I picked up a used 2002 RG1570 body off ebay. I plan to make a neck for it. I’m not trying to spend a whole lot, so I cheap-d out on hardware somewhat
On to the specs:
- Bamboo Neck w/ reversed head stock
- Maple Fret board
- Generic machine heads and trem (will be blocked)
- I have some stock Ibanez pickups lying around, might upgrade to CL-LF or BKP’s later
Here is the body.
It’s in decent condition, just this ding towards the output jack and a few scratches here or there.
Bamboo for neck.
Some CAD modeling
Now some time in the future I will probably purchase an Edge Pro anyway, so I do NOT want to re-route and mess with the cavity shape and size. Modifications to tremolo will be necessarily.
I filed away at the "knife edge" to accommodate for two screws.
That's rosewood in center.
There's the big block I cut the strip from. The picture's a little blurry. Sorry, not the greatest lighting.
Fret board planed. Ready for slotting and radius-ing
