    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.

    Is it safe to scallop a bound neck? I was thinking if doing the Jem scallop on my RGR570 which has a bound neck. Thanks in advance.

    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...

    Hi, 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. Regards, D.

    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 a thought... when you get a fretboard scalloped, does it remove the inlays, or do they go deep enough so there's actually some inlay left? Do you have to get the inlays replaced?

    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...

    Hello, 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...
