That's tough to look at. +1 for Nate Perle. Check out preleguitars001 on the 'bay.

Re: JS6000 Project.......

I actually helped route those holes to make them one even space so you wouldn't have to use some odd shaped piece of mahogany to get them to fit. I know not the best work, but I figured the gaps could be smoothed out and filled in with some wood filler. I'm pretty adamant about keeping the original body. No sense in keeping all original hardware and replacing the whole body. Plus if a PGM can be filled in and converted to a hard tail this can too.... ;o)

Re: JS6000 Project.......

Wow those bodies on Perle are nice.....hmmmm says $240 for a mahogany JS.....wonder how much it would cost to get one finished in blue sparkle?!?!? Anyone have any experience with there bodies...yay or nay? Oh and just to clarify I bought this JS6000 for $300 and it came with all these mods. Not my doing and not my idea........

Re: JS6000 Project.......

I've got a JS6 body that someone put a Kahler in. I iwas going to try to convert it to a Floyd route. Not going to be pretty I'm afraid. I dont have the original neck or hardware tough. just the pickup rings.

We could have swapped and it would have been alittle easier for you. Oh well.

Can I see a picture of the body if you don't mind? Man I wish it was that easy. My wife bought me the guitar so thats another reason why I am insistent on keeping it original as possible. You sure you don't want to get rid of that body?

Re: JS6000 Project.......

Check your PM Scott. Stratoskier is right on though ... Perle may be the best way to go.

We will see. I actually know someone who might be able to do the work for me. My thing is if someone fills it maybe I will just go ahead and have it finished and cleared to hold everything into place, but then again thats more money ;o( Thx man....

Re: JS6000 Project.......

I'd take that off your hands for a fair price, but anyways the most price effective option would be getting a new body... I know how important it is to keep it all original though.

Re: JS6000 Project.......

If you want to fill the hole without any trace with nice mahogany (no woodfiller needed!) you should check out Jay at ntlguitar.com. He has major skills - check out his magic on the work in progress page (Hamer with Kahler rout being filled). He charges about $40 an hour. Highly regarded.

It's a shame nobody's making aftermarket JS bodies yet. A few suppliers have been promising them over the years, but none have come through.
Acording to this source http://joe.emenaker.com/TremStabilizers/ the tremolo no is a no option... but who knows?

Re: JS6000 Project.......

Finally found an original cosmo black bridge! Finally dawned on me to check Yahoo Japan Auctions since that is where I originally got the guitar. Anyway it's paid for and on it's way! Now all I need is a set of the cosmo black tuners. I already asked in a seperate thread what the original part number was for them and I saw Rich has a few sets on his website marked #MB500CK. Are those the same kind that would have come on the JS6000?

Re: JS6000 Project.......

Since the routing on this guitar is going to have to be filled, and if I leave it in the original stained oil finish naturally you are going to notice the work. Personally I don't have a problem with that however now I am toying around with the idea of having the guitar finished. I'm thinking something like the blue one Joe uses now or maybe a heavy blue flake finish. My only real concern besides money is am I going to ruin the tone/sound of the guitar if I decide to go ahead and have it done?
