Re: 22-fret Ibanez neck on Ibanez RG? Can I?
whoa hold up, the scale length is correct but if it previously had a 24 fret neck, and you're putting on a 22, ie 22 will be where 24 was. then you're essentially moving the entire neck towards the guitar and you'd need the bridge to move also, to keep the scale length.
on a 22 fretter the bridge will be placed closer to the tail than on a 24(of same scale).
so in intonation terms, sorry mate it won't work.
edit just saw you have an overhang- and the 22 doesn't? if so it may be close enough to work. just remember scale length has to be correct enough between bridge saddles and nut.
