I picked this body up from the Capt and finally got all the parts.


Got the neck off the bay and most of the hardware.


Going to put it together first then take it back apart and paint it after all the holes are right..


The headstock shape isn't my fav, I might try to do something with it.

Thinking about doing an amber to cherry burst.

The neck was what I thought was cheap, 90 bucks. It needed a bit of finishing but it was nice and straight.
Here is the link, they did mess up shipping on this one and it took a loooong while to get it.

I agree with you on the headstock Jon! Other than that, that guitar is gonna be INSANE dude! I love it. Here's an idea for the headstock: Shave the tit off

Yes, I've held an edge up on it looking for the best angle to do that but it always ends up crowding the top tuner. The ideal answer is to add a piece to it and reshape it like Erik does building his necks. But, not sure I'm up to that.

Very nice bro great choice for finish too I think that will look great!
As for the hdsk, Changing it is a good choice too! Cut that badboy up and add some ears and make your own design

I've used three of their necks so far and they have all been good.
All of the stuff is from off shore but for the money not bad. On one neck I bought a nut with it and they mounted it for free. One thing though is all of the stuff is for a Floyd. For this neck I found a roller nut that mounts to the Floyd shelf on the neck cause the body is string through.

i know i noticed that...i wanted to stay away from the floyd because they can get expensive but i do have a few licensed floyds laying around so i might just put one of those or buy a gfs floyd(not much better but for $60 you get much better quality)

well as soon as my upcomming expenses clears, ill def buy stuff from them
