By the way, how much does something like that cost to do??
Also, how much does it cost to have the ibanez logo redone, and how do u go about doing that?
U da man gabe!
Thanks for the comments. I've been working on this project for about 3 years now. Then neck and body are complete, with the exception of some routing that needs to be done on the body. I sent it off to Eddie last week and hopefully he can get working on it once I send him a check. I have all the hardware. Next comes the paint which of course Darrin will do.
The main reason for the delay in the project was the whole mess with getting Harper to finish the body. He did the neck which is incredible! But the body was not what I ordered and it took about 1 year to get it.
As far as the Ibanez logo - you can find people to do that. I'm not going to reveil my source because it can be a legal issue. Harper didn't even cut the headstock of the neck all the way because of legal issues. I did that myself...
As far as costs, here's an estimate:
Neck = $700
Body = $300 (I know, I got ripped off)
Additional Body Mods = $100
Pickups = $300
Gold hardware = $300
Paint = $300 (or so I'm guessing)
Shipping = $100 (for all the places I've shipped these parts!)
Total = around $2100
Should be complete for Jemfest UK, or so I'm hoping!
