New Custom Neck

All right, well I'm having a new custom neck done for my 1989 RG550. It needs a refret, so I decided that for the money, I could just get a new neck. It's an all black, maple fretboarded RG by the way. To tell you the truth, I have too many maple fretboarded guitars, so I know for a fact I'm going with an ebony board.

Now the question is, what should I do custom/color wise? I'm thinking of going with neon green dots, PUP's, knobs, and logo for that UV7BK look. OR I could the same scheme with blue. I don't know though.

Any ideas, suggestions?

Re: New Custom Neck

Howabout some white pyramids ala UV7PWH, for different? And perhaps some white pups and knobs to match. Not sure where you would get the white 'mids, I've only seen the colored ones on the bay. I think it would be pretty cool though.

Re: New Custom Neck

That would look cool. Hmm, decisions, decisions.

Can anyone vouch for Legacy One's neck work?

Just go with Chris Woods. His work is much better quality and isn't much more in price.

Re: New Custom Neck

Yeah. I'm thinking about going with an ebony board with Blue LED's. I would change the pickguard to a chrome/mirror guard and install DiMarzio Chrome Top pickups.

I don't know though...If I were to do that, the price would significantly be increased.

Re: New Custom Neck

keep with the all black theme...small offset dots (maybe some kind of dark abalone or something) with all black hardware (don't forget the pole pieces!) would be sweet.

i am a sucker for pyramids. some abalone ones with a dark mirror pickguard could look pretty good.

Hmm, I've never been a big fan of pyramids, but your all black idea sounds pretty cool.

Re: New Custom Neck

I'm not that good at photoshop, especially the chrome, but here's my attempt at a reverse headstock version of what I want possibly.

Green goes well with ebony-boarded black guitars =)

Re: New Custom Neck

How much does he charge for a basic custom neck like 24 fret Wizard II style neck in maple with black dots?
