I just got a neck with the last four frets scalloped and was very surprised at how much easier it is to bend on those frets than on a regular neck. I always thought that scallop thing on a jem was just for looks, kind of like the monkey grip.
Hee hee, well, I did it, ...I went and bought the thing. it is absolutely gorgeous and plays like a dream. The fit and feel is absolutely perfect for me in every way. Just thought I'd share. This is what I'm selling my Jem for and this just fits me / suits me better. What a great guitar...
so i am still working on a Jem custom project (same specs as '02 VWH: ebony board, 24 frets, alder body, Jem features and specs) and i need to get a neck custom made. i want a maple neck (Jem specs) with an ebony fretboard, pearl/abalone dissapearing pyramids and stainless steel frets that is...
I'm eventually going to buy a RG1570MRB and I am thinking of having pyramid inlays installed and having the top four frets scalloped like my Jem. I have a few questions though. First of all, who should I send it to to have the inlays installed and the top four frets scalloped? What color should...

Okay, so I guess it's time to start an official thread. My IbanED one has been temporarily disconnected. As some of you know I build Replacement Bodies and Necks for Jem and RG bodies.
Legacy One started because I know how frustrating it is to have to wait for custom build parts. Watching...
Well after all MY nit-picking I finally recieved my IbanED from John (the legacy) The guitar sounds and play's fantastic! He made it into the guitar I wanted and not just something for him to build and me to buy. I went with///
Silver Maple Body
Hard Rock Maple Neck (unfinished!!)
Has any of the UV owners amongst us scalloped the 21st-24th frets of his/her non-AANJ UV? If yes, did it improve tone and accessibility in these regions? Is it worthwhile?
I'm considering having my UV scalloped to improve access/tone.
Thank you in advance for any input.

Well since this guitar is a melting pot of some of my favorite aspects of guitars I cant afford. I offer the Scallop of the 21-24 frets ala "Jem"
I was nervous at first but I have some woodworking skills and well common sense. I see alot of scallop jobs where they just dig to deep and that was...
Just got back from holidays today and my PBK i got of evil bay was waiting for me. It is definatly a player, and has a great neck! However i notice there is no scalloping on the upper 4 frets as per the specification of this guitar. I am pretty sure it is not a fake, its got an 89 plate, proper...
My ibanez rg550 came with a Edge Floyd Rose put it's difficult to keep it in tune when using the tremolo bar. I did the right setup and the bridge is in neutral position. Maybe the problem it's the springs, but the guitar has only 2 years, I think the springs life it's only in the...
I am offering my RG 3120. (need the money for a JEM)
It was a 1998's model with the offset dots.
Due to better shred-sound it got an Ibanez RG basswood body that looks like the old vintage violin.
Now it sounds great!
Of course it has the LoProEdge and all other great stuff the Rg 3120...
