Re: Some Confusion about my 1989 RG760s, any help appreciated
The first one definitely is the 'regular' neck joint for a pre-1994 RG model, the so-called 'Tilt Joint'. The other one has the 'Cutaway Heel' also featured on most pre-1993 JEM models.
It's very hard to get some hard figures on this, but I do know that some RG700 series models (or even more) did get a cutaway heel, maybe even when they actually shouldn't have (production 'mistake'?). The only one I ever saw pictured in an Ibanez catalog with such a neck joint is a RG770 Paisley (in the 1990 and 1991 Japanese catalog. Maybe it's something that originally only was featured on Japanese market models.
