Scrappy2... Help me make a CHROMEBOY...

OK, so they too priceless to beat up, and hate to destroy (repaint) one of the JS's... but I want one to play and enjoy...so what to do???

I'll just make one myself from parts taken off the originals.... and I'll post my progress, and lessons learned, online. And I can save some parts separated from their home...

Its for me, so there's no value in this other than I'm saving real Ibanez parts from scrap to remake another work of art that will be enjoyed for years to come, hopefully...

And I could use some help....

First Problem is simple. Ill need a list of the parts I will need:

Neck Section
Neck (frets included..)
Tuners
Locking Saddle(?)
Neck Plate
Screws


Body Section
Body
Electronics Cover
Tremolo Cover
Neck Pick Up
Bridge Pick up
Pickup Hardware
Chrome Strap Lugs
Knobs and Pots
1/4" Jack
Tremolo
Tremolo Arm
Tremolo Hardware (springs, screws, etc)

What did I miss?

Thanks....

Necks...

Are they all interchangeable?

Is the locking nut "saddle" specific to the tremolo or all interchangeable?
