Yea but if this company makes a 7 string neckthru body for even $200, thats much better cause you can customize it to what you want.. I might look into getting the agile one but the EMGs realy bug me.. and I want to refinish it to a certain color so it might be pointless for me to pay $600 for it then refinish it, put in a Edge trem route, fill pups to route passives, etc. Esp with agile's horrible quality control, and no USPS shipping for Canadians (ie we pay close to $1000 after customs)

Re: Anyone want to build an S model?

Too bad they don't have any hard tail Strat bodies. I'd love to find one of those cheap. I like the GFS pickups, I have a set of the retrotron Nashvilles and they sound great

Well, right now GFS is just selling the stock from a factory they bought out, so whatever's there is there. Apparently the plan is to produce their own line of bodies and necks, which is cool if the price is right. It seems like GFS (much like Agile, that's why I thought of them) seem pretty open to customer input, so if they get enough lobbying, who knows. Not alot of love for 7-stringers from GFS so far, but that might change.

Re: Anyone want to build an S model?

yah =/ I emailed.. I would definately pick up that neckthru 6 but I just recieved my RGT.. Kinda wish I saw the GFS first, cause $100 compared to $400 is a good difference, could refinish it to how I wanted too and etc.

Ibanez Style Contour Body- Metallic Blue- HSH, Floyd- 5 Way

Stunning new finished bodies in the familiar sculpted Ibanez style. These are super lightweight pooplar, done in a beautiful metallic Ice Blue, and ready to assemble.

The 5 way slot is cut for one of those plastic 5-way plates as used on many new guitars- We do not have them in stock but they are available, or you can cut your own out of black pickguard material if you're skilled.

We will include the backplate cover for free. This fits our rounded end necks- the ones with the overhang- A Square end neck would need mods to fit.
It's made of pooplar, no wonder they are so cheap!
