This question is pretty in-depth so just stick with me here...

A while back a called up Warmoth to see if any of their custom necks would fit my Ibanez RG2EX1. Specifications:

http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Ibanez-RE2EX1-Electric-Guitar?sku=519783

I wanted to get a Jackson style reversed headstock neck for it but they told me their necks were not compatible with my guitar. After looking on their website for more details I noticed that the contoured heal of my guitar put the screw in a position that collides with the gotoh side-adjustment mechanism for the truss rod. I get that much. My question is as follows: would it be possible to order the left handed version of the same neck since lefty versions do not come with the side-adjustment mechanism? If you need to see what I'm referring to visit this link:

I know that I would need to order the version without the holes drilled in it if this idea were to actually work out. The neck would just be a little fatter at the place were it would normally be carved down to fit the heel (not a big deal since my hands are rather big)

Furthermore, I was wondering if I ordered the 24 fret version of this neck would it still line up properly? I'm having my doubts about this because I'm thinking that the 24 fret Warmoth necks have a piece of the fretboard that hangs over the underside of the neck so that it can be fit on a Fender that typically has a 21 or 22 fret neck.

I know I should probably call Warmoth back and ask them myself but I was wondering if any of you customization gurus have ever dealt with a similar situation and had any advice for me. Thank you in advance. I'm trying to turn this mediocre guitar into my own one of a kind instrument.

those necks are 22 fret necks, yours is a 24 if its an RG.

Thus you need a 24 fret neck with the proper scale to bolt back to your body.

Warmoth necks wont work on a 24 fret scale guitar, even if you get the 24 fret version...there 24 fret version hangs the fretboard over the body a bit thus keeping a 22 fret scale neck.

Look on ebay for a replacement RG neck, they are everywhere
