Help regarding a project I want to make a reality!

Hello all,
I am an avid Ibanez user, and am planning my next Ibanez purchase. I have a '91 UV7BK custom, and a S7420 w/ the H-S-H configuration. I've been dying for a UV777GR, but I have plans to make it a hot-rodded custom like my other two. My ideas are as follows:
-Mohagony body routed for Lo-Pro Edge 7, bridge p.u. and volume pot only (pickup and pot mounted to pickguard)
-Maple neck w/ 3-color pyramid inlays
-Monkey Grip & Lion's Claw on body, Lion's Claw painted pink
-Bridge pickup color - pink, same for ClipLock strap
-Body & Headstock finish: Neon green w/ black swirl
-Pickguard & truss rod cover: Black w/ green swirl

In layman's terms, a JEM777LNG, but minus the mid & neck pickups, the 5-way switch and the tone pot, and swirl it!!!!! At the same time, Rich at IbanezRules recomended that I jst get a UV777GR, and go from there. But, I'd wanted to do it all from scratch. Can anyone give me some insight on this crazy idea of mine? I've always had this thing for "The Green Meanie" , and the green UV, but wanted something more to my tatses . Feel free to reply, or drop me a line via email.

Just a suggestion...

Depending on if you want AANJ or original NJ:
AANJ: Grab a 7620 neck
ONJ: Grab an original Universe neck. If you go for this type, although near impossible to find, someone who has JUST the UV GR neck is best, but any would work.

Send the neck to ATD. ATD has bodies now, so order one of the bodies, and have it swirled by them as well. Sending the neck will allow for the headstock to get swirled in same "batch."

If you cannot find a GR neck, then you can either send the neck to LGM (banner up top) and have him pull the fretboard and throw a maple board on, and then do the inlays, and then he can fire it over to ATD. LGM can also paint and clear a pickup for you while the neck is settling-hehehe. (Jeremy loves to paint stuff pink <g>).

Between the two of them, they should be able to do almost anything you can afford. Nikki
