Premium neck hole location

Hi All

Does anyone know if the neck holes on the premium necks match either the japanese necks or the indo standard necks?

ive got a few premium necks, for example RG721 and RG921, and ive seen an S521 body available, which i'd likely sand down and fit a swanky veneer.

Are the necks likely to fit straight away? or am i likely to need to re-drill the neck?

Re: Premium neck hole location

The holes will likely need to be doweled and re-drilled, nothing hard. The heals may be an issue depending on the body. You may need to shave a couple mm out of the sides of the neck join.
