on second thought, its impossible. u would have to move the neck joint, which would require a new neck, plus massive mods tio the body, bracing....just not possible.

i agree with the jack black quote, but the sg kicks ass. and it doesnt feel like ur wearin a friggin cinder block.

edit: and it is possible to remove the neck, but if u look at the pic, the joint itself is higher up on the neck...

You can remove acoustic guitar necks that were attached using hide glue. (horse glue)

If it was attached using some cheap wood glue or epoxy, which I'm 99.8% sure it was, then the neck removal process has a better chance of exploding the whole guitar at the joint when he tries to separate it.

See like you could do a halfway fake job of it without removing the neck. Just cut what you don't want off and patch it back together. When you're done, it will probably look and sound like a hack job... but its a $30 investment... and might be fun to ruin it.

If you can get your first idea to work, I'll shoot myself in the head.

New idea: why not just build the damn thing from scratch?

What if you cut the 'shoulders' (thats the best way I can describe it) and flipped them to oppisite sides so that they curved the oppisite way?
#37
the biggest problem that i think you're overlooking (and pardon my bold assumption if you have already thought of this and figured out a solution) is that the neck joint on your guitar connects around the 14th fret, while JBs neck joins around the 19th/20th fret, which will require moving the bridge about three inches or so further toward the butt of the guitar, which means filling the existing string holes (not a biggie if your painting it which you are) but more importantly filling and rerouting a soundhole, unless you want to have horrible horrible acoustic quality in your guitar...

So uh... what happened to that idea then?
#39
Good point man,
Uhm..
I dunno i'm thinkin about, since the guitar has 19 frets, lowering the scoop thing to the 16-17 frets, not that much but a major improvment fret access-wise.
I have to freehand draw my sketch so sorry about the bad drawing of my plans coming up...
