Neck Pocket on GIO's

Hi all!!

Anybody knows if the GIO's neck pocket are compatible with Fender type necks??
I know pre-AANJ Ibanez were...

Everything fine on the guitar. Actually neck is really decent and I like it.

But you don't know when you may want to bolt on a new body or some crazy stuff alike.

We're talking 25.5" scale and 22 frets.

Yeah, I know that is to make a boob job to a granny but old guys wouldn't call it a bad thing.

Thanks for the info!!

FENDER necks?

Dude if you're talkign about the GRXs or GRGs with those sharktooth inlay necks... KEEP THEM ON THERE! If you chuck a strat neck on it that'll stuff it up.

Why would it stuff the guitar up? I personally wouldn't waste the money, although you can get some cheap Mighty Mite Fender licensed necks if you really wanted too. Mighty Mite make great gear for the price.

Would you rather a maple neck with a bunch of black dots or a rosewood fretboard with sharktooths?

I personally reckon you should leave as is.

Not everyone likes sharktooth inlays.

Maybe that's why the OP wants to change, maybe not.

Re: Neck Pocket on GIO's

Considering the cost of most high quality new necks it really isn't worth it putting it on a GIO. Even the GRG170s (which don't hold a torch to the Old RG170s in my opinion) aren't really a good enough guitar to go swaping stuff round on.

Well, I suppose it isn't an issue of quality but more than the neck is pretty much worth the cost of the guitar itself so why not just save up a little and buy a better guitar? Better defined as one with the specs you want?
