Trying to think of a unique custom shape..

I wanna think of a unique shape, that looks amazing, is comfy, and satisfys my needs.

I used to really like extreme shapes, esp the Kelly and BC rich Stealth, but they look kinda funky and look too odd in alot of settings, such as a Jazz show, light-pop show, etc. I want a versitile guitar that can do it all.

So heres why its in the Ibanez forum. I really love RGs, but love the thinness of S's.. Soo what if we combined the two??

A Superstrat that is pointy, like the RG, yet is more rounded, and THINNN like a S? Would something like that be cool? Not to mention, original?? Or has this already been done (In which case, show me pics!)

Heres a really bad/quick mockup, I didnt blend colors together, but just took horns and lined everything up, I think it looks pretty neat.. What do you guys think?



Gimme your input.. Or any ideas on how I could improve it.

Re: Trying to think of a unique custom shape..

I think thats awesome. I have an rg and the body is really thick. and heavy. since i got it my back has been hurting allot after like 30 minutes of playing. that might just be because im used to a gibson sg. but i thin you should try to make this guitar. or bring the idea to ibanez. who knows it may be out some day

Its not so much the RG body is too thick for me, I just love how the S feels, it just makes you wanna rip out crazy riffs. I dunnno tho, This is just an idea. Part of me is saying this is stupid.

Looks like an RGA, actually. There are a ton of carved super strats out there, so really the only difference is the deeper, slightly pointier horns, and that isn't the most hugely noticeable thing.

Re: Trying to think of a unique custom shape..

a RGA is more square.. the left side of the bodys "butt" (right under where your picking hand would go) is curved differently on the S body, so its not quite a RGA, although kinda similar.
