Technically, yes it would fit. Not without some modification to both the body and neck though.

Re: JEM neck on RG1xxv

The shape of the neckpocket and the positioning of the screws then I suppose?

It's more the width of the neck pocket and the neck screw locations on the body. Not a big deal at all. The bigger job will be to add a solid block under the "shelf" on the neck. Again, nothing that would stop me from doing the change over...... but you should know that it's necessary.

Re: JEM neck on RG1xxv

it's necessary to remove the fingerboard.

Not necessarily. If done just right and with patience-the block can be glued, clamped to dry and carefully shaped and sanded to fit without removing the board. Especially since that neck is not bound.

Exactly....there would be no reason to pull the fretboard off.

Square heel vs AANJ. I'm going to say "not without so much modification that it wouldn't be worth it."
