You're shaving the neck down... Just the neck! Does that answer your question?

Nitro Glycerin?

If you simply must shave the neck down, when you're done use tung oil to seal the wood and then just play.

+1 on tung oil. If you are going to take off the finish, nothing better to put on other it.

I have a feeling this won't turn out well.

Re: Epiphone Neck with Jimmy Page Profile

so tung is oil from what I am thinking will replace the nitro or poly. I throw a few coats of tung oil and I should be good to go.

I'm not sure if anyone's done it, but it's not impossible. Keep in mind, some Epiphones have veneers on the neck, so you will sand through the veneer if there is one.

Go slow, you can take off way too much too quick if you aren't careful.

When in doubt, don't do it.

Good luck.

Re: Epiphone Neck with Jimmy Page Profile

I'm sure someone has done it, if not gone it on a Gibson... I haven't heard of veneers on necks, but anything is possible.

And can I ask what is so hard about using the quote button? You don't need to delete anything to use it.

Some Epiphones don't have scarf joints on their necks: ergo, veneer. I can see the scarf on his though, so no veneer (most likely).

And I agree. Click quote, then click under the quote, type.

Perhaps someone can post the dimensions of Jimmy Page's personal Epiphone neck.

Never miss an opportunity is my motto...one of them, anyway....I haven't gotten the replacement for the first, broken Wilshire yet. I have already decided to give it to a local high school when I get it.

All ball-busting aside, Thats a cool thing you are doing with the Wilshire


OP, It can be done just be sure thats actually what you want to do..
I prefer a neck with a little more thickness

Re: Epiphone Neck with Jimmy Page Profile

I'm done trying to dissuade people from making permanent alterations to their guitars... I am kinda curious to see how these things will turn out. Maybe I'm a dick for it, but I could go for a good laugh every once in a while

Either that, or they've found a new way to join the headstock to the neck.
I can't tell if this seam is from the veneer or a neck joint.
(It goes from side to side, just below the QC sticker.)
