RG necks (300, 400, and 500)
I have been looking for a “donor” RG for a project, and I hate the idea of parting out a perfectly good RG5xx just to have a decent neck. Now of course I get an Edge trem, but lets focus on the neck for a minute.
What exactly are the differences between the MIK RG necks (3xx,4xx) and the MIJ necks? I understand that there are some finishing details, but in terms of basic construction, what if anything is different? I see RG 4xx guitars selling for what some people are getting for just a RG neck! I guess I want to know at what point the quality difference is too much. Should I stick with a 500, or can I get the same basic neck on a 400 or even 300 series?
