22 fret S-series neck swapped with a 24 fret RG neck?

Any idea if this would pose any problems? I love my S520, but I really crave the two extra frets. Would this be cause problems with the ZR?

Also, if this route was possible, I would likely have a custom RG neck made (I need green inlays, as I want to UV7BK-ize this S). Any suggestions as to someone who DOESN'T have a huge backlog whilst taking your money and not answering e-mails for years?

Thanks for the help.

Yes. It would cause horrible intonation problems. Just wait for the 24-fret S to (hopefully) come out this summer. It's going to be awesome.

If I am not mistaken, the only way to put an 24 fret neck on an S-series guitar is using the old square heel parts...
an old square heel wizard neck with the overhang would fit an old S body nicely. The only problem is that the overhang would go over the neck pickup rout. I have seen an S guitar with ths mod but the guy was only using the bridge pickup anyway.
