AANJ bolt pattern compatibility
I was wondering if anyone had experience putting a Japanese AANJ neck on a Korean or Indonesian body. Are they compatible in general?
I've been told the neck pockets are the same, but that the bolt patterns may not be. Anybody know if they're different, and if so by how much? Would new holes be far enough away from the old ones so as to not interfere, or would I end up having to fill the holes in the neck with dowel and then redrill and hope that everything held?
For interest, the guitar I'm working on is an RVX220, one of those odd can- opener looking Vs. It was made in Indonesia, and has a 25.5 inch scale neck, despite what a lot of websites list for its specs.
I've replaced all the gaudy chrome hardware with black and put a 500t/496r combo in place of the Inf3 and Inf4 pickups that came with it. It's still an odd shaped guitar, but in a good way now, or so I think. It reminds me a lot of the Gibson Corvus I had back in high school in the 80s, except that this is a much better made guitar, and was even in its original state.
A nice Prestige neck off **** would finish it off nicely, but if it's going to be too much hassle, or have a high likelihood of failure, I'll probably quit while I'm ahead.
Any advice you guys you guys can offer (other than get rid of the ugly guitar) would be greatly appreciated.
