Re: Customing my Js100 : Silver Surfer inside

I totally changed the pickups, and used a rotary switch like this one



Then, I decided to build my own neck : ebony fretboard without inlays, flammed maple/wenge/flammed maple for the neck.
I still need to clearcoat it, but I need more time.

Nice job on both the silver surfer and the neck! Is that a flaw in the wood on the back of the neck? Either way you did a great job.

Thank you.

As for the flaw, there was a knot in the middle of my blank. It only appeared when I glued the parts of the neck and began to file it.

Thank you
I've already built my own guitar, inspired by the Jem, but with a maple fretboard and an ebony tree of vine

The graphic looks cool, its kind of more in a Joe style like the Black Dog guitar! Awesome work.
