Post Paul Gilbert racer x guitar
I'm putting together a project which is to try and rebuild a Paul Gilbert racer x guitar. From what I've heard the custom guitar bodies he used were either a warmoth,Olympic or epiphone body but I'm wondering if anyone can help me find out what type of neck he used. Personally I thought it was a 21 fret ibanez neck

If you haven't seen this already, someone on this board is also building the guitar you're reffering to viewtopic.php?f=8&t=19470 Lots of great info.

Good luck with your project. :)

Yeah I had seen that thread before, where pauls pink guitar had an Olympic body and an epiphone neck. I'm personally going to make mine with a Warmoth strat body,possibly a Floyd rose, and maybe an ibanez neck but from the pictures Pauls fret board looks like a darker rosewood

Welcome to the board!

Get a c.1985 Ibanez X Series neck. It's got 22 medium frets and has a bullet type trussrod nut, 42mm nut approx.
Very nice neck but very hard to find.
Paul had a rosewood fretboard.
It looks like it will fit a Strat body very nicely.

BTW I used a copied Wilshire body and a modded Ibanez X Series neck for my EPI.

So did you find the neck on eBay or on a private sale?
