A while back I was looking at taking my production Ibanez RG and pulling the frets out, flattening the radius to 17", and then refret it so that the radius matched the trem's but i had another idea tonight but didnt know if it was feasible. While I really love the PRS Holcomb USA model for the 20" radius, but instead of dropping $5000 on a Holcomb, I had another idea. Im not really looking for 20" specifically but no smaller than 17" so I was wondering if it were possible to buy a normal core model PRS or even a CE, pull the frets, flatten its radius from 10" to 17", then refret it? I only ask because of the bird inlays, I dont know how thick the inlays are to withstand the change from 10 to 17. Granted, if i get a CE that has dots instead then it wouldnt matter, but I would prefer to have birds. Also, if i change the radius from 10 to 17, will i need to file the nut slots deeper to compensate? I dont think i could do anything with a locking nut unless i could file the slots in it. Id rather pay $2-3K for a core model thats routed for a Floyd so I can drop a lopro in it, but i want to make sure that im able to flatten the necks radius without trashing the birds. Holcombs are amazing and if i can catch the right deal at the right time ill buy one in a heartbeat, but if I have alternatives it would be nice.
