Possible bodies RG AANJ neck?

I have an RG360 with an after-market neck of unknown provenance. I love the neck but would prefer a hardtail so am looking for an alternative body to put it on.

What are the options? Is it only RGs? I know other models have the AANJ thing, but with a different number of frets so presumably won't work. I'm not looking to spend much (any ) money on it so GRGs can be on the shortlist.

And if I don't worry about the AANJ shape, would an RG neck fit in older models - or even non-Ibanez models?

Thanks!

Re: Possible bodies RG AANJ neck?

The RG360 is a fairly rare model:

By far the simplest and cheapest option for you is simply to block the trem turning it into a hardtail.

Use an accurately shaped block of hard wood to wedge in behind the trem, then remove the springs and wedge another accurately shaped block of the same wood in front of the trem, now replace the springs to stop the claw from rattling about. Voila, a hardtail with fine tuners.
Remove the tremolo arm and the locking pads from the locknut. Keep the parts safe so you can put it back to standard if you want to sell it.

A bit of simple woodwork using any hardwood offcut will take far less time and cost you next to nothing as well as being fun to do as long as don't cut yourself making the wood blocks!

My mistake, it's actually a 370 not 360 RG370DX (2003?2004) | Ibanez Wiki | FANDOM powered by Wikia although I imagine your blocking comment still applies.

Absolutely, the Edge Pro 2 is a low profile design and will make for an even better hardtail once blocked.

I have a 1988 360 - owned since 1991. Didn't think there were any still around. Only mod is a Tone Zone in the bridge, still very sweet to play, though it feels tiny compared to my UV71P.
