So recently I've been thinking the herd here and there in an effort to buy my "dream guitar" and last night I took step one and decided to pull the trigger on on an RGI 700 series neck. Here's the specs for those that don't know. NECK SPECS: Material: 6061 Solid Billet Aluminum Scale: 25.5” Nut Width: 1 11/16” Frets: 22 Stainless Steel Medium/Medium Fretboard Radius: 12” Tuners: 3+3 Sperzel Locking Nut: 6061 Aluminum (cut for heavy gauge strings)(0.013", 0.020", 0.024", 0.035", 0.046", and 0.056") or cut to your specific gauges if specified Heel Pocket: Fender Strat Style (5/8” deep, 2.18” heel width, 3” total length, 5” radius heel curve) Thickness: .700” at Nut, .725” at 7th fret, .740” at 12th fret .760” at 15th fret Neck Shape: Very flat U shape, maximum thinness without structural loss, no tapered heel I decided to keep it simple and go with black dot inlays and a flat finish as opposed to the mirror finish. As of right now wait times are about 3 months~ so for now updates to this thread will come slowly. In the mean time, I need to decide what kind of wood I'll be using for the body, and what pickups I plan on using. For the body I'm thinking either ash or mahogany. I want something that will be very dense (to help compensate for the heavier aluminum neck and prevent neck dive) and will accept a stain easily. My plan is to stain it pure black and then finish with some kind of oil for a matte look. Also need to think about hardware & control layout as well, but I have a while to figure that out. Anyways, I'll keep this thread updated as this little project progresses.
