    Default Neck Luthiers: Richie Sambora Neck?

    For those of you out there making custom necks, have you ever done a maple Fender neck like Richie Sambora's with the star inlays? Here is a link to a recent ebay auction where you can see them up close:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/1991-Sambora-Fen...mZ200219193871

    If so, I'm curious about price, turnaround time, finishing, etc.,. I have my own specs on neck profile, etc., but nothing too crazy or out of the ordinary.

    Thanks
    Chris

    Hey Nast-
    I could swear that Warmoth makes a neck that you could pass as a Sambora. Try looking into them, they have great necks! -Red43j
    Eddie must think I'm a BOZO to want to drop THAT much on one of his new Charvel Guitars!

    Warmoth will do the star inlays for $90 extra.

    Has anyone seen the new Sambora guitar that ESP / LTD is doing? It's ugly.

    I see that they have star inlays, but not without the black borders. Sounds like it's one of those things they are not going to list on the website/you have to call, eh? I appreciate the info.

    And, yes, the new guitar is butt ugly. I like Richie, and maybe there is an element of 'cool' to this ESP guitar to him, but I have have to believe it's all about the endorsement money.

    Bon Jovi is coming to Michigan (The Palace) on July 7th, but I'm hoping they open up a show in GR. In and out of GR is a lot better than Detroit. I'm going to the Hagar show at Common Ground here in Lansing on July 8th (my wife's boss has the week VIP passes) so this would be 2 shows in a row.... GR would be better...

    Thanks again
    Chris

    It's pretty bad. Looks like a cross between a Daisy Rock and a Danelectro.
