Custom 7?

Ok heres the deal, I've been guitarless for a while now, been playing some of my friends guitars and I gotta admit I miss it, so for the time being I applied at about 100 different places for a job, and with that money I wanna make a 7 custom, cause I played my friends 7620 and it was awesome, but there we're some things I'd wanna change about it, as well as alot of other Ibanez Guitars, it was great having a Jem but I need a custom.

So now I'm here to lay down idea's and get some input on what you think my ideal custom sounds like and if I should add or take away anything or whatever lol, by the way guy's I do plan to go through it cause.

A. as spoiled as it sounds, I get what I want, Jem, D-SLR Camera, along with other things.

B. I miss guitars

C. Money isn't really an issue with the jobs lined up (yes people have called back lol) and I don't gotta worry about school for a while since I'm not in school right now, and I can just put it towards the custom

ok here we go

I want, A 7 String RGA
Mohagany body
maple quilt top.
dragon burst (ala rob balducci)
17MM 1st fret 19MM 12th fret super thin Maple fret board (possibly birdseye)
scalloped last 4 frets lol
Edge Lo Pro
Reverse matching headstock
Offset abalone inlay.

Have no decided on pups and other minor details






ok....go....

Re: Custom 7?

it's all good dude, 2k is worth paying if it means a custom.

Main issue with me is neck's cause I have rather small hands, now I love Jem neck's cause I've had 2 Jem's and a UV, but the Jem neck I really loved was my DBK neck it was 17-19mm and ibanez doesn't really offer that anymore, and they don't offer it on a 7.

Re: Custom 7?

chris woods is pretty backed up from when I last talked to him. I think my neckthru 7 is one of the last hes doing thats not his "own designs".. and hes outsourcing the neck for mine too so it even makes it less of his work.. so I dunno.

try tho. I guess.

Dont think he does paintjobs, or least not cheap lol

Re: Custom 7?

no idea. best bet is to get a Carvin neckthru blank, or a neckthru blank from someone and build it yourself. Im basically limited to that option for my 2nd idea =/

well you could always go with another company like KxK / Jackson / BC rich / Schecter / ESP... but they probably wouldnt build you anything that is similar to Ibanez, and no use of a LoPro

yeah, that's exactly my thoughts, but I was thinking I got just a bit before I can lay down the $$$ for the thing, I'll try Chris wood's then, hopefully he's not too busy.
