No.

Its referred to the Standard Neck Joint, or Original Neck Joint.

It was the neckjoint used on all the RG series from 1987-1993. The RG line got the AANJ starting in 1994.

Its basically the same as the JEM's neckjoint, except the neck joint is recessed all the way around, and not just on one side.

Just like them all.

ALL the old RGs were like that.


Thats what I was saying, instead of being recessed flat, its only a half-recess, where the bass side is left fully thick, and the treble side is shaved.

Not ALL. The lower lines, like a 1993 RG470, did not have the slant on the heel.

Well, then I'm corrected then.

All the 1987-1992 RGs, and the 1993 RG550 and up models RGs did.



I knew it was sarcasm, the internet doesn't reveal the correct expression or emphasis that I intended with the word "No." It was more of a "noooo. . .he's just messing with ya" rather than a cold "NO!"
