I Need Your Opinion

real simple. I already have the pickguards laying around from other times. The necks can both be had for under $200 (a local 2nd hand music store chain has a 350mdx for $270 and a 270dx for $190).

Cost is not an issue because it will be negated by the selling of the "donor" guitar.

My question is simple. Which of the 4 choices is your favorite combo.

3 or 4. Don't go for the ones with a white pickguard with that colour. And why that colour? It's sickening! :P

I like the one on the far right--If Brad Gillis was an Ibanez player, that's what he'd have!

I'm curious about that color choice, too.

it is slightly deeper than in the RG builder.

it is a deep wine color.

and I love a deep maroon. It isnt a common color, it means my guitar isnt the 1,234,432,542,245,521,456,744,234,647,986th black or white guitar out there.

#4 all the way. I just never could get into colored sharktooth inlays on maple fretboards, even on the 770s. Dots look classic and classy. As for the pickguard, white just looks strange to me with a red that deep.

Re: I Need Your Opinion

i think the black pick guard will be swallowed up by the deeper red color... on the RG builder it looks great. but i think on the guitar it will be less noticeable.

i think the white looks great, but i really like 3.
