Swapping RG necks?
I own a 2008 RG2550z and an RG1421.
I like both necks but I really like the 2550z neck, it's somehow just got a much nicer thickness and overall feel compared to the RG1421. I really like the hardtail of the 1421 so thought it might be possible to Frankenstein it and combine the best of each guitar.
I was wondering how feasible it would be to swap them around? It seems the 2550z has a Wizard Prestige neck as does the 1421.
Is it really as simple as just plugging them into each other...? What about the nut differences?
The 1421 is a hardtail. If one uses a hardtail bridge with a locking nut (2550z has the Edge Zero) would one lock the nut? Or would it still be usable unlocked? What are other nut options for hardtails?
I've never swapped or even taken off a neck on any of my guitars so any info is appreciated.
