    Fixing a friends Jackson King V Pro

    This guitar had terribly high action at the nut, so I fixed it for him

    First sawing a bit


    Then filing


    I also installed a dive-only Blocka Rollas (tm) because this FRT-2000 fucking sucks and can't stay in tune even with new springs, lubed knife edges and proper setup. But now it stays in tune very well!


    FINISHED! Now it plays much better. (that Alexi Laiho style stripes is "glow in the dark" tapes he pimped it with a while ago )

    Happy to see that there was no chiseling and electrical tape involved.

    I like how you use both giant screws and superglue, because you can't be too careful

    I was actually a little disappointed that there was a headstock after that hacksaw pic.

    Do you actually think I would ruin a guitar like that when somebody wants me to fix it?

    Much cleaner than your previous repair work. Props, and I mean that in a genuine way. It's good to see improvement
