scalloped neck

  1. All Other Guitars (including Prestige)
    I was a little weary when I sent in my Jackson Rhoads neck to these guys to be scalloped. I had heard some good reviews though so I took a shot. This guitar was mainly dwelling in my closet these past days, and I'd seen the add for a 99 dollar scallop for about a year so I thought I'd try. I...

    This is the first mod so far on my Ibanez Roadstar II 1985 that I got for free a half year ago. I posted about that in a different thread so I'm not gonna write the whole story here. I have ordered cream white pickguard material and black pickup covers without holes. I like the EMG look but...

    When I first got this JEM it was smash to crap, I bought it off from the owner at a price of 400usd, so I'm restoring it, the pickup is EVO neck, Fast track1 and EVO2. I scalloped the 12th fret till 20th fret. Got myself a new lo pro, an ESP arming adjuster. Can't wait for it to finish. Just...

    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.

    I've been gone a good while now. I haven't played guitar in a bout a year or so. I kinda miss it and would like to have a new guitar but nothing too fancy just yet, not like my previous Jem's or UV's. I want to know what's out there now that's a good "bang for it's buck".

    I have a question for you guys about the JEM series. I know that they are good guitars, and a lot of people enjoy them, so i am NOT trying to flame them or start a negatively-toned thread in any way. My question is more of a "parts" question: why are the JEMs (for example, the popular white...

    Hello from Finland! I was wondering if here are others ibanez owners who have made scallopings to the fretboard? I did mine two years ago for my S 370, scalloped the whole board with very deep scallopings. It took me long time to get used to it, but now i don't wanna play guitar without...

    WARNING: VERY bright and flashy As you all probably know, it is almost impossible to capture the true colour of a neon guitar. This is my best attempt. the picture below is probably the closest to the real colour scallops! yummy... Review (For those who are thinking about ordering...

    I have an Ibanez RG350MDX and I want to make some changes to it. I'm going to get the neck scalopped to help me play faster, and am going to get a "monkey grip" cut into the body. I was also thinking about changing the scratch plate or making some cosmetic changes. Maybe I will strip the paint...
