theLastDon Posted September 22, 2005 Report Share Posted September 22, 2005 So I am new to building a guitar. I decided to build a guitar because I found that I couldn't find many guitars that were light-weight, and design to be played as nipple riders. I have somewhat fell in love with a cheap little Ibanez ICX120 (or 220 as they make them now) which is basically the small remake of the ICEMAN. So I wanted to make one... So, I bought a body from someone who had shaped it a good bit. Now, I figured since I don't own a bunch of the correct tools to use, that finding someone who had shaped the body before me would be good, turns out its blowing up in my face. There is numerous mistakes, that I know I should not bother to even try to fix and I should do it all myself properly in the first place, but, for educational purposes, I would like a little input on finishing this one before I start a guitar from scratch. Now, the first problem I came across was bolting on the neck. Ibanez necks are set with offset holes and the guitar body I have has been cut for a different type of neck with 4 even holes. I am trying to sort out how I can go about still using the combination of the neck and the body... -Can I fill the holes? and start fresh... -Can I remove the whole piece that holds the neck and get a new block of wood to attatch to the body ? -Can I do anything to solve this?
