Question: Drilling a Newer Ibby Neck for Rear-Mount Locking Nut
I have an '07 RG1527RB that's pretty beat up, frets and fretboard played to hell, etc. so I'm having a local guitar builder give it a complete makeover: new paint, fretboard swap (rosewood for maple), and all-chrome hardware.
That last part...
So, the RG1527 neck has the top-mount locking nut. I've always preferred the rear-mount version, plus the rear-mount version was all I could find in chrome. Kind of a win-win.
Any pointers (or schematics/blueprints out there) on making this modification? Anyone done it? As I said, a local guitar builder will be doing this for me. Should I just set back and be confident that they know what the hell they're doing, or are there any pointers/info I can give them?
As I've learned, even the best shops/tech/luthiers don't always understand some of the nuances of Ibanez guitars.
