Left handed AANJ? How are you going to line that bad boy up for right handed?

Pretty sure that's a square heel neck, which for obvious reasons would work fine. Think you are going to have some work to do on an AANJ, but I could be wrong. I've seen several posts on here saying it would be a big pain.

Oh, no I get what you are saying now. Nah, Im not too worried about it. It will fit fine. I will contour it to match the radius of the AANJ, thats no big deal for me at all. Check my rg7321 thread to see how I do that

That was mine but I traded it to typhoon a few years ago towards my PGM301. And yes, that IS a square heel neck.

Re: PGM project

Contouring the one side that stops short of the AANJ won't be a problem. The OTHER side will probably have a big gap between the neck and the pocket.
