Post Old neck joint RG question

This'll be a longshot, but is anyone aware of any model RG with the old block style neck joint and a fixed bridge?

Thanks in advance (I have a feeling the answer is no since the old neck joint was very 80's... as was having a Floyd equipped guitar).

Re: Old neck joint RG question

I asked the same question about a month ago, and I have found no such model.

I do have an old 760 neck that needs a refret, so I think I am going to convert it over to a fixed nut and have a body made for it.

Re: Old neck joint RG question

Apologies for not finding your thread and starting a new one...

There's a guy in the classifieds section with such a guitar body (which you replied to) that looked interesting, but I'd need to know more about it. I have an RG565 with basically the most incredible neck ever, but the body is beat to sh*t and through the finish, I can actually see the body was made out of four separate pieces of wood with copious amounts of filler.

I'd explore the custom body route as well, but it seems like most shops that do it have ridiculous turn around times with questionable attention to detail (or they're just backlogged like crazy, customer gets annoyed, shop rushes the job just to get it out the door, etc.)

Re: Old neck joint RG question

you could also look for a rt650/rt450/rt150. while these guitars are technically not fixed bridge, they do have standard strat style trems which are easy to screw down to the body and for all intents and purposes become 'fixed'. but the neck profile on these guitars is thicker than your standard wizard or even wizard 2. they feel more in line with the js necks, very strat-like.
