Ok, I'm getting excited about this guitar again now that Tom has the neck.
I was discussing with him a couple of changes I'd like to make, one being to replace the black plastic binding with ebony, so it's all just wood but will look like it's bound and contrast nicely with the ebony sharkfins, which is a look I was always after.
Secondly I think I'll reverse the sharkfins to go with the reverse headstock, what does anybody think? One thing that's different about this guitar and almost all other Jacksons that I know if, it has a sharkfin on the 24th fret, something I always wanted as I figured it was doable, so why not do it?
Here are some pics of what was going on underneath the original fretboard and what the guitar looked like with the improved, but thicker board on it.
The guitar when I first got it in 2004.
Underneath the original board. Oh the horror.
Here it is with the new fretboard and the Floyd recessed into the body.
