    Square heel Electrical Guitar company neck fits pretty dam good! The mirror pickguard has a brass back plate, this thing is heavy! Balances perfectly though with this neck and the pups are great actually really chime for buckers.

    I dig it. I really love the look of those necks. Just a little out of my price range to do a parts caster with one.

    I just saw the Melvins. Buzzo uses those Travis Bean & Electric Guitar Co (I think?)aluminum guitars. Great band if you're into heavy.

    That J5 looks fantastic! Nice job.

    that’s a seriously sexy build!!! From Baywatch to the Creatures and all gothic shred-heavy points in between, John Lowery is a beast!

    Buzzo riffs man I’m not the biggest fan of their singing but his riffs are super creative!

    How do attach the body to the neck? Does the neck have threaded female inserts, and you use bolts?

    Yep you got it, literally bolts right on there! Has to be straight and plump so to speak as there is no truss rod. In this case it took longer to change the strings than swap the necks. I am actually going to re do this one though as I ran out of neck shims and the action in all honesty is too low.

    There's so much metal on that thing, the whole thing probably chimes!! It does look cool, except for the trem arm.
