520 qs with a 570 neck?

hi there, last string change i decided to pull off my neck, and i looked at the factory stamps. the body is an rg 520 qs, and the neck is marked rg 570 at the joint. although i don't mind having that neck, it feels weird knowing that it's a different model

Re: 520 qs with a 570 neck?

Someone else will probably know better but I know Ibanez uses the same neck for multiple models sometimes, or at least they used to. An example of this is the RG7420, I've seen 2 of them that had necks stamped RG7620. Maybe someone here with an RG520 can confirm for you. What year is yours?

That's normal, they used the same necks for 520s and 570s. It's the exact same spec, so they're not going to stamp them differently at the factory.

550s also shared necks with 570s

Pretty much all the made in Japan 400/500 series used the same necks at that time.

Agreed - I used to have a 520qs and it had a 570 stamp on the neck.

Nice guitar!
