Did anything other than the neck on that come from an RG?

I think it's pretty cool. I've always loved the vibe of Sea Foam Green strats.

The guitar is an old Rg440 from what I found out.Its an 80s model.It was routed for 3 humbuckers and was red.The pickups are a Duncan Pearley gates and a Duncan Distortion in the neck.All new hardware. The neck was scalloped by the guy that built it and repainted it.The pots are volume and tone and the tone taps both pups in all 3 positions that the switch moves.The tone is also a push pull knob.The guard is new and the tuners are Gotoh.

Aah, now i see. That full-body shot shows the cutaways better, which reveals it a little more clearly as a Roadstar II descendant. My first "real" guitar was an RS440.

You should get an Ibanez decal for the headstock, just for completeness.

I think it is a beauty. I thought it was great the first time you asked for opinions.

Looks pretty good to me, did you say you put a Duncan Distortion in the neck position?

i think it looks really retro, maybe because of the colour, reminds me of a Fender Jaguar style thing.
looks really nice

I think it looks really nice, Id defenitely play it! I love the scalloping too, it kinda reminds me of an 80's type strat/shred machine. Very nice indeed.
