I know I post alot of stuff on this forum but I seriously need your guys' help on making some decision regarding a restoration project of my 2000 JS100 I bought. Heres the damage already on it
-cracks, dings, dents, belt marks on the finish
-neck plate is cracked and warped
-knobs are loose, electronics are damaged pickups are fine
-damage to the wood near the tremolo
-bad tremolo, warped around the bar, fine tuners are jammed
-screws/mounting holes are too big making the screws loose
-the strap pins are not the original
-the satin finish on the neck has turned glossy
I was thinking...
-refinish the body in original color (black)
-new pots and knobs
I need your help with...
-Where do I get an Ibanez Prestige Neckplate ?
-what kind of trem do you guys recommend? original is low trs 2 I was thinking GOTOH FLOYD, or the japanese Takeuchi TRS-Pro or the Takeuchi 101, not the OFR
sorry the post is so long lol
