Just wondering if the hardware (screws) that mount the neck to the body of a tilt joint heel RG are different to the ones for the square heel models eg. Pre AANJ RG470.

I'm pretty sure the location of the holes are the same but are the screws different lengths and the heads angled according to the tilt?

Hope this makes sense. Reason I ask is i have a 92 RG470 with a superb neck and am considering a nicer body like an earlier generation Jem or simar vintage RG550+ to attach the neck to.

Great info. Just one final question. Apart from the mixed length screws, is there anything else required like special washers, ferrules, neck plate or spacers to ensure the screws go straight up or is the heel tilt angle a non issue?

I bought a sweet old RG570 body to replace the emerald green body on my beloved RG470. I also ordered black knobs and pickup rings to give it the full Wesley Snipes treatment. All I need now is those shorter AANJ mounting screws mentioned earlier in the thread and jack cavity cover and I'm in business. Wouldn't mind an Ibanez machined neck plate if I can find one.
