Snagged this (badly) modded Diablo for a little over tree-fiddy a while back and finally got around to getting it on to the operating table in my little shop of guitar horrors. Installed a new trem w/ 37mm brass fat block, kill switch/tone pot, toggle switch, pick ups, Schaller strap locks and strings.  Everything but the neck p'up works as it should and the Gravelin modified SD (now for all intents and purposes, a neon pink Mongoose) sounds killer! Fuhq yahhhh! It rawks!

The Diablo got it's final set of mods today - 800 grit sandpaper to the neck for a more satin-y feel, and a SD Custom Shop neon pink SH-2N Jazz in the neck position. She RAWKS and purrs now.

So, while technically, it's not from my bench, the guitar will eventually be assembled on my bench. Shane of HEL Guitars, sent this last night: the fret board for my crackle Cali replacement neck. :D

Was that your double-neck he's holding-on to?

 

I dropped-off my Scepter for minor-surgery and got the 'grand tour'.....including a peek at what was in the big guitar case on the floor.  Got plans?

Yep- he used your Scepter as a reference for Boomer positioning on that Crackle Cali neck shown above.  FTR- That's not my double-neck case. The MOAC has ebony boards and already is scalloped on the 6 string neck. :D

That looks like something that Douchebag Maestro Alex Gregory would conceive.

Great color! It needs the Gas Monkey logo and it's perfect!

Seriously, is that a real working neck?  Looks like something meant to propel spitwads in Junior High.  And how much do you have to tighten the truss rod to keep it straight under string tension?
