that looks awsome!
I just finished scalloping my RG320DX from 12-24. i'm so happy i did!
i was little nervous till i started smoothing things out with the 0000 whool then the lemon oil just flipped a switch, made it match the rest of the neck
Glad to see you are also rocking out the JSX! that is my favorite head, ive had it for 6 years now and it still surprises me with the tone!!
I was scared at first too. The wood just looks all dry and basically like crap. Like you said though, it just needs a little love and some lemon oil, and you're back in business.
I freakin' love my JSX, I recommend it to everyone. I've had mine for about 2 years. The active eq on the gain channels is way beyond awesome for dialing in tones. Do you run yours with EL34's (I do)? I've been wanting to try some KT77's in there for awhile now. I was going to get the set from eurotubes with the high gain ECC83S's. My currents tubes just won't die
hey id really recomend putting a better bridge in there. a floyd rose special would be very good if you dont want t shell out a lot of money. i put a gotoh on my 350 and its great. only thing i may do to my 350 is scallop 21-24, though i may try it on my rg321 first, its kinda my test guitar. on that one i shaved away the neck joint and its amazing now hehe
Yeah, I've thought about putting a legit trem in it. I have it blocked right now so I can change tunings without the headache. If I ever do upgrade it, though, I'd find a used Lo Pro or Edge Pro. I don't skimp on guitar stuff, I get what I want, or I don't get it.
It can be a little daunting at first to scallop a guitar, but it's not so hard. Once that file scrapes the first bits of wood off, though, there's no turning back. Scalloped frets are awesome for bending and vibratos. They just ring out so clear and are effortless. At first I did 20-24, a few months later I did the rest just for the strings bends.
