pre aanj

Hey guys, was wondering what the story is behind some older rgs' having the regular tilt joint while some seem to have a non-tilting tilt joint. Where these only on certain models/years?

Ibanez used square heels into the mid 90s, then switched to AANJ.

EDIT: Oops, I didnt realize they had 2 square heel joints back in the day Thanks Merc

Typically the 5xx series and higher had the tilt joint square heal, and the 4xx series and lower had the standard square heel. The tilt joint was one of the "features" of the upper range of guitars to justify the price difference.

No, there's no difference in the joint. It would be wise to know exactly which model the neck/body came from though............

Not sure exactly what your asking, but all the square heel necks should fit either neck pocket. If you are asking if there were different necks for the different level guitars then yes the neck profile was different depending on which model you were looking at.

There were square Wizard 1's, Wizard II's, Ultra, Viper, Jem, and probably others I am not mentioning.
