RG necks - mixing and matching

I found someone who's selling a RG550 AANJ neck and I thought it'd make an interesting project when combined with some hardtail RG body. I was wondering if the AANJ RG necks are a "one size fits all" kind of deal or not? I digged around with the forum search a bit and some people mentioned the neck radiuses may be different. In the case of RG550 Wizard vs. RG321 Wizard II that's true, 430mm vs. 400mm, respectively.

What kind of problems would that radius difference cause, if any? If I understand correctly, the new neck would fit in the pocket just as well and the four bolts would align properly, but there may be some hassle with string alignment or something?

By the way, can anyone guesstimate what a neck like that is really worth? Obviously it depends on the condition as well, but it has a RW fretboard and it's apparently somewhat new since it has got the AANJ.

Many thanks in advance.
