Custom Jackson or Ibanez

Hey

I got a quote on a custom jackson RR1 for Ä4000, its neck thru, EMGs, 24 fret, ebony, floyd rose, bevel graphics (is it worth it)?

I was wondering if I could get a custom Ibanez?

Preferably an RG with the same specs and binding around the whole guitar and reverse headstock.
Minus the graphics.

How much would that be?

Thanks

Re: Custom Jackson or Ibanez

Custom Ibanez guitars are only made for endorsees so theres only one way to get a custom Ibanez

People on this forum can tell you more, and one of our members HAS a custom shop Ibanez (hey James).

Re: Custom Jackson or Ibanez

Ä4000?! Holy ****! Why don't you try getting in touch with Matt from Matt's Music, i'm pretty sure he can quote you wayy cheaper than that.

And if you are looking for a custom RG, check with EKG or LGM.

All the mentioned names can be found on top(Jemsite's Sponsors)

Just remember that a custom RG is still going to be an RG. (not that theres anything wrong with that) But a Custom RR1 is going to worth it in the long run. Get the RR1..............

hahaha

but anyway, it's not like it's randy's RRV, it's just another RR1 model that thousands of people have, but i'm sure you could get LGM to make you an RR1 for cheaper than $4000 anyway.

Re: Custom Jackson or Ibanez

dude, i don't mean to dis you or anything

but he said 4000 EURO's not dollars...

let's see that would make 5,192.72 USD

That, to me at least, is waaaaaaaaaaaay to much money to spend on a Jackson unless you've got money coming in truckloads.

Re: Custom Jackson or Ibanez

I don't think getting a brand new custom shop Jackson is cost effective unless you are using the "$250 other body shape" option. Your RR1 looks pretty stock, so I'd save the money.
As for the custom RG, there are a lot of RGs already. Determine what you really want out of your custom, and see if Ibanez currently makes it, or did recently. If so, get one of those. A high end RG is a mighty guitar, so that would be my first choice.
If you can't find you want, then I'd suggest a total custom, and not a copy. Your two choices aren't exactly similar (other than being electric), so think about what it is you really want and get someone to build that for you. Keep in mind though, that custom guitars, including Jacksons, can have you waiting 9 months or more for arrival. Look at LGM's Leviathans, they are very similar to Jems in regards to neck feel (or so I'm told), but with more options and a unique shape. Check other builders too, if you want. But first, decide what you really want, not which of two is best. then, you're half way home.

YMMV

Re: Custom Jackson or Ibanez

Hey

Anybody ordered a custom Jackson Rhoads if so how much did you get quoted?

I think I am getting ripped off by the dealer in Ireland.

I need rough estimates on prices (if available)

Re: Custom Jackson or Ibanez

Email Matt of Matt's Music, a sponsor listed above. Matt will give you the best price he can, and he's a standup guy with mountains of Jackson knowledge.

Yeah exactly what I was thinking. Im not that fond of Jacksons, and Id only spend that kind of cash on a guitar if I was a millionare.

Re: Custom Jackson or Ibanez

I am opting to get the custom Ibanez or jackson from the States because in Ireland they wont do it unless they get 50% profit. (If you know what I mean)

I emailed Matts Music and Im waiting on a reply.

Thanks
