat up UV neck which I would like to fix onto the body. Is it a quick and easy one-off installment or do I have to do some major adjustments to the neck joints etc?
Would appreciate all your inputs
Thanks in advance...

As long as it's a 777 neck [AANJ] it should mate right up.

It may require a little sanding to fit just right. I have a similar issue with a LA Custom shop neck and a 7620 body...the neck pocket is just ever so slightly smaller than it should be for this neck. Jeremy is taking care of everything for me,in addition to a bunch of other stuff.

Word of caution, if it is too tight...do not force it too much or you will risk crack the pocket on the lower end.
