Wink DC05: RG project 'Quilted'

Hi again...

this project is a RG stile body with a vine inlay on neck. I will name DC05 RG 'Quilted':




specifications DC05:

- Body: big and thick maple quilted top with mahogany back.
- Neck: maple with fingerboard quilted maple and vine inlays in color black, red and abalone.
- Bridge: Ibanez Lo Pro Edge tremolo.
- Tuners: Gotoh.
- Pickups: humbucker Seymour Duncan JB red on bridge, and Dimarzio Fast Track 2 red on neck.
- hardware: Black.
- Finished: natural brown.



I bought all parts, woods, tools, and i began to build the body.

May be that I'll do some little mistakes, but sure that they will be fixed by a true luthier .
Then, I'll take all parts to him and he'll make the rest of the work that I can't do.


best regards,
Dani.

I don't think the red goes well with your concept. I like the rest of it though. I look forward to finished photos.

???? sorry. i dont understand you.
do you talk about logo on headstock?
if yes,... it is only a photoshop and kisekae drawing. and it is not real. on the real guitar i dont know if i will put an ibanez logo. in other case, the logo will be correct.

Re: DC05. Building a 'RG custom Quilted'

holy moly, that is a thick maple top. like, nearly 2/3 of the guitar's body. i'd be interested in hearing how that sounds. i imagine it'll be pretty bright.

Re: DC05. Building a 'RG custom Quilted'

I assume it will shave down a bit, but I personally think it too thick.

yes... i suppose that it will sound bright. by this reason, i will put a Seymour Duncan JB. i think that this pickup has a little dark sound... uhmm... or no?

yes, it is too thick.... but for me, it's ok. it doesn't matter.
i love that big thick maple top. it will do a guitar very different than others.

the neck for help me build the body comes from a RGR580JBB.
but the real neck I'll put on this guitar will come from ETGuitars.
