Replacement Rg neck

alrighty, lookin for a replacement neck for a lefty rg1570 would like to hear what u people have to say about getting one...

heres the guitar in guestion... Rg1570L from '03

heres the damage

neck idea

Something like the necks above...

the neck is a bit damaged on the back, its looked after very well but i think there was a defect in the neck or something and sweat has gotten the better of it and kinda ruined it.. + i hate the jumbo frets, the fretwire is dull big and flat and seem spaced far apart or something, i much prefare the feel of a lp or strats frets, i like a small, tall, thin pointy fret

id love a new new 3 or 5 piece neck with a red vine inlay on a maple fingerboard for it, i reckon the red inlay would look sweet on the maple, and maybe even have a black vine with just red leaves, it would complement the guitar and look great, the red inlay on rosewood wouldnt be as nice i think and the red might not be as clear... i always loved the look of the Bfp's maple neck with coloured vine...

anyways ive been lookin around and sites and luthiers and no idea which place to get one, im pretty sure ill get one online, since the euro is pretty good against the usd and it would cost an arm and a leg to get a neck here....

but not sure which to go with and which ones taking orders at the moment, and will be made in a reasonable timeline with good workmanship and a nice cost etc... ive done a search and reading some other posts but wonder what luthiers people have used recently and would recomend for replacment necks, pros and cons and all that...

Re: Replacement Rg neck

Send the neck to Jaden in the UK, have him sand the back of the neck down to get rid of those spots and then re-clear it, have him pop the old board off and put a all maple (preferably birds eye) vine one with smaller frets. Its as easy as that.

Re: Replacement Rg neck

is Jaden a member here or a luthier shop or what =/

+ the spots are like little dints in there too maybe 2-3mm into the neck itself, the neck is thin enough as is, so i was just gona get a new neck altogether, but dont know where!

Re: Replacement Rg neck

Yeah Jaden rose is in oxford i think, there is a banner at the top of this page which will take you to his site. He can build you a complete neck to your spec, drop him an email and he'll do you a quote. i've not seen his work in the flesh but i'm deffinately sending my neck to him for a bit of work in the future, i've heard nothing but good things about his work.
