HELP! Jem 555 jr

I have a Jem 555 jr that fell on the neck twice, i had to glue it back together
and now my neck kinda has a bow to it, plus a nother little bow on it. Its messed, all i can think of is to sand the frets down so its level again.

Is there anyway i can get a replacement neck for this guitar?

Re: HELP! Jem 555 jr

the way you make it sound, it might be a good idea to chunk it

Re: HELP! Jem 555 jr

for the same price that it would cost you to replace it, you can just have one custom made, and it will look, sound and play 100x better.

TWICE?? Please pardon me, but you didn't learn from the first time??? I know, accidents happen

Lefty's got a good sollution and you can even get a full vine. Just hopefully you learned from the second time or it could get real expensive

+1 plus it can take a long time before you see the new neck from Ibanez.

Re: HELP! Jem 555 jr

I can't see having a new neck built as being any [or much] cheaper than buying a new VWH neck.

My friend got a vine neck from him. The vine isn't nearly as well done as a stock ibanez neck vine.

Re: HELP! Jem 555 jr

After. He received it like, a week ago. The neck itself is excellent. It's just the inlay that isn't that great.

Might just have been his though.
