    While sitting around literally watching the paint dry on the stripe jobber, I got a wild hair and grabbed the neck plate for this thing, and got to thinking about how hard it would be to remove the serial number in order to replace it with something cool, like the "1984" engraved into the back of the new Kramer 1984.

    Well, a little masking tape, several grades of sand paper, and some silver polish, and I've got a clean, shiny neckplate that I'll take to the mall tonight to have re-engraved.

    This got me thinking two things: 1) This was a pretty cool, easy, and cheap mod to the project, and 2) Be careful folks! I've seen more and more ads on e-bay and elsewhere that seem to place great emphasis on supposed "American" serial number on the back of the neck plate, and as I learned today, you can pretty much make the neck plates say anything you want with very little effort and expense.

    What kind of place does this? I wanted to make my project guitar special by putting my name on the headstock, but this is less egocentric and cooler!

    Yeah! Dave, yours is cooler than mine's gonna be, cause I have the less correct bananer style, but I'm still pretty excited.

    Rol is right (you'll see a lot of that here!). I took mine to Things Remembered at the mall. Head on down there and get yourself a nifty neckplate, and pick something up for the Missus, whom you've no doubt been neglecting down there in the basement painting that geetar...oh wait, that's me!
