as close to 1983 as possible.

I've got a x-145VS that I wanted a rosewood fingerboard instead of maple.... I put on a '86 Spectrum neck from xman, but the '86 neck is just a tad narrower than the '83 and the low E is off the fingerboard as it gets to the body. there's a visible gap all around the heel.... I've adjusted the placement of the neck as best I can, but it's still not where it needs to be....

black painted headstock and neck preferred as well....

how's it in "not as good" shape?

the maple neck is 2.25" at the widest... and 2 3/16" wide at the second set of holes.

there's at least a 1/16" gap between the rosewood neck sides and the body right now.

here's a before and after....

lots of wear to the fretboard, and lots of extra holes on the headstock around the truss rod cover (somebody mounted a locking nut).
