Smile Which neck for my project? (Got the neck - New pics!)

Which one would you prefer? I'd like to get an ebony neck with vine from ET
but for almost the same price I'd get one of J-Customs with rosewood fretboard.
The J-Custom's about one year old.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Got the neck!

Here some pics. Changed the tuners and the saddle to chrome ones. Just to match the edge The body's waiting to be painted....

Hmm.. What I've understood's that it has a "J Craft" stamp in the J-Customs as well, am I right?

Anyway, I'm getting the neck today. Don't wanna wait for a custom neck to be made.

Matthias,
If its an original J-Craft neck, you should just grab it now if its a good price!
We can always help you out later if you have another special project.
Cheers,
ET

Actually. This neck feels far better than the one in my 77FP! Am glad I got this. Amazing to play, though it's ONLY an RG470 body. Stays really well in tune with the Lo-Pro and... Did I mention that the neck's got SO amazing feel to play with!

Can't wait to get the rest of the stuff for this guitar!
