Headstock binding...

Second, third, and fourth and fifth are bound headstocks and necks. The third from the left is a KV2.

Okay, could you send me some pictures of a guitar with bindings (neck, body, or both) and one without so I know what they look like?

Joe
 SDB is right about the custom shop. Just for grins and giggles a few months back , I submitted a custom build to Jackson and ESP. Both were over 4  grand and the only difference between what I submitted and what I now have was the pickups and the fingerboard. I opted ,then, for the Duncan Distortion and the Duncan Hotrails, with an Maple fingerboard. Jackson actually came in slightly cheaper than ESP. But both listed nearly a year before delivery.
As for binding, as mentioned ,strictly cosmetic, but it does enhance the look of the neck.
So far, I like the EMG`s, very high output, not a high as in distortion type of output, but in signal strength.
As far the Kahler, good units, but I`m addicted to the Floyds after all these years.

see? there are ppl here know far more than me....
[SDBinNY] Tuesday, April 28, 2009 12:31:39 PM 
i'm telling you,Joe, what  you are looking for is nothing worth paying the custom upcharge for. Your best bet is to buy a black KV2 and make the hardware and electronic changes yourself. Fender owns Jackson now, and their custom shop orders start around 4 grand, so you can save more than the cost of the new hardware. If you do it as soon as you get it, you can always Fleabay the stuff you take out and recover some of that investment as well.

If you are looking for specifics about the KV2, let me know and I can post any pics you request. I have a KV2 and can get you shots or info on anything specific you want. They still come standard with medium frets, despite the info on the Jackson site (because any changes haven't made it to retail stock yet).

i go for a slimline neck and yes humbuckers - i prefer a motherbucker at the neck and a duncan PAF at neck - play a BC Rich Warlock thro a Marshall 5010 - several fx - that axe looks damn fine tho

I know I was just wondering what the hell the point of it was haha. 

I'm gonna get a through neck body, 81/85 EMG combo (still not sure about that), might get that EMG EXP or whatever the fuck it's called EQ switch, 24(it's not a real guitar unless it's got 24!!!) fret maple neck (ebony fretboard), alder body I think, sharkfin inlays (just cause I like them a little more), a 2300 Kahler Tremolo system most likely (still looking into different ones like classic Floyd's too), solid black paint job and chrome hardwear. Oh yeah it's a King V too haha.

Basically it'll look like this, with hardwear, knobs, and pickup differences. But this is the basic idea:

Just add ons to basic axes...what u need to concentrate on is sound and playability....   imo
[Necroticist] Tuesday, April 28, 2009 11:11:31 AM

Alright I was looking into the Jackson Custom Shop last night and this is gonna sound stupid but... what the fuck are bindings haha? Like body, neck, and headstock bindings and do I need them? What's the point? What are they?
[guitardude] Monday, April 27, 2009 1:27:10 PM 
Well, I am glad you like it!!    So what will it be boxers or briefs??
EMG`s are smokin, but can`t really tell much of a difference when I toggle between the neck and bridge. Have only played it thru my Pocket POD and my son`s little Fender G-Dec, so I need to score a big amp .

    And the budget will recover soon enough.So buyers remorse should be minimal.

HOLY CRAP !!! The flame on that top is drop dead gorgeous !!!!

VERY VERY nice score.... Glad the headstock matches, that really sets it off.

The EMG's sound phenomenal in my DK2M, and the 85 in the neck position oozes earthy tones.. How do they sound with the maple top?

I hope it doesn't screw the budget up too bad, Fender just had another price increase, and it seems to cascade to the secondary market.  Besides, you have no idea the mess that beauty has created here... You owe me a new pair of shorts my friend !!!!!!
