neck pocket cracks

  1. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    I just want to know how involved repairing neck pocket cracks is, and also how to properly strip the finish. The cracks are only finish deep. Anyone?

    Only took me a couple of minutes and a few seconds, six to be exact. Easy

    is it possible for these to be more than just finish crack, ie become a wood crack and destroy the guitar? thanks.

    almost mint, except for two small neck pocket cracks and one ding on the back side, got it off Craig's list. Have no idea what it is worth, I just like it! Nice tone, really chunky and has a little fatter neck than the Ibanez I am used to, but still plays amazing!

    Hey, Recently I purchased a JS1200CA (2006 model) but as expected it came with a less than desirable set up. I've been trying to set it up myself but without leaving the action really high the strings choke badly on the first string while bending. It's especially bad on frets 12 and 15. I like...
