Veneer has arrived at my home!
As did the bits and bobs I needed to get from IbanezRules.com. Good guy to work with. Prices are a bit iffy, but when you control a market the way he does, who can blame him?
I have a bunch of stain in my shop, but I may go shopping for something new. I'm thinking really dark, almost black (remember, Walnut), and color shopping is always a blast. Well, when for project.
Hmm... I don't think I'm missing any details.
Tuners are solid, the nut is in good shape and will get lubed. I'm going to be sanding down and veneering the headstock with the same Walnut. I'll somewhere down the line get an Ibanez decal, if only for resale value.
I will have to drill new holes in the neck, as they aren't the same between 7621 and 7321. I cleared the pickup side of the neck pocket in order for a fit (sides had to be widened as well). How can I be assured it is in the optimum position from the bridge? Math tells me a few centimeters won't make a large difference, but you guys have much more experience here than I do.
