I threw this together over the weekend.

Body by Chris Woods
Paint by Patrick Sims
The rest by Ibanez

Special thanks to Rich for getting me the correct pick guard.

Sorry, I am not a photographer.

Re: I threw this together over the weekend.

Great colour, and I like the maple neck against it, but that pick guard looks very out of place to me.

Looks good, but I agree about the pickguard.

Re: I threw this together over the weekend.

+1 re the pickguard.

Is it front routed or rear routed? If it is rear routed, you may as well put a clear guard on it. Looks very nice otherwise.

Re: I threw this together over the weekend.

A black pickguard would create a nice contrast.

Re: I threw this together over the weekend.

Please, a black pickguard would look like every other LNG out there. ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

I wanted more of a look inspired by this guitar.

Re: I threw this together over the weekend.

Plain white would be an improvement on the pearloid IMHO.

Re: I threw this together over the weekend.

I agree about the pickguard...
I wouldn't go for black...but I think it would look better if it was a plain white guard.

The perloid looks a bit strange to me. But it's your guitar.

The rest is awsome by the way. Love the colours and the maple.

Then get a plain white one

I think its great, but the pelaroid really seems odd there
