HELP ME CHOOSE THE RIGHT BODY FOR THIS NECK
I think this could be the right place for my question, coz I didn't get any response from the guys in Other Ibanez Guitars (including Premiums).
I have a RG170 neck with 24 frets, dot inlays, maple on maple, jumbo frets, normal 42 mm plastic nut and square heel/ not AANJ (it's funny coz Ibanez Wiki states that it's a AANJ joint neck - please someone clarify this).
I'd like to find a replacement Ibanez body (not necessary RG170) that would take this 24 fret/square heel neck without too many mods, if possible.
I'd like to set it up to look/play like Andy Timmons guitar (non floyd, H/S/S).
I was gonna fit it into the strat body but problem is that this neck has 24 frets and I would have to route neck pocket on the body to make it 25.5" scale or shift the bridge routing a bit closer towards the neck (no way).
Also the neck would reach the neck pickup pocket which I don't want to lose.
Could you suggest me an Ibanez or replacement body that I can fit this 24 fret neck in without too many mods?
Do you know of anything there available on ebay or privately?
I'm in Adelaide, Australia (zip 5011) so if you have something could you please give me price plus postage cost to me?
