Hmmm... I'm trying to dodge any cavity work.

An edge pro would go right in correct?

Oh I do like it. I like it a lot! I just mainly have a problem with the bridge. I'd love to get a Floyd on it.

It feels bigger because it *is* bigger. The RG350 ships with a Wizard II neck, while the RG550 had an original Wizard profile. The original Wizard was thinner and flatter then the WizII.

Re: RG350MYE neck/bridge fit question

That's what I thought. I was under the impression most MII and MIJ RG's would fit almost any MIJ AANJ Prestige neck. The exception of course being S-Series necks; fitting only S-series, and Jem's which are only Jem fitted...someone else mentioned MIK fitted guitars which may have slightly bulkier heels on the actual neck (not the body...) But I have never dissected a MIK guitar, just played them.

I figured if anything, a MIJ prestige neck might sit a little lower in the cavity than a MII and might take a small spacer if anything...but that may be it. My PGM301 and MII 350DX have identical bolt holes (but the 350DX's neck top comes over higher than the PGM's...) I've also never put my PGM neck on my 350DX...

Prestige AANJ will fit the neck cavity but the holes don't match. One hole is way off and the other three are about half a hole off. You will have to fill and re drill the neck. A team j craft Pestige neck,the ones with the two thin dark stripes are slightly wider and will not fit without widening the neck pocket. The amount you have to remove is about the thickness of the two dark stripes and may just be some paint has to be filed off the body. I've done this once and will never do it again .

The quick answer is "most likely."

I've got my RG2020x here next to my son's brand new RG350DX. Aside from some minor shaping, the bolt holes appear as though they'd line up perfectly. I'm not in the mood to pull a neck swap in the interest of proving myself wrong, so your mileage may vary. I'll just say that it seems promising that a prestige neck swap is doable.

I'm curious now... I'm gonna check for sure when my buddy gets his 750 in a few days.
