Ibanez custom neck question

Hey guys, I'm thinking of doing a new custom project... And I was wondering if anyone here knows how to do the lights in the neck of the guitar, like Christopher woods did. Any insight or tips would be really helpful

Re: Ibanez custom neck question

i think if you're building from scratch, its gonna be easiest to lay the wiring in the truss rod cavity, glue the leds in place behind the fingerboard, and then solder it together, then glue it down.

i still havent figured out how the custom shops do it to your existing neck without removing the fingerboard!

As far as I know, this is the only one - Sims customs in the UK. (not the discredited American one)


He's done them for Vai and many other guitar legends. Enjoy.
