77BRMR with Vine

I got this idea after finding a picture on this site by one of the moderators. Can't remember who did it first, maybe Mob or Jim777.

Then I found this link:
http://jimmynjapan.blogspot.com/2009_05_01_archive.html
and the guy on the blog had the same idea as the mentioned moderator here and convinced me it was the right way to go.

Anyway I swapped the neck on a BRMR with a VBK model, it looks so much better.
You can see the original with dots here:



and the newly modded neck here:



Not sure why this model didn't come with a vine inlay, it suits it down to the ground.

Re: 77BRMR with Vine

i owed one of those and thought the same thing, but the guitar was a nightmare! the bridge was always coming out of tune and i brought it to my tech at least 4 or 5 times and then the mirror top actually started to come up! it litterally started to pull out of the lower horn near the binding. but the guitar played and sounded awesome, and its sooo cool lol
