This week I finally decided to go ahead and get the N.O.S neck I posted about back in February on this 1987 black cherry I have. It was not without a little work but overall fit nicely.
I did have a little bit of a scare...
When tightening the strings even though I had some string buzz I kept checking the tuning but I had to hit the 13th fret to get the octave of every srting, not the 12th? I was freaking out, I was measuring and comparing the neck that I pulled off the saber originally that was on the radius that I had put it on and everything kept coming up the same? I finally figured out that I had not shimmed the nut up high enough yet to pull the octave back to the 12th fret and that's where the issue was....lol.
I forgot how good that guitar sounds. I might or might not get black knobs as i don't really want to spend the $$ on a chrome edge, tuners etc.
I did add a string tree to it as well. The edge bridge,tuners, nut and string tree were spare parts from other ibanez guitar projects.
