Re: What Year is this RG1527 Body?
The only way to get close (and to get the right neck) is to measure the width of the neck pocket.
The 1527 had a 66mm wide (67.?mm pocket) Ultra Prestige-7 neck in '03 and '04. From '05-'08 it had a 68mm wide(69.?mm pocket) UP-7 neck.
'09 and later got a 68mm Wizard-7 Prestige in both rosewood and maple board versions ('09 RG1527M).
more than likely you need the 68mm neck from '05-'09, but you need to measure to be positive.
