Collection Update Modded JCRG8620 Spalted Maple

Well I just got my JCRG8620 Spalted Maple. Great guitar, the tops are beautiful on these guitars. I remember Rich had an all maple J-Custom sometime ago and I loved the way that guitar looked. So, I tried to recreate it using the RG8620 and my RG8570M VV. Let me know what you think.

Stunning !!! But even more so with its original TOL inlay and spalted maple headstock imho !!! Sorry !!!! Now, an RG8570 NT with an RG3270M DBK neck would look the biz !!!!! You could also get the headstock refinished in natural too. And gold hardware of course...................and cream pups..........!!!!!!!!

Nice. I almost fell over when I saw the neck for sale.

You scored the first of 12-15 of those made.

Why don't you marry off the body & neck remaining?

Re: Collection Update Modded JCRG8620 Spalted Maple

IMO that's just wrong. I can't imagine the flamed VV head looking right with the spalted top, not like the spalted head would. If you wanted a maple board that bad pay a luthier to put one on. Would cost you 1/2 of what you'll loose parting them out and you'd have 2 guitars instead of one.

Good point.... I think I would have had a new maple neck made though. That way the guitar could always go back to orig. parts, and you'd still have your fav. custom made neck to use on the next project and the two orig. guitars. I will say I do like the spalted maple.... it's beautiful!
