Re: A little photoshop fun.. Whos Playing

Cool. The stem is just a little different (wider and bluer - is that a word, lol) than the others I've seen.

That thing looks gorgeous BRAND SPANKIN NEW! I didn't realize you could get facotry replacement BFP necks.

But then again.....maybe Tom is right....maybe mine is the knock off

Re: A little photoshop fun.. Whos Playing

Well, if it has the floral pattern on the headstock, chances are it isnt a knockoff since only ibanez has/had that print, it was custom made just for ibanez. im guessing your might have faded a bit over the years. This neck has pritty much been in the factory box in someones closet for many years..

I dont know how many extra necks they made, but im guessing not that many since the guitars only had a 3 year run..

Lol...I have no doubt about the authenticity
of my neck

Here is what I'm talking about. This is Kennydoe's and mine looks EXACTLY like this as well. See the difference in the stem???



Sorry for nabing your pic Kenny

Also - sorry to get off topic - please forgive Collector

Re: A little photoshop fun.. Whos Playing

at least that what it looks like to me, and it makes sence too since only wood can bend around the curves like that..

I can still swirl it and put a blue mirror guard on it to match the neck, which is what im highly considering. I suppose they could swirl it with a blank guard on it as well, but im not sure how that would work. Plus with as much money I have in this guitar already, im not about to hunt down the much rarer block heal rear routed RG570L.
Just look at this pic.
You don't need to use a fancy blue pickguard covering your awesome swirled body.
Just ask the swirler to make you an cavity cover just like this one:

It's gonna rule!

That would be all well and good if you couldn't see the cover outline...
