JS 2400 with Maple Neck Idea

So I was thinking how much I like the idea of a JS with a maple neck.

It looks like the neck joints on the current PGM 300/ 301 and JS2400 are the same, same scale length etc.

So how about a PGM 300 neck on a JS2400 for some reverse headstock, maple neck, matching colour fun?

OK so I don't have either or the money to get such right now but it sounds like a nice combination.

Thoughts?

Although the latest PGM has a square neck heel, to the best of my knowledge, the PGM300 has always had an AANJ.

Simple then, just pick up an RG 565 neck.

Isn't there some mod to the JS neck to allow the pickup to sit closer to the harmonic?

Here's my JS with a maple board (only it's really a Radius):

Nice Radius.

I'm hoping to get my hands around a JS to see how I like the neck. I have room on my wall for 1 or 2 more.

Cheers,
Shane

Such a beautiful guitar. Perfect color of green. Chrome hardware. Maple board.

I actually started coming here after finding that pic from your first posting of it.

Re: JS 2400 with Maple Neck Idea

Jeez -- thanks, guys! I didn't think anyone much liked that one when I first finished it and posted a pic last year. That guitar started life as a very trashed 540R in jewel blue: with black hardware that was heavily corroded, an extra hole drilled for who knows what, lots of dings... I always liked the idea of a green, maple neck JS so that's what it became. Color is Duplicolor Jewel Green with Duplicolor clear on top.

Might be a good idea to intonate it. :P

LOL -- yeah, that was done sometime after the pic was taken. It's dead-on now. But good eyes!

Man -- we really did hijack this thread now, didn't we? It was supposed to be about 24-fret JS, and here we are with our Radii. All the same family in my book! Plus I love that VH Radius.

Re: JS 2400 with Maple Neck Idea

I'll resurrect this thread once I put together my 24 fret JS600! Might take a little while.
