RATE MY RG CUSTOM!

I thought I'd get ur feedback on my new RG, and I thought it'd be cool for other jemsite members to post their modded Ibanez's. It takes a some nuts or a lack of intellect to take an already near perfect guitar and personalize it(beat the sh!t out of it I mean) in order to call it your own. I dont know about you, but I got tired of waiting for the guys at Ibanez Head office to call and offer the endorsment deal...so here goes

`Specs:
Neck thru 5 piece body:mahogany, walnut, maple
Abalone sharktooths,
Dimarzio Paf Pro Neck, Steves Special in the bridge

Re: RATE MY RG CUSTOM!

Very nice mate. Was it originally a production model, or did you build it?

Re: RATE MY RG CUSTOM!

Can't really rate a guitar without playing it, so i suggest you send it to me to give it a thorough testing

Looks nice though

Re: RATE MY RG CUSTOM!

Thanks for the feedback. Yeah it is a production model, I think a RGt42 or something to that effect. With the 5 piece body it's remarkably close to the Prestige version, minus the trem and the pups. I refinished the top in a combo of oil based finishes, mainly a red mahogany stain with a satin poly overcoat. Turned out decent, and not a huge investment wasted if it didnt work.
Cheers
