Finished my Ibanez custom :)

Finished it up, I posted a ****load of pics of all the steps along the way.. So why not post a few of it finished?

It needs a few more coats of lacquer, but it's too cold for that **** so I'm waiting for the spring. I decided not to put the volume/tone on the front.. I've got an idea of what I kinda want, I have them on the back of the guitar.

Re: Finished my Ibanez custom :)

You should get some of those flat knobs, or somehow adopt the sideways/roller idea for that guitar so that your idea can be novel rather than just pretty cool.

Other than that, it looks seriously sweet. I remember seeing Karl Sanders with a custom flame top V that had no controls whatsoever.. just plug in and play.. and it looked mean as all ****.

You could put the selector switch on the back. When a pretty lady walks by when your jamming you can switch pickups.

Great maple top. Love the natural look on it. Hope she plays as good as she looks.

Pretty weird that the pots are on the back -wouldn't that be awkward and uncomfortable while playing live? Looks great though. You did a nice job!

Yeah what about vol. swells. It would look pretty odd playing Cathedrals.

Re: Finished my Ibanez custom :)

Love the finish, I don't understand the pots either though? I adjust my volume a lot when I'm playing depending on the sound I want to achieve surely this would be almost impossible?

Re: Finished my Ibanez custom :)

Hey thanks for all the comments guys About the pots, They're not really too uncomfortable as they sit on my belly , but it is kinda weird to get used to reaching around back to turn it up/down. If it gets too bad I can always cut the holes back out.. But I kinda like the look of it

I don't really play live much anymore, but if I do, maybe I can explore volume pedals
