Project Skolnick-Stein RG765

Well its been a while since i sold off my RG765DY. I have been really missing that "reverse headstock Sharktooth fretboard" look. Ive had this Skolnick 540PII neck lying around because i havent been able to find a 540PII 24fret body for it. So i decided to build me a Frankenstein RG765. I shall call it SKOLNICK-STEIN!

1. Got my hands on a RG 560 body. fill the middle cavity with a block of wood.
2. Routed the 560 neck pocket to accept the Ibanez Skolnick Neck. this neck doesnt fit on a Square heel body or an AANJ body. So i had to pull out the router and make precise cuts.
3. Just assemble it together and throw in some EMGs. Now we have SkonickStein.

That is awesome. Just the sort of beast that the guys on SSSO are always crying out for

And that white pearl/maple board neck looks awesome, I don't think I've ever seen one of those before!!!

Very cool and honestly way more functional than a real 540P since there's no odd lower horn getting in your way.
