    Mustaine: He's brilliant; I love him. But then you see some guy like Bucketheadů Buckethead is probably twice as good a guitar player as me and Slash combined, and can stand having fried chicken rubbed up against his face all night for a couple of hours.

    San Dimas neck (side):









    It's a 12"-16" Compound Radius, 22 fret neck. It's .790" at the nut and .860" at the 12th. Feels like a thin C.....but I could be wrong. It's certainly awesome!

    Dinky neck (side):









    24 fret 12"-16" Compound radius, Jumbo frets (just like the Charvel San Dimas), Ebony fretboard of course. I checked Jackson's site about the USA Select DK1's and didn't see neck thicknesses listed but it feels just like the Charvel's neck. They literally feel the same to me. Thin C, fast. Not Wizard thin by a long shot but holy great balls of FARRRR these are some sweet necks, Er'ybody got time fo DAT!

    It's pretty easy to install a standard jack in place of a barrel jack, except for guitars like the Ibanez S series and the Jackson Stealth.

    I thought you couldn't put an RG neck on an S body because of the 22/24 fret thing?

    My S521L is 25.5" scale and 24 fret exactly like the spare RG1570L neck I have is. It'll work perfectly.

    Im going down through all of the NGD posts i missed and I get to this epic thread, man! I mean I was with you every step of the way, but seeing all of these on a bigger screen back to back to back to back... i forgot how many you got lately! I bet your box cutter is getting dull. hahaha and by box cutter, I do mean razor blade. hahaha!
    Good stuff man, which one is your fav of the bunch?
    Tell ya what, that Charvel looks killer and its kinda growing on me. Hows the neck profile on that compared to, well anything I can relate to, we'll put it that way. Im betting its more akin to a Strat than a Jackson because thats Charvel's thing.
    I read on the internet one time that...

    HAHAHA!! "Box" cutter. Cara thought that was a good one!

    My fave so far? Damn, I'm torn between the DK1 and the San Dimas. They are both very comfortable and easy to play. I'd say I enjoy the SD the most since it's just so simple. I mean what's not to like? Single 'bucker? Check! Single volume? Check! 22 fret fast neck? Check! My favorite "tone wood" (Mahogany)? Check! Top mount OFR? Check! I mean it checks ALL my needs in a "perfect" guitar. The only thing it COULD use is a finish....maybe someday I'll get it painted, or, probably more likely I'll build one just like it and paint THAT one and leave this as is.

    I'll get the neck specs and compare them to other stuff I have like I talked to you about a few days ago. It's surprising how "un-Strat-like" it is in terms of feel. It looks like a Strat, but that's where the similarities end. Missed ya buddy, glad you're back!

I think in the last few days I've sold off a sizable amount of my collection to make way for higher quality stuff.....and this is just the beginning:











    I really have Joe to thank for this, if he wouldn't have mentioned anything I probably wouldn't have known this was available. It's a 2002 SL1. I really have wanted one of these finishes for ages, just never thought I'd ever find one let alone be able to buy it.

    This one plays wonderful, sounds amazing and just looks great. I'll have more to add to this thread later tomorrow, when something just as special arrives......can't wait (but will obviously have to....until tomorrow sometime!). Lol! Enjoy fellas!
    that's a great looking guitar, man! congrats.
