Help Identify this Square Heel RG Neck

Hi Guys,


I cant for the life of me, identify this neck..... it seems to be an anomoly. It would be cool if I could get some assistance, but as it stands, I may just have to pass.



I need help in identifying a 6 string neck that I am looking at.

It is a maple/maple FB neck
24 Fret
Gibson style nut (or takes one so I'm told)
Angled headstock with scarfe joint as per locking head stocks.
Black colour headstock with the grey logo/tick with normal RG series text.

Few things to consider:

Seller states that this is not a locking nut conversion
The 23 & 24th fret do no overhang the neck like on my square heeled RG550 necks.
Serial is quoted as 010728241
Heel stamp is IC JUL 01

I am hoping this isn't one for the Ibby collectors forums... I dont have an account there

Thanks for all your help as usual guys.

Cheers

Sounds fake, IMO. If it has an "RG Series" logo on the headstock, it should have an all access neck joint, and if it has an old heel it should have the 23-24 hangover.

My best guess is that it might be a really cheap RG170 from way back.

I also thought it was an RG170 as they have a single locking trem. That also looks like a YYMMXXXXX Chinese serial number which would date the guitar at July 2001 but the IC on the neck sort of ties in with Indonesian Cor Tek (a 2001 Indo guitar?? Were they maikng those there in that year?) so it maybe would have the AANJ and as Toshiro says a square heel neck would not have the RG Series Logo. It doesn't add up.

Came across a year 2002 Korean made RG170 on *bayuk. Although it has a rosewood board it has the square heel neck joint and RG Series on the headstock.

Cheers guys, really appreciate the feedback here.

Some things dont add up and by the sounds of things, if they do, they add up to an ugly low spec neck whick is not what I'd be grabbing.
