Re: Old neck joint RG question
Apologies for not finding your thread and starting a new one...
There's a guy in the classifieds section with such a guitar body (which you replied to) that looked interesting, but I'd need to know more about it. I have an RG565 with basically the most incredible neck ever, but the body is beat to sh*t and through the finish, I can actually see the body was made out of four separate pieces of wood with copious amounts of filler.
I'd explore the custom body route as well, but it seems like most shops that do it have ridiculous turn around times with questionable attention to detail (or they're just backlogged like crazy, customer gets annoyed, shop rushes the job just to get it out the door, etc.)
