Vai's Flame Guitar

Not thinking about doing this or anything, but could you cut the shape of the flame guitar out of an RG body??!?! Is there enough wood?

Just saw one on ebay and this thought crossed my mind.

I think there might be too much wood missing from the control knobs cavity to be able to use a RG body.
Also filling the two single (RGx60) or the neck humbucker and single(RGx50) cutouts might be a problem.

There were these kramers with a banana headstock and a single bridge humbucker/ single volume knob - all backrouted that would be perfect to butcher for this effect.
Charvel also had a similar guitar, but the headstock was pointy like the Jacksons headstock.
