How/Where can I get a Custom made Ibanez RG ??

I've been playing Ibanez for 8 years now and still love my RG350 after putting a DiMarzio Super Distortion and Air Norton in it.
Last year I bought a black 1997 RG 550 and had all the hardware replaced with gold/brass (video on my YouTube "Guitarist6494")

Anyway, I've never been a fan of the basswood Ibanez uses.
It's always intrigued me making a custom RG with all mahogany body, neck through, 2 Humbuckers (no middle single coil) with DiMarzio Super Distortion, Floyd Rose Original (if possible), and a thicker neck as appose to the traditional thin Ibanez necks.

I know this may fit under the category of the RGT but I want a thicker neck.

If anyone knows how/where you can get a custom made Ibanez, any help would be appreciated.

Thanks
-Alex

Re: How/Where can I get a Custom made Ibanez RG ??

Not neck through, but if you can find an RGR580, you'll get most of what you want. Mahogany body, HSH, Bolt on neck with the AANJ. There aren't a whole lot of them out there as they were a Japanese domestic model from 97-02, but if you can find one from 00-02, you'll get the MIJ wizard II neck, and that is thicker than a standard wizard neck, even from that period.

Also, why would you even bother with an OFR when you can get an Edge or Lo pro, which are vastly superior designs?

Thanks, I?ve never even heard of that model untill now.

It looks good it seems to only be available with a maple fretboard?

Also your right about the Edge design, I just prefer the feel of a real Floyd. The bar feels more solid to me, and I like nether greater angle of the Bar (being fussy I know lol)

Ibanez does not offer custom shop or custom made services.

It only has a maple board, which means if you can find one on Ishibashi or some place that ships overseas, you can get it. I would have recommended the RG580 (same model but with a rosewood board and no reverse headstock), but because of the rosewood, it cant get shipped out of Japan (no shops over here want to bother with CITES, so you're screwed on that front). I have 2 RGR580s and they are KILLER guitars.
