Will a JEM/RG550 pickguard fit an RT?

I just bought an RT and want to change the pickguard. The pickguards for the JEM and 550 look exactly the same as the one on my RT but I want to make sure before buying one that it will fit properly. Does anyone know for sure?

Thanks!

they will not fit. The lower horn is more rounded off. you will have to get an rt pickguard. I had one made from this guy:

name is adam, nice guy and fast shipping.. good product too. i sent him the template for the rt-150

I just sent him an email to see if he had any photos of a similar design in the black mirror finish. What material did you use? Do you have any photos? Thanks!

Yours looks great! Nice re-fin!!!! Mine is the overseas RT 240VS so I am thinking about getting the mirrored black finish pickguard to compliment the black pickups and sunburst edge. The factory one is like the tortoise style on the 450 in the Ibanez catalog. I can't stand it.
