Talking Ibanez Fireman project!

Hello Friends,

I absolutely LOVE Paul Gilberts Fireman... but i really do not Love the price of it! Not even a replica model is within my price league.

So i came to conclusion that i wanted to make my own! My only struggle is finding the parts. Could anyone suggest where i can find suitable parts? I found a body, which has the 2 humbuckers, perfect, a floyd rose bridge position? Either way, 100ish for the body.

I Need mainly the Neck! Pickups and everything else i can get. I JUST NEED THE NECK!

Anybody have a suggestion?

Thanks alot,
Dazzerr

Re: Ibanez Fireman project!

There are a ton of suitable necks on 3Bay right now. Choose the pickups that you want. If you got the body I think you did, then it's routed for an original Edge--another easy find on the Bay...

As with all other four-letter words--no, you can't type that here.

Ah, okay. I've just noticed that. I didn't know if it was just a thing people did or it was actually against TOS

@Phatsaq

Thanks for your support, I would almost kill to get hold of a fireman but the price is ridiculous... So ill make my own!! haha!

Please let me know if you ever find anything. Much appreciated!

@AlaskaBat

There are a ton of Ibanez necks of course, but i dont want one from a PGM or standard RG/JEM or something... I would prefer something as close as i can get to the fireman neck. I love its shape, very beefy.

I have just learnt that it is forbidden to say that 4 letter word, which is a disadvantage as im guessing you cannot post example links from *Bay either... Any chance you could give me a clue on where to find these suitable necks? Preferably on the 3Bay of course



Thank you both for your replies

Re: Ibanez Fireman project!

No, you cannot post links to the Bay either, as described in the rules. Just go to the Bay and use the search function. You'll be hard-pressed to find an exact replacement. If that is what you're set on, then you'd be better off forking out a bunch of cash for a custom-made replica.
