Has anyone ever tried this? If so, did it work?
Thanks

I had it done on 2 guitars. Yes, it worked. I can't say how it'll hold up over years of playing vs. leaving all the original wood there, but it seems fine for now.

It's been working for Flo (including years of Vai treatment) just great..

hi,

I really like to see this Mod..

maybe i will do too..

The original Joint neck is very bad for high frets access ..I have also an Old Washburn MG400 and the access is much better for a Guitar with a Plate.

cheers

Maybe Brian from universaljems.com can help you, or someone from projectguitar.com forum.

Had it done!


Doesn't look so bad! The only thing that shows it was a squared joint guitar is the old screw hole on the neck. The guy that done the job for me is a luthier called Achiles (maybe you know him, Tubarão) and he could find the exact colour of the guitar =D.

How were your guitars refinished? What did you use to fill the old screw holes?

Just the 2 screws closer to the body. The other ones had to move, but only one filled hole is visible with the guitar assembled.
It's a weird guitar. It is like a RG570 with maple neck and matching headstock. I have never seen any other RG like that. And yes, the neck was re-shaped like those AANJ ones. Don't know if he used the same measurements (thickness, etc), but feels good to my hands.

Cheers!

The guy who did the work refinned it. I filled the one screw hole in the neck with a dowel, wood glue, and a dremel. The new pattern shared 3 of the old holes.

I do it by myself. Don't you know my work yet?

I just use glue and pó-de-madeira. Just like JESTER or anyone.
Um abraço,

They look very very nice. I'm not much into Les Pauls or Zakk Wylde, but the RG copy looks awesome. Very nice job. The access on that cutaway looks a lot better than the Ibanez AANJ. Maybe someday you or Ibanez manufacture guitars featuring Nuno's Stephen's Cutaway joint :P

Mmm... How would that look?

Here's mine:

Actually, the COOLEST joint is on a Yamaha Pacifica. There is no heel at all.

I did it, I call it a Pseudo AANJ, yet I didn't go as far as the other guys here. I merely cut off the part of the heel that digs into your palm. So one screw was relocated and the other 3 are the same as when the plate was on it. It's pretty cool. But I won't do it to my favorite RG 550. I'm afraid of changing it in any way.
