2 custom guitar ideas

just interested to see which one is more popular with you all. I designed them both of course so its pretty damn hard to decide which one to pursue. so here they are. and sorry about the S not having the right pickup selector or the jack on the front. couldnt get it done with MS paint, but it mostly looks like an S series

Re: 2 custom guitar ideas

the first ones the money guitar. The green logos a little bold for me, but the neck compensates nicely!

Red one, but go with a black logo.

Re: 2 custom guitar ideas

the red RG :
I'd throw all white pickups combo ( cream is also OK), solid black hardware and logo.
knobs and truss rod cover will be matched with the pickups.

Re: 2 custom guitar ideas

I alway try to get three colors on a custom guitar, besides black.
In this case-
Red - Body and Headstock
White - Pickups (not all see below), trussrod cover
Green, or is it Yellow? - Ibanez Logo, Pickups H-S-H Green White Combo Coils WG/W/GW
Any Combo of Whate and green for the knobs and switch tip

JEM style jack on edge of body

Re: 2 custom guitar ideas

I don't really like one more than the other, I don't like any of them at all.

Just the reversed head are a absolute no, no in my book.

Re: 2 custom guitar ideas

red one for sure,, either change the knobs to match logo, or change logo color to match knobs. I like the neck on the green on though just not a fan of the body style.

Re: 2 custom guitar ideas

Personally, I like the red one. Although I wouldn't do the green logo. Silver would look tough or black. This coming from a guy with an RG321 that has pink pickups and knobs with green f-holes.

Agreed. There's nothing like taking the opportunity to create a truly custom guitar and having it look like you threw someting together out of spare parts !!!

I'd say the S series has the better colour scheme, but I wouldn't miss the opportunity to match the headstock colour to the body.
