Sambora Project

Post by MuttznMongrelz » Tue Oct 27, 2020 12:35 pm

Picked up an inexpensive worn but solid player Sambora Body and grabbed a Warmoth Flame Maple Reverse Headstock (Lefty) Neck for it. Going to add some position markers to the neck. Everything will be pretty standard fare otherwise.

- Warmoth Modern Construction R3 Reverse Headstock Flame Maple 10”-16” Radius 22 Jumbo 6100 Fret Neck
- 1987 Richie Sambora Signature Body in Creme
- Seymour Duncan Jazz/Custom Shop Evenly Voiced Harmonics TB/ Custom Shop MJ Warren DeMartini RTM TB
- DiMarzio 500K Volume/Sambora Slant 5 Way Pickup Selector/2 DPDT/Jack
- Top Mount Vintage 1985 Floyd Rose Original with 42mm Block

Sluggy - Lol...yeah...it hadn't been up long when I hit BIN.

marsmountain - Thanks! I've been off work for almost a month due to a left knee replacement surgery and have been bored out of my mind. I picked up a beat up F6K off of CL to part out and recouped my money while keeping the OFR. I figured I might as well see what I could find to piece together while I am cooling my heels.

Great score, I saw that body for sale and I knew it would be gone fast.

Can't wait to see the finished product!

Thanks. I kind of like beat up old bodies. Just have to figure out if I want to try and make the neck look dirty with some lemon oil and coffee grounds.

I've always dug the RS model. I really like the idea of 3 buckers.

I don't think I have ever had another 3 HB guitar but I actually like the 3 HB set up quite well.
