1980 Ibanez dt 50 Saint Seiya custom

Well this guitar has returned from hell. It was almost destroyed in a fr route that went wrong. Lucky for me the original post holes where 3 quarter still there so the posts will go into wood not the plugged cavity. I am still a bit undecided about what bridge i want but i was thinking either schaller 475 or a gotoh 510. There will be a black single pickup cover for the neck pup. Nothing is bolted on yet its just for the pictures.

I got inspiration for this from a song by animetal usa ''Pegasus Gensou'' AKA saint seiya. Naturally i had to convert it to Humbucker single

Notice how the graphic runs off the edge.

Re: 1980 Ibanez dt 50 Saint Seiya custom

This project was a challenge right from the start. In the end the result turned out a little more vintage style than i hoped but overall i am pretty happy with it. I couldn't be bothered finding original cavity covers so i made my own. I am quite chuffed with the jack plate if a say so myself.

What does it mean "fr route"? Looks very cool! I especially like that you have an image on the back of the headstock! ^ ^

Nice work man!
As for tremolo I would go with EDGE or Lopro EDGE.
