          This started out as a Kramer Focus 2000.
          I filled in the neck pickup cavity and converted it into a Focus 1000.

          I finished this up, but my USB port is messed up so I cant upload recent pics of it.
          It is Sea Foam Green with a matching headstock and a White Kramer block logo.

            I ordered a lefty Rhoads body from Mitch @ KNE Guitars a few weeks ago and I finally got it yesterday. I built it last evening, but didn't paint it yet. It's basically a mock up to get everything fitted and get the bugs worked out.

            Here's the specs:
            Poplar body
            24 fret/25.5" scale
            Recessed Floyd
            No trem cover
            Reverse Strat jack plate. (on lower wing facing upward to route the cable thru the strap)
            1 volume/1 humbucker

            I bought a new Jackson DK2 lefty a few months ago and I stripped it, sold the body and I used all of the parts from that onto this body.
            Jackson neck/tuners/locking nut/neckplate
            EMG '81 w/ 18v mod
            JT-580 LoPro trem, etc....

            It went together extremely well and what's so sweet is that the neck pocket/scale length was 100% spot on! I didn't have to intonate it at all, which was very surprising because the saddles were set-up for the DK2.

            I told him not to drill the holes for the neck, so that way I didnt have to plug and drill my neck. I matched up the holes/scale length from my neck and drilled the bodt to match.
            Also the neck heel was a flat style, and kind of thick, so I tapered it toward the front, to match my King V's.

            I went with Poplar, because that's the wood that Jackson used on their Rhoads and King V bodies back in the late 80's - early 90's and that's what all of my King V bodies have...

              Here's a shot of the neck heel after I angled it a tad bit:


              Here's a shot of the Strat jack plate:


              I have an EMG '81 w/ 18v mod in it right now, but later today I'm going to drill and put a mini toggle to go from 9v to 18v.
              I also put Schaller strap locks on it.

              The bevels and contours were really sharp because it was cut with a CNC, so I had to knock them down and round them off a little bit, so the primer, and paint sticks better.

              Plays awesome and sounds great, I'm very happy with it. Too bad I had to strip a $600 DK2 for the parts :lol:
              Sucks being a lefty cause I have to build everything myself...too bad Jackson doesn't make more for us..

              I'm thinking White w/ Black pinstripes, but I'm undecided right now.

                      I'm pretty sure that I got everything. I was only allowed to post 4 pics at a time so I had to "reply" to this quite a few times. sorry it took so long....
