+1 - there are some incredible flip flop paints out. How about the one they used in XXX?

(Edit - kneejerk support of the suggestion without checking it's been done already. - excellent colour)

OK, so I finally finished this, new pickguard is here and it now looks like this:



Quite happy with, only I have a spare Sharktooth wizard neck and I kind of like, how it looks on that guitar...



What do you guys think?
(P.S.: Maybe the maple neck would look cool in a RG3120 type, light blue flame top body... )

I think I am going to try the sharktooth neck with the next string change, to see how it looks and sounds... the guitar has a very nice attack and sustain right now, especially when in single coil mode (push pull tone pot). If that is lost with the rosewood board it will go maple again...

I put on the sharktooth neck, I really like how it looks and plays so it is staying for the time being...

Yeap, looks a lot better. The teeth compliment well with the pelaroid, and the binding adds class to the whole thing. Congrats dude! =)

Take her outside for some sunshine pics when you can, and be sure to post pics of the 3120ish body with the maple neck

Thanks!
The 3120ish body isn't a reality yet... Although I don't think it will be long until I order one.
I like Magnus Olsson's guitar so it will be something along these lines. For the moment I have the neck, all chrome Edge trem and all complementing hardware including a chrome Ibanez neck plate. A body and pickups and it will be ready
