Gone Scallopped!!!!!!!!

Hey everyone,

This week I was at the LACS and I decided to make all of my necks on my Ibanez customs scallopped. I'm having the boys scallopped the entire neck!

I first started off scallopping the 21st - the 24th, then 15th-24th, then the 12th-24th. Then I said what the hell, scallop the whole damn thing. See I'm a touch player, I don't choke my neck at all. I'll post some pics in the near future. Have a great day everyone and it was great meeting a bunch of you at NAMM!

YBFAM

Andy

Cool! Scalloped fretboards are very easy to play on. Waitn' for the pics.

It's similar to the death grip you use while you're choking your chicken.

My main guitar is a modified RG 550 with a scalloped neck.
I hardly ever play any of my other RG's anymore.

I'm guessing I'll have to scallop them too!!!!

I prefer a comforting, gentle grip personally

What kind of neck thickness do you have on your 550? I love 17-19 mm Super Witard necks, but i guess you cannot scallop those, since they are very thin already???

i've got an '87 RG550 that i bought with a VERY deeply scalloped fretboard, literally through the inlays and side dots, almost through the whole fretboard. and I have no problems with warping when using 9's

Re: Gone Scallopped!!!!!!!!

That's good to hear... I picked up a beat up RG550 with divots in the fretboard. It looks like someone attacked it with a screwdriver. I'm gonna try scalloping it. How do you all scallop you fretboard? Sand it down or use a file or a dremel?

Two different guides, one for 21-24:

And full neck:

Or you can get one of our trusty sponsors to do t for you for a price.

Re: Gone Scallopped!!!!!!!!

my guitar only has 21 frets, would the 21-24 guide work the same for a 18-21?

I would read over the full scallop guide and follow that one rather than the 21-24, it has more/better information to get you through it.
