Talking "Design an RG 470" contest :D

I put this title 'cause the topic of this thread is "quite" similar to Mr. Vai's contest.
Ok guys, my Ibanez rg 470 is gettin' very very old, so I decided that it's time to change some details and improve its quality since it was my first guitar (2001 - Japan) as well as a cheap one.
I think i'm going to mount on it Di Marzio Evolution pickups and an original Floyd Rose, gold as the new tuners and nut.
The color of the guitar is black ( http://www.nimrock.com/Dear-Ibanez-RG470.jpg ) but i think i'm going to repaint it white (the headstock will remain black because i don't want the ibanez logo to be removed).
That is my "raw-idea" but off-course i'm open to advices, critics, and suggestions (colors, hardware, electronics etc.).
The best idea will become reality on my guitar, but you're not going to win any prize i'm sorry

P.s. Try somehow to forgive me for my BAD english

Thank you

Swirl it, body and headstock. You can always get the Ibanez logo done again. Put in Pink/Purple/Green DiMarzio's (depends on colour of swirl), coloured knobs to match and stick in an OFR or a Gotoh Floyd Rose.
