Talking Project Time! Big TIme!

Okay, I found a lot of Ibanez aftermarket parts.

I got 2 necks and 6 bodies.
I'm not telling what I paid, it was a great deal!

The necks were made by ET Guitars, one Pyramid and one DNA.

The bodies were made by Perle Guitars.

I know one body will be a DNA to go with the neck.

All the bodies are rear route.
What do you guys think would go good with the Pyramid neck?

I'm also looking for some powder cosmo hardware to go with the DNA.

I'm going to have Livewire Guitars Swirl and clear the bodies.

Re: Project Time! Big TIme!

Just my 2 cents. I would love to build a custom JEM (currently saving for an early PBK). If I did, since there has not been or will be a red JEM, Road Flare, Ruby or lipstick red for the body. Maybe a metalflake or candy apple. Use the pink-green-yellow combo somehow for the lions claw, pickups, knobs, and switch tip.Maybe pink or black lions claw, pickups in a green bridge, pink middle, yellow neck, yellow top hat knobs and green switch tip. Truly a custom JEM and not a look alike. Love the flame in the maple neck. It is gorgeous. Good luck with your projects. Jealous for sure.

Damn dude, if you are feeling generous I'd love a body to test some finishing with!

Looks like an awesome score, good luck building your projects.

I don't have a RG550DY, I have a JEM777VDY.

I still looking to buy a real JEM777DY.

I'm going to make a DNA because I'd never spend the money on a real one.

DYs, they are priced within reason.

The Pyramid neck is going to my buddy Jamm'n Jimmy as well as two of the bodies, I don't need them all.

I also have a RG520 in parts and enough other hardware for two more Ibys.

natural body with color matching pickups to the pyramid inlays.
