what is THIS?!

Thought it was an RT for a second, but I dont know of an RT model without a pickguard! It looks like an RX, but the shape is definitely RG here O.o

Looks like an RX neck on an RG170 body.

That wouldn't work though, those are 24 fret, the scale would be way off.

Re: what is THIS?!

Based on the fret at the very end of the fretboard, I'd guess it was originally a longer neck which has been sawn off. I've never seen a stock Ibanez with a fretboard with absolutely no wood after the last fret.

I bet it was one of these, filed or sawn down to fit the neck humbucker. That's not to say that it's going to intonate properly...

I am sure it is an RX neck on an GRGM modded body

Looks like an EX170MV with the headstock refinished.
