Get Août of here!

That's pretty interesting. I think I also have an Aug '85 neck, though I swear it's abbreviated "correctly" (jk). Still trying to find an old picture.

Reverse ZEbra is looking good!

Found it!! I was wrong. Mine is was made in SEP, which would fit with French too, Septembre. Also a non-scarf.

Never knew that this was a LaSiDo. Thanks 80sChris! :yourock

Takemeback, how does it compare to your other retta necks? Like the back profile I mean. Mine is pretty slim under the first couple frets especially. Always wondered if they're all like that. Plays really easy.

Not played it yet - but win inspection its pretty much the same as my '85 black custom plate - really lovely neck and thinner profile vs the thicker wider R5s. Will compare to the rest when this one is up and running.

Progress update, there was some post lean so new posts needed - tone removed, kill switch added + smaller 3 way. Pickups are in.

Kill really switch seems to fit the whole vibe of this one imo. Good move.

Rails wouldn't have been my choice sonically, but aesthetically they really fit imo. Like a slight JDM vibe under the American provenance. Something like that. :thumbs
