I'm going to buy a Schecter C-1 FR, and I'm way psyched, it has all of my dream equipment, but, the headstock doesn't look how I want it to, I want a headstock like a reversed Jackson, and in an extended scale, is there anyway to mod the stock neck to have those?

Well the headstock wont change the scale. If you want it like a jackson then buy a jackson neck and bolt it on.

no, you can't change the scale without moving either the bridge or pickups.
you could get a same scale neck, supposing that it's bolt-on.
Idk about a strait headstock change, but i think it would be alot of delecate work...

^ Whole new neck. You might have to move the bridge, and the pickups.

Alright, is there a good place to try to buy Jackson necks? I'm kinda needy, never customized before, but, I'm planning on buying a Jackson neck, hopefully in the same specs as the Hellraiser's neck, but extended scale.

Can't change? why not? ooh cause the intonation would be off?


AND I wasn't implying that changing the neck would change the scale. I said to get the headstock to look like a jackson you'd do that.

^ The shape of the headstock has nothing to do with the guitar's scale... I can't for the life of me figure out what you're talking about.

Aren't all the C-1s set-neck? You'll have an extremely hard time swapping the neck around. We're talking a major procedure here, and it'll require careful chiseling/routing, refinishing around the neck, etc. Definitely not worth the trouble.

If it's that important to you to have a C-1 with a Jackson headstock, you could grab a carved top Soloist body (because it's somewhat similar to the C-1 shape/carve) and a Jackson-style neck from Warmoth.

I've picked out a neck and everything on warmoth, and I'm really wanting to put it on a Hellraiser, just because that'd look sweet, and it's something no one has ever done and then used it professionally, are there shops that will customize guitars?

Read two posts up- I already explained just how much hassle it's gonna be.

If there are shops that'll do it, they'd have to be damned desperate to take on such a project.

There are shops that MIGHT do it, but you'll end up paying as much for the neck conversion as you will for the guitar itself.

Yeah, you can't just take out the old neck and plunk in a new one..
Just get a Jackson or something from Warmoth. It'll probably be even cheaper that way.
