I couldn't resist and made a photoshop mockup... in Loch Ness Green . And it may indeed be worth the hassle.

See for yourself. It took me ages to form those horns. Looks surprisingly good.

Let me introduce... the JS24!



Just FYI, here's the pic I started out with, so you can see that both cutaways were widened:



Edit: forgot the fretboard markers.

I think the proportions are totally off when you deepen the cutaways like that.

I'll second that. It came out totally how I expected it to be.

Hm.. I think the proportions are nowhere near as 'off' as on a generic RG body.

But, it's all about preferences. I personally think the design rules.

Come on, someone please back me up here

Don't jack with the cutaways or change anything at all. Just line up the 24th fret in the same exact location that the 22nd is right now, and then move the bridge and bridge humbucker forward the appropriate distance. It's the same basic thing PRS does. The body outline is the same but the bridge and bridge pickup are moved towards the nut, since the neck stretches out farther. I still think it wouldn't look right because when looking at the body overall, the pickups/bridge area will be more crowded than before. That's why I like the look of 22 fret PRS's too. I also like the sound of a 22 fretter, on pure looks I like it better too.

Re: js + 24 fret neck?

WOW this is the biggest news to happen on a JS since....well ever !

It'll be similar to the cutaway on the 24 fret Saber I guess so not too different. I wouldn't imagine that Satch would want to change any more of the guitar than he has to. So shortening the scale lenth or moving the trem would probably be out.

Time will tell. Not sure about the HS config though. Chances that I'll buy one .......100%

Bet's on the colour ? I'm guessing Daphne Blue

Re: js + 24 fret neck?

I would imagine one current thread is enough. No need to resurrect an ancient thread. I agree that it is exciting news though.
