Tukoz you may be the bravest guitar dude on the planet? " I think I'll buy the Jackson Kelly for a grand and then go get my chainsaw". Your shadow V is turning out cool so I'm not talking shit in any way. If anybody could do it I bet you could. Finish the current project and demo it for us first. Bring the current project home brutha!
Thanks for keeping me on the right track. Destroying guitar is an ugly act, even Paul shouldn't smash his PS40 and Kramer Striker
If I find a Jackson Kelly that's already been sawn, I'll get it... Well, I don't think that will happen, but who knows?
I tried my VV recently. It works fine. The neck is fine (too bad I'll have to paint it), pick-ups too. As the frets are low, E-strings don't slip out of the frets (narrow neck and a little bit too large locking nut). Tuners are ok.
There's only one problem I noticed, with the Floyd. I should have payed more attention when I did the two holes (to fix the Floyd), which are a little bit too close one to the other. I plan to fill one hole with resin/fiberglass, and do a new hole at the right place.
I've been thinking about the colors. At this time, grey and pink (both with flakes) seem the easiest choice. I also have a cousin that do gold leaves... Blue/black/pink, as the first AZG is nice too!
