So no matter what angle you are looking at it, you are seeing different colors. Fun project. I didn't really modify anything else. Just the paint.
DAMN! That's nice!!! Well done!

Re: Post pics of your own Custom modded Ibanez.

This is my customized 540R. It now has a custom neck with a D shaped neck, 6105 frets and a 10 to 12 inch compound radius with a 42mm nut. It has a DiMarzio Satchur8 in the bridge, and Fender Hot noiseless singles. It's essentially a Satriani, jeff beck fusion... but a little more on the satch side. Volume has a push pull with a high pass filter. The Tone has a push pull that coil taps the humbucker. Took a while to find a edge trem in good condition that didn't cost an arm and a leg!

Cool Re: Post pics of your own Custom modded Ibanez.

Ibanez S320 Nautical Theme - done with various shades of mahogany brown stains, a fine tipped sharpie for graphics and tinted wipe on poly for island areas/hardware pieces. Installed Dimarzio PAF Joe and Mo'Joe pickups.

Everything but the wood.

I bought a Jem JR with this plan. Now it's got an original edge, custom guard, and, I figured I'd make it extra personal with my off kilter humor. Found a guy on Ebay who makes custom decals. I'll try to upload more pics.

Re: Post pics of your own Custom modded Ibanez.

Here is my contribution - Old school - my 1986 Ibanez Roadster II RG140 (made in Japan) with a couple of mods;
Gotoh 510 trem (full replacement unit, the old trem arm broke off in the block)
Gotoh staggered locking tuners and tusq string tree
Pickups: (currently) Dimarzio AT100 in the bridge (although also had a Fred in there which i think works better in this guitar and will probably go back in soon)
Dimarzio Cruiser - Middle
Dimarzio Fast Track - Neck
Schaller strap locks and some chrome knobs
CTS Lefty taper 500K pots and orange drop cap
I de-glossed the neck a little so itís nice and smooth now.
Lastly, the one thing i always disliked was the output jack which was originally in the pickguard- so i routed it for a strat style jack - perfect!

With a clean and a polish i love this thing!! - the trem has really brought it back to life, divebombs and flutters and stays in tune incredibly well (especially considering its a a non-locking setup) honestly it is better now than it was new and iím having a hard time putting it down.

Re: Post pics of your own Custom modded Ibanez.

^^ Very nice mods and nice to see some Roadstar love - necks on these are pretty nice, eh? More proof that these guitars just need a bit of a hand to make them killer.

Agree about the jack - factory pickguard mount a bit of a fail but in terms of economic scaling for the range, probably made sense. I've looked at these on and off for years and, like you, felt that a better bridge and new jack placement would transform this model.

Agree with everything you said there, these were not a very expensive model so a few shortcuts on jack and bridge etc can be expected. The necks though are great, honestly it is one of the most comfortable (for my hands) iíve ever played. Itís still one of my favourite headstock shapes too !
I reckon i might get another 35 years out of it now ;-)
