Jem project again (Bad Horsie prototype lookalike)

Here's Vai's guitar:


And here's my project so far. 7VWH neck, alder 2-piece body, Ibanez Edge. It also has cosmo black tuners and locking nut. Green knobs look bad on that. Didn't have any other ones when assembled it. Not gonna paint it. Just clearcoat.





Opinions?

It is looking very nice, coming together very nice. one suggestion is using gold or chrome hardware and maybe a different pickguard if you want to make it slightly different.

Why don't you just Tung Oil it instead of clear coat it.

Well, it's always an option. Don't know yet.

Bought it here on classifieds. Made by Richard Fay. Don't know much about him, but seems like a decent body. Actually it's rear routed, but I'll keep the BWB pickguard there now. Maybe, if I get a better idea, I'll get a clear pickguard there.

And the neck is a genuine 7VWH neck. Just sanded the headstock yesterday. White looked good, but the golden logo is something I don't prefer.

Nice one, i think with the green knobs a black headstock with green Ibanez logo would look good.

It may look something like this if you try the plan above......
