I'll take a stab at it!

I think the black one is neck set and the red is deep neck through.

The screw on the black is quite large while the red one is more in line with what a normal strap button would be. Maybe the larger screw is for stability. The deep neck (red) would not need this stability.

Also the scarf joint (where the neck meets the body, right?) seems to be smoother on the red one and black one has some weird lines on the sides...

How'd I do?

The black one is a Jackson RR5... Neck through construction on that baby.
The red one is a deep set neck Fernandes JS 90/100. Both made in Japan btw. About 15 years between the two Rhoads V's.
50% ;)

Oh btw the strap buttons... Black one has standard factory ones on, red one, schaller staplock...

I test-played a 2-pup Grec a few yrs ago, the neck joint was near-invisible
