    So I finally raised the money to afford a new baritone neck.

    This is what's going to Poland;

    You know you want all that red stuff gone from your neck pocket. :agreed:

    Wood to wood contact in neck pocket in bolt on guitar => better tone :yesway:

    that red stuff in the neck pocket is actually "sucked" into the wood, so when you touch it, you´re touching wood, but it´s absorbed the redness...

    also, your quilt looks "blurry" compared to mine :p

    mine has got tons of detail, and smaller quilty patterns :p

    yours is really really bright red though, that´s nice :D

    tell me how you packed that bundle of love btw, the body specifically? me and my bud are packing his guitar´s body to mike sherman today :)

    badass dude!
    let us know how it goes, clearly.
    I was gonna get a replacement body for the RG from him, but i had to scrap that (selling the RG, had to fix my computer asap)
    Just gonna save up slowly and get a custom rotor, with the mandatory 28 5/8"

    whats the headstock shape?

    Once you get it back, I demand recordings. I'm interested to hear what a 28.625" 7-string sounds like.

    My camera sucks, that's why it looks blurry and the bright red comes from the flash, it's really dark red without a spotlight on it.

    I wrapped the body in the same kind of protecting clothing that it came with. (nån jävla form av plast frigolit tyg som gitarren är inlindade i).
    Then I used Encapsulated-air Plastic Sheeting to wrap around it. And tons of tape. :)

    I'm going with the schecter style headstock with a little roter custom mark, no paint or any fancy stuff.

    Is your baritone 27" ?

    WTF, i replied o this post just earlier now, to reply back to this last post, but now i come in here, only to see that the damn post is fucking gone...

    ok, i´m getting a little annoyed now... this has been happening a couple of times before, but WTF is up with it, i post things, i see the posts appear, come back later, and the post isn´t there... i restart firefox, go back in, and wahey, still no post...

    anyways, i wrote "ah, jag fattar!", and that i´d go about packing the shit out of the guitar body we´re sending :p
