    Got a Spear brand J-width neck here on Buy & Sell, and did not really like the headstock> Price was so cheap, I didn't mind doing some Franken-bass mods to it. Cheap fun, keeps me off the streets ;)

    Original Spear headstock:
    358707328.

    First cut it to a curvy style, but didn't like it, so I blacked out edge to a tele shape with a Sharpie prior to cutting with handheld jigsaw, seems to be a good way to see how it will look first before cutting.

    After the tele cut, I did some hand sanding and applied some Minwax golden oak stain & wipe on poly
    358707366.

    Added a spaghetti logo I had in my drawer, for my consumption/pleasure only
    358707401.

    Final partscaster product, with Bill Lawrence P-46 pickup
    358707443.

    I wish G&L would start doing that to their eye-gougers.
