Thread revival here!

My brother-in-law FINALLY finished painting my 540pii body (1 year later). He did it in a candy red over an orange base with flames (orange to green). I started assembling it last night.

I will post some pics of it the project when I get home from work tonight.

This one is also pictured above...I bought it from Heartfielder (Thanks man!)

One of my Favorites. I also had a black one on loan and bought a project one that I ended up turning over due to it being too much work.

Very cool! I was thinking of having my brother-in-law paint mine DY, but I thought I should give him free reign.

Thanks! I've never seen one in real life personally. The body is a reproduction (almost everything else is Ibanez). I don't know if the body is identical to a real ibanez, but it looks close enough for me.

I bought it from Monster Guitars. They actually have one for sale on E*** right now with a Buy-it-now price of $175 (item# 160191742619). This is the picture of the exact body I bought.

When I got mine it did require some modifications (neck pocket had to be sized properly, tremolo route had to be enlarged to fit Edge, tremolo post insert holes were too small for the inserts, minor reshaping to the horns-they were too 'sharp'). It did, however, come with the cavity covers.

They guy claims to be able to build a body for whatever tremolo system and neck you want. I have an actual pii neck which doesn't have the typical fretboard overhang, so that had to be taken into account.

He claims his bodies are 'ready to play'. He didn't seem to get mine right and shipping bodies back and forth for corrections is very expensive, so be careful if you buy a body from him. I spent about $300 having a local luthier fix the problems.

Good luck!

Wow! I don't typically go for that flame look, but that is a great color combination. Very nicely done - my compliments to your brother-in-law!

I was wondering how those bodies were from that guy - I've also got a PII neck that is currently on my triple coil 540P, but I've been thinking about doing a PII with it, so that's good information, thanks.

That triple coil 540P is a cool guitar. It didn't originally come with a reverse headstock, did it?

No, I got a 540P-II neck on a 560 body from **** - I got a great deal, too. Anyway, for awhile I had that neck on a DY 540 S, which looked pretty cool, but once I got the triple coil, I thought it'd look pretty cool on there. Now I'm kinda digging on the P-IIs though.

For reference, here's what the 540S DY looked like with the 540P-II neck(although it's since been modded to HSH and obviously the neck has been changed - to a forward sharktooth neck):
