Re: RG Neck Joint Question
Are you sure that is what you want? I'm asking because I have seen a number of RG170 necks (with the heel as in your posted image) on which people unsuccessfully tried to mount them on a traditional strat body. That throws off the intonation by effectively moving all the frets further from the bridge and thereby lengthening the scale, making intonation impossible.
However, when you say "24 fret guitar body that has a more normal squared neck joint" you indicate that you are probably recognizing the difference between a true "normal" strat heel and one (like the RG170 bodies) which is cut much deeper into the body to allow for an elongated heel on the neck. Hopefully you understand what I'm referring to because these are not interchangeable.
To the question -- the only 24-fret necks I am aware of that have the full extended heel with non-locking nut are indeed the RG170 and some RG120s. However, both of those models changed to AANJ after a couple of years so there aren't many options. I have used RG170 necks on two strat-style projects but I had to route off the extra wood to properly fit the body pocket and keep the scale + intonation where it needed to be. That process converts the neck into the extended fretboard style, as in your "tilt joint" pic.
