Ibanez/Warmoth Hybrid Flying V

Hello,
One old school square heel Ibanez 550 Wizard neck:


One Warmoth insanely light swamp ash v body routed for 1 hb and original floyd:


To make it work with the neck the body needed some routing. The neck pocket had to come down a mm or 2.
Also the RG style shallow channel for the fretboard overhang was cut in. Once that was done I routed for the neck pickup and drilled a hole for the wiring.
The Trem route and post holes also needed expanding slightly to fit a lo pro edge:

Result:


Black stain with no grain filler, a few coats of satin poly, shielding paint in the cavities and rubbed down with steel wool:


Headstock got an ash veneer and new decal. Poly and steel wool like the body:


And done!:

Pretty sick. What I wanna know is how you made those inlays disappear!

They didn't disappear. Just replaced with black ones.

Figured that might be the case. The lighting in the picture makes them blend right in so well you'd never notice without a good look.
