Custom made Iceman

Hello,
I have a RG350 neck (i replaced it with a reverse head neck) here and i think it is a good idea to find a body so i could make a new guitar.

I was browsing ibai and i found this : 150444044623

What do you think about that body ? I know it probably won't be as good as a true ibanez body, but it shouldn't be that bad ? Poplar is cool and it seems to be well made.

The seller said a Japanese neck would fit, but mine is from Korea, is that a problem ?

I don't want to make it as a high end guitar so i would like to put a licensed floyd in it, but the seller said it wouldn't fit.
He say that only an [FONT=Arial]Original Ibanez Edge, a Lo Pro Edge or a Edge Pro would fit.
What should i get so it work pretty well but don't cost me an arm.

Thanks you for you precious help !


François

Hard to tell a lot from just a photo, but it looks just like the neck pocket on the RG body I have sitting in my family room.

Re: Custom made Iceman

In my opinion, I don't think I would be able to live with myself knowing that it's not an Ibanez body. The person who makes these seems to do a pretty good job though.

I'm not really a fan of ibanez guitars, i only cares about the sound and the look.

Re: Custom made Iceman

What I mean is that I don't like having a real neck, and a fake body. I don't care what brand it is, as long as it's real. If you really like the look, then go for it.

Re: Custom made Iceman

Have you bothered to contact the seller to ask them that? I'm sure if anyone can tell you the maker can.

Ask for the measurements of the pocket and measure your neck.

i think the rest of us with chris woods and EKG bodies will be ok.
to each their own. aftermarket parts are a solid means to an end.
