Question about RG body shape

I'm contemplating another project to work on along side my strat project. I'm thinking of doing a bubinga w/ figured ash or maple top, chambered body, hardtail RG. I don't have an RG template and was thinking of picking up a cheap Gio RG body to make the template.

My question is do the Gio RG's have the same overall dimensions as the regular RG's or have the horns & body contures been modified any?

Re: Question about RG body shape

Hi. Iīm not shure if Gio is the same shape and size but i have a picture of a Jem body, i think i got it here somewhere. I can give you the right dimentions of one of my rgīs body so you can increase the image to the right size.

LOL! Now that's funny!

Thanks for the image, that'll help. I just picked up an older model RG170 off the Bay of e for $60 including shipping. It looks a little rough cosmetically but will work perfectly for my purposes. I'll use the image you posted to double check the contures and make a template. Then I have an idea for a nice project with it too.
