7 project for the summer...need help on finding parts!

I have hatched a grand idea. Ive always loved the look of the original Bad Horsie and "Neville," but Ive always thought that itd look even better as a 7. So why not build one?!
Ok, so Im going to take some random RG model with a Floyd and pickups set into the body. Ill shave it off to natural, put on a satin clear coat for protection, and then instal some new cream pickups: Blaze and Air Norton 7. Also, cream knobs and switch tip.
Now Ive got some problems:
1) Where could I find a black 7 string RG pickguard? Id like to instal it over the pickups edges, but still keep them in the body, if you understand what I mean. I just like the looks. So hmm. That could prove difficult to find.
2) Where could I find a gold Lo Pro 7?
3) How much would it cost to get pryamid inlays professionaly installed? That would be a possible side, but itd be sweet. and who would do it for me? Im sure there arent many that do that (for cheap.)
I think thats about it. Thanks in advance!

Do you have an RG7 body to start with, or are you looking for one of those as well?

Re: 7 project for the summer...need help on finding parts!

well for finding a gold LP7, thats going to be almost impossible unless you buy brand new, and they are like $350 new.. but first off they arent too common, and most people who have them, dont wanna get rid of them lol

I spent a year looking for any LP7s.. so hard to find, I managed to get 2 but still, thats after a year of looking lol

Re: 7 project for the summer...need help on finding parts!

Well, Ive been borrowing my buddys RG 7 that I might buy to do this project for the past couple of days, and Im having second thoughts. I play a JS1000BP, and after going between the RG and JS, I noticed how incredibly much I love the JS body. The RG is kinda...clunky. Im still deciding, but Im thinkin Ill just go with the JS2000 on Ibanezrules.
