Unfortunately not. I don't have any of them with me right now and the closest distance between two of them is about 2,000 miles.

Yes, the non-pickguard arrangement seems generally better - and the models correspondingly more expensive...
My JEM-FP came with a pickguard and I tossed it. Same pickups as my other RG's but definitely fatter.

That seems to be a third configuration, where the pickguard doesn't have pickups and switches mounted on it, but just provides protection.

Original pickguard had the pickups mounted to it but I did a bypass and removed the pickguard.

Re: String Height, Neck Angle, Pick Guard

So, if anyone has a pickguard RG, how high are your strings above the pickguard, near to the bridge ?

Anyone ?

My 1991 RG550 is about 10mm next to the trem post on the bass side.

Re: String Height, Neck Angle, Pick Guard

Anyway.., I've picked this one up again, having been playing various other RGs; and I want to have a go at sorting out the various issues.

First is the neck angle.

Is there anything I should know before unbolting the neck, and having a look at the pocket, joint, etc ?
