My RG520 has the wrong neck!!!!!!!
I finally took the neck of my 520 to see the date on the neck joint which is by the way, april 16, 2001(Im hoping the guitar was actually completed on my birthday, april 16th is also the day I bought it in 2002), anyway I was a little surprised to see the stamp on the neck joint that sai ERG 570 and Im wondering is this supposed to be like this? I havent had any problems with the neck and I know they are identical, but you think they would designate them differently. Is there a difference for example in the quality of the old 700 series necks and the 500 series? ALSO Just to add, and maybe rich can help me with this, once I took the neck off when I use the whammy bar the neck pops a little bit. The bolts are as tight as they go, and the necks on perfectly straight. Do I just need to let the neck settle? after ive taken it off?
