    Some of you may have seen the small but very changing mods I have been doing to this Jay Turser 7 I have dubbed Lucky #7 here

    http://www.sevenstring.org/forum/lu...tor-again-lets-mods-begin-updated-1-19-a.html

    Well she is finally done and thought I would show her off a bit. Such a great guitar for little investment.

    List of mods done

    Clean up fret job from Jay Turser
    Round Fretboard edges it was almost a direct 45
    Polish Frets
    Install Inlay Decals
    Mod Electronics to feature single volume, 3 way, Coil Taps, and Kill Switch
    Custom Kill Switch knob made from old Strap Button
    Installed Dimarzio Blaze Necks in both position ala old school Korn
    Faux Binding on body, neck, and headstock

    you can pick these up on the cheap at GC for like $149 some deal the got them on closeouts and cant mark them as new since they arent a Jay Turser dealer.

    Awesome guitar truly is after a little work

    ^Wow, that'd be a sweet deal. If I see one I'd be miiighty tempted. It seems like an excellent modding platform. The heel is AANJ-esque, right?

    ...so instead of carving out the wood, you just paint the binding on it I guess...

    I'm sorry but I never heard it before:flame:

    Thanks
