Neck marking ID?

I've got this Ibanez neck here, evidently from 1990 (F006999). The markings on the neck (which my POS Gateway camera just would not capture) say "WALRJ-T24" . I had expected it to say "RG-750" , like an RG normally does (My other 750's, 760's and 770's all said RG-750, and my 550 says RG-550).
Also, if you can tell from the pics, the holes have been filled and redrilled, and a quarter inch of the neck has been filed off to accomodate a non-Ibanez pocket.

Any thoughts on the markings?




thanks folks,

jim

Re: Neck marking ID?

Both my 88 and 89 RG7xx guitars have this on the neck heel. The late 80's 540 Raduis and Saber necks I've seen on **** have had something similar as well.

Based on Rich's info the bunch of times this has come up, and the slightly different codes on other necks:

WALRJ-T24 = Wizard(Profile) Angled(Headstock) Locking(Nut) Rosewood(Fretboard) Jumbo(Frets)- Teeth(Inlays, every neck I've seen with the T has the Sharkteeth) 24(Number of frets)

Re: Neck marking ID?

Dont understand then, my radius had "WALRJ", just generic stamping job?

For those that dont know, radius guitars dont have wizard necks.

Re: Neck marking ID?

What does the letter G mean stamped to a neck? I have two twenty-one fret Ibanez necks taken off of 540s or s540 or 540 sabre guitars, whatever they're called. one says :

(in red) G (in black) WALRI-T

I think this one is ebony with sharkstooth inlays and fully bound.

The other:

(in red) H (in black) WALRI-R(then in pencil?) t

This one is reverse headstock with rosewood fretboard and dots, no binding.
