Can anyone tell me RG body thickness?

I have settled on ordering the new Ibanez RG5121. I want to have an Evertune bridge installed in it, but to do so, the body thickness PLUS the height of the strings off the body must equal 2.1”.

I’ve never owned an RG, and I can’t find that guitars thickness posted anywhere.

Can anyone with an RG tell me if their guitar meets these specs for thickness?

Thanks for anyone who would care to give me info!

No issues to report, it should fit just fine.

Thanks for your input! I had seen pics of peoples’ guitars That were TOO thin when the Evertune was installed, and the back of the guitar looks like crap when that’s the case....there’s pics floating around showing an extra 1/4” high back-plate cavity... if I’m spending big bucks on a guitar, I don’t want it to look/feel bad! Thanks!

I didn't realise that Satriani has one installed in a JS2000, 4 years go!
