Who can make me a JS-6 Body?

I'm a decent woodworker, but I'm not sure I can make a carved body.

Here is my idea. I want a slightly larger JS-6 style body, and cut for a 7 String hardtail neck I have.

I've had probably a dozen different JS guitars at one time or another, including a Donnie, and the JS-6 has always been my vaforite. I would love a JS-6 (7-String).

So, who these days can do a JS-6 body for me with some tweaks? It's my Birthday this Saturday, so I'm looking to treat myself!

Ask Chris at Mai-Guitar or Nate Perle

Do you have a link/contact for him?

A quick google directs me back to Jemsite where people are bashing his work...so I'd like to research a little, maybe talk to him and see what he says.

Re: Who can make me a JS-6 Body?

chris's link is at the top of the forum.

nate can definitely be contacted through fleabay, but i dont know what the sketch with contacting him on there about stuff which isnt on there is!....if that makes sense?! :S

but having just had a quick look on ibanez wiki, it looks to me like a hard tail s series?! if so, have a look on the bay now, coz im pretty sure theres a freshly cut one by nate for around the $100ish mark!

Re: Who can make me a JS-6 Body?

I can't speak for his work first hand, but Perle was very responsive when I contacted him about making a mahogany js body. At that time he was just making them basswood. I still haven't pulled the trigger as I'm in the midst of other projects. The pictures of the bodies he sells on eBay look pretty darn good to me. He's got a double neck JS style now, so I bet he could do what you're asking. Search for him on eBay or the website is

Re: Who can make me a JS-6 Body?

I was just going to recommend Nate Perle. He did my custom JPM mahogany body, I asked for specifics when ordering. My 2nd one will be coming from him for a very special project.

I have his email if you want it, just let me know, I will PM it if necessary instead of putting it out in public. I do believe that he also can be contacted through his website pretty quickly which was posted above.

Exactly. But, it's flash enabled.

You might want to try that, as it's not really how it works. Besides, who goes back to the forum index when there's a [New Posts] button? LOL (added this to look cool) xD

Refreshed 11 times, all of them showing the Mai guitars banner. Details, but still!
