Cool Re: I'm building a custom JEM...

Looking for the Same here.

wikipedia has some on "Headstock", but no dimensions.

Post a note if you get hold of some detailed specifics.

Its kind of hard to give dimensions of something with that many angles. I recommend you buy or borrow a neck and duplicate it. All RG 5xx and Prestige models have the same headstock as the JEM.

Find a picture that is as straight-on as possible, and blow it up until the nut measures right. There you go.....

Re: I'm building a custom JEM...

Best if someone could take a high resolution Picture of their JEM (6 or 7 string) headstock straight on (perpendicular) with a RULER next to it - or a transparent ON the head -, then you get the scale correct and can do a 1:1 print, or calculate all angles relative to the ruler.

No fisheye zoom though, you want no distortion...100-200mm maybe.

Put it on Photobucket or somewhere where it can be seen by all.

Would be Much appreciated.
