Re: Ibanez Rescue Institute: RG550

When you say it'll need a fret job do you mean replacement wire or just a good cleaning and polishing? The one closeup pic you posted doesn't show any grooves or real wear, just a ton of grime.

I love stuff like this - can't wait to see it in progress!

Re: Ibanez Rescue Institute: RG550

Kspeed, I didnt show the grooves in the photos but theres are 4 frets with groves in the G sting range.

kotornut, only problem with doing an RG body like that one in the link is this body is front routed with a pick guard. Unless I found away to radi it and it looking good.

I think you could get away with an in between version of it so a pickgaurd would still fit corectly. I was really just trying to give you a bit of inspiration to branch out and definately don't just swirl it.

Everybody swirls now so that isnt in my plan.

Re: Ibanez Rescue Institute: RG550

+12345 on not swirling. That said, what do you plan to do instead? Anything unusual for an RG, like maybe a sunburst of some sort?

And as for the frets, what wire do you plan to use - good ol' 6105?
