Entry for April 2020's Guitar Of The Month is open - ENTER HERE!

Recommended Posts

I don't remember the last time I was here (checking my attachments didn't help), but a few guitars later (some sold, some stolen...) I figured I'd show what  I've done in the meantime...

Ibanez GIO GRX50 flipped with a left handed RX20 neck. The neck needed some light sanding in order to fit into the pocket, and I think it was due to its age, it needed some serious shimming in order to sit straight enough to put strings on.
