I'm an Ibanez fan and a "beginner luthier"
. I've had a wizard 25,5" scale length 24fret neck laying there waiting for a body. Putting it side by side with a JEM neck, it's identical. So i ordered a raw basswood body from ebay, which looked so much like an RG body in the pictures, that i completely ignored that the title said "JS
style" and assumed that it must be a copy of an RG but of course it wasn't the case.
The selling page said that it needs a 25,5" 24 fret neck. So i received the body and i tried to fit the neck in the pocket and noticed that the neck sits about a centimeter further from the bridge than in my RG and JEM guitars. Measured from the 24th fret to the saddle where the string is attached. I looked at some pictures of 24 fret JS
guitars which are advertised as 25,5" scale length. I compared them with a JEM picture and the neck really seems to be a little further from the bridge in the JS
Is the JS
25,5" 24 fret neck somehow different from the RG/JEM necks or what is the deal in here? Can i fit the neck in to the body without getting a huge intonation problem?
Thank you and sorry.
