Thread needs attention!

Hoogle, I was thinking I may aswell go for AAA Flame given that it not a huge amount more than A or AA, so 275 would be the final price for the neck?

Sweeeeeeet, I should have all of the money for it on sunday/monday.

Just out of interest, how much extra would those aluminium tube side inlays that you put in james' neck be?

Awesome, If I could have those instead then it would be cool.

I have the tuners for it, they are schaller locking tuners which according to the schaller website are 9.8mm for the tuner hole.

I think i've decided im gonna do a mirror faced guitar, so is having a 3mm mirror acrylic face on the headstock gonna be an issue at all? Im still not 100% decided on the finish of the body, So if it would be faaaaaaaaar easier to just do a black finish on the face of the headstock, then I will probably go with a black rounded body instead.

Actually hoogle, I think I have changed my mind Considering getting a can of base coat, black and matt clear coat nitro cans is gonna cost about 15 each, so 45, I may aswell have the headstock mirrored then just mirror the front of the body and tru-oil the back of the body of the guitar too. What do you think?

Hmmm, what about if you just prep the headstock for being mirrored with the 3mm off the top, and, seeing as Im probably gonna get 3 or so A3 sheets of mirror, I might just have a bash at doing it myself. So would that still be 275 with nothing on the headstock?

yes but you'd have to remember that it would be 3mm thinner than normal and you would have to put something on it. so if you get pissed off and dont want to do it the headstock will be too thin

Yeahh I know, But I will have plenty of mirror incase I fail dismally, and cutting it to size isn't a challenge. My mate's got a heat strip so I will probably just borrow that for a day or so and make sure to take my time!
