You think you can't, you wish you could, I know you can, I wish you would. Slip inside this house as you pass by.

Ok, I'll have to amend my statement I suppose :). For Black, pre-matching headstock is the clear winner. But for lighter metallic colors, matching headstock and slab fretboard is tough to beat! This 1962 Fender Jazzmaster Lake Placid Blue Metallic, slab fretboard, custom order A neck width is a pretty good example (long since sold unfortunately). When I think back to guitars I wish I had not sold, this one is usually top of the list.
MAN ! that thing was clean. How was the A neck ? how difficult to adjust to playing it after a B neck ?

I didn't mind the A neck at all! It was a fabulous guitar. I haven't seen anything quite like it since I sold it years ago :fp:
