Time to start a new topic after finally finishing my Aria/Mosrite project last year. This one comes with a story. A long, long time ago somewhere in the lowlands I got my hands on an Ibanez JS10th guitar, aka Chromeboy. I'm a big Satriani fan and really like the chrome finish. It also played like a dream. Really great neck, great versatile sound and the Edge trem setup was superb as well. However, I somehow don't feel comfortable to play very expensive guitars like that so a few years back I got the idea to build/customize my own JS type guitar to keep it relatively cheap and ofcourse have fun doing it! To that purpose, I've picked up 2 Ibanez R440 models. Which are almost identical in shape to the JS body and also made of basswood. The goal is to create 2 JS type guitars out of these: 1 Custom art JS2400 style JS and 1 JS10th style in chrome. To that effect there's some work to be done: Changing radius of fretboard and refret with 6105 fretwire Filling up and routing of one body for HH-setup and one for HS - setup I already started with some of it, which I'll post below. As I've had this idea for a long time, I've had some time to collect hardware needed: Dimarzio ProTrack and MoJoe pickups for the custom art JS Dimarzio PafJoe and PafPro for the chrome JS Push pull pots and electronics 'New' used Edge as one of the two I had was not in the best shape anymore Fretwire
