It seems like forever sinse I started this project but its finally finnished and it looks and sounds great! laugh.gif
here are some pictures..







For those who didn't see my earlier posts on this.. It used to be a Ibanez rg 321 mh that I bought used awhile back, it was full of dings and such and a plain black paintjob. So I gave it a new paintjob(which took alittle over a month) and bought some seymour duncan mayhem pickups for it. when I had it put together in the shop I had the action lowered. Now I just wish I had a better amp to use with it..

Looks great man! Nice job!

Action looks low to. Probably plays like butter. tongue.gif

Sound clips please.

"Think of a guitar solo as a paragraph. You need a clear beginning, a middle, and an end. Look at musical phrases like sentences, and make sure you break them up using punctuation—or space. You pause naturally when conversing, right? If you don't, you'll bore the listener. The same thing will happen with your audience if your solo is one dimensional. You'll wear them out and lose their attention." —Tom Principato

Sweet guitar! I'd like to make a LP shaped guitar with a ibanez/fender type bridge sometime.... I think that would combine ibanez playability with LP looks pretty sweet.

IMO no point in getting a massive wood guitar, when you lose alot of sustain to your floating tremolo. smile.gif

Ohh, I didn't mean to get a tremolo, I meant with the fixed bridge type.

I still think it'll lose alot of sustain without a hardtail, and then the large body is somewhat useless. smile.gif

well honestly im not a big fan of the singlecoil in the middle it seems to get in the way for some reason.. and I probly would have messed something up while cutting into it, I didnt want to do anything to complicated seeing that this is my only electric guitar.

Ohh, you made it yourself? Good job!
Did you get a pull knob for volume though, so you can turn 'em into S.coils?

It's an easy solder, I would recommend it for versatility.
Though, again, guitar looks great man!
