That how the edge looks when it's setup right... Anyway you should trim the strings a little closer! Really nice guitar though man!

Re: MY Ibanez RG 450 FULL Customization

Now if I remember correctly the old school 450 and 470 block heel bodies has the really clunky non countored heel (I have a 93' 470L body with that, wicked clunky) so if so, did he give it the Jem Sculp treatment? But man, thats hot, I wish the pickguard didn't hide all that awesome burl top.
