Lighter replacement body for RG320DX Wizard II neck?

Because I am now used to my S2540 and my FGM100 weight wise (easier on the shoulder), I'm looking at the possibility of taking the wizard II neck off my 2000 RG320DX (AANJ) and replacing it with another lighter body. Ideally I'd like an S series body if that 's possible. Does anyone know if any particular S model or any lighter model body will fit with the WII from my 320DX?

Any help is mucho appreciated.

no it won't because RG has 24 frets and S has 22. Even if you can stick wII neck into S body you won't be able to get intonation because scale you be different. At least I think so...

By the way, you're really spoiled, that RG has pretty light basswood body, you should try my solid ash guitar
Cheers

D'oh! I totally forgot about the 22 vs. 24.

Yeah my S and my FGM are totally light and now my RG feels like a Les Paul.

I think I'm just gonna keep her the way she is.
