Here's another project I recently finished. This is a 540R
body mated with a rare maple fretboard Ultra neck
. Apparently, although the 540R never appeared with a maple board in the U.S. catalogs, there were a few sold here. This neck was one of my very first auction buys back in 2002. At the time, I just wanted a maple board neck and didn't realize what an oddball it was. I ditched the lock nut and replaced it with a fabricated piece of maple notched to accept a regular nut. This neck was on another project for awhile, but it's much happier back liiving on a 540R. Perfect fit: no shims necessary and it plays great.
Other custom features on this project are the "Jewel Green" paint (sort of reminiscent of the JS90 finish), chrome hardware, LoPro Edge trem, locking tuners and HSH pickup config. The pups are a Fred, Dimarzio Virtual Vintage 2.2 single, and an IBZ F1 in the neck. Still deciding if the F1 will stay.
I'm pretty happy with this. I'm a big fan of all things Radii, and this one is so unusual that it fills a special niche.
