Just picked up this authentic? 7BSB neck from ebay. It arrived today and looks real unless someone here can say otherwise. I am thinking about making a jem body from this Checkerboard wood blank. Looks like it can truly be an industrial motif - well to me anyways.
Or perhaps a Jem copy body and I can go nuts with it with burning and staining. However the match to the neck might be off.
Now I do have a concern about the 7BSB neck finish which is just a stain. Can this be clear coated? I hate to think how the weather is going to effect a neck with no finish and just a stain. I am surprised many have not mentioned stability on a stained only 7BSB before.
This link has all the pictures of the 7bsb neck and checkerboard body.
So this is a project, any suggestions on what scheme I can have the body painted if I don't go with the checkerboard body? I am always open to suggestions.
