New Project underway - Ibanez AM777VLNGNT LOL

Ok, so what the hell is a AM777VLNGNT you ask???? well, today in the mail arrived my very broken American Master from Scott Vanderwall. *The headstock is busted off and the fretboard is toast, so, while in the process of removing the fretboard, it hit me, I'm gonna turn this into the ultimate Jem!!!! so, what it will become is the AM777VLNGNT, american master 777 vine loch ness green neck thru! LOL
I figured, why not? *Hey, it will be kewl, and everyone wants a neck thru Jem right!?

Well, I'll keep ya posted with the progress!!!

Well seemingly so, apart from me and Mr.Vai of course But what I do want to see is this refurbishment done I thin kyou're work is great and I look forward to the pics of your latest project The real question in my mind is will it be as cool as your pink Universe !?!?! IMHO you've got a long way to go to top that baby as far as customisation of an Ibanez goes

I won't say "don't do that to an AM" but I do have one comment.

How about maybe a transparent green instead of just paint. It'd be a shame to cover up that pretty wood.

Just a thought.

That would be an intresting combination.
I'm in favour of a transparant kinda look too. Maybe a transparant swirl? I just saw those on Herc's site a couple of days ago, looked stellar. With a nice piece of wood underneath it, I guess that would look smashing..

Anyway, Good luck bringing that AM back to life.

Well, here is the thing about a trans color. *First the break in the neck was very bad, a trans finish would look bad on that portion. *Secondly, The top on this guitar, IMO is awful. *It has the nice quilt on the outside edges, but the middle where the neck goes through is a piece of birdseye and the 3 pieces together look terrible. *The headstock was broken completely off the neck at the 3rd fret, that is why *I had to pull the fretboard. *I agree that a trans finish would look nice, if it was a nicer top. *But, it could just be me, I personally don't like wood tops anyway, but this one to me is particularily ugly. *Maybe I'm bad, oh well, hehehe, my mind could change by that point anyway.

Ah, I didn't know it had a crappy top. Never seen the thing.

If it's ugly, by all means cover the bastage up.
