Re: ADVICE ON REPLACEMENT NECK FOR MY JEM777SK, PLEASE!
I currently have my DY rg550 neck at Et guitars getting the pyramid inlays done, so I am expecting a great job from et...
Lets do the math... Inlay work and new fingerboard cost $270 plus the actual wizard neck itself with the DY headstock. I reckon approximatly worth around $400 to $500
a Brand new Jem replacment neck, should cost around $700 to $800, considering a new Jem from the 80's in brand new condition will be around $2500 to $3500
And we are talkin about a square heel neck joint, even harder to find then the Jem vwh, which costs around $800 to 1K to buy brand new... and they arent as rare as a Jem FP with the green vine inlays etc...
I dont think its pricey at all..... Personally I like Wizard necks over Jem necks, but having one made and having the original is personal preference..
eitherway mine will sell because its only worth what its worth to the buyer...and it seems a few people want it. for that price
good luck. I'll post a thread on my neck from Et guitars when its done
