Where can I buy an RG body?

I plan on building a custom white RG, and the first matter of business is the body. I would like to get a white AANJ body, HSH pickup route of course. I know I can probly find it on the bay, but I would like to deal with someone a bit more reliable, like say Rich. Does he sell bodies? I looked all over Ibanezrules but couldnt find any. Thanks for the help in advance guys!

How about posting in the classifieds with WTB or have Legacy One make one for you. There are also numerous respectable sellers on the bay who are selling new and used ones. AshBass is a great choice.

Look through those before you buy anything from Legacy One.

Christopher Woods makes good bodies, from what I hear.

Chris is also very busy. Expect a long wait time if you order from him.

Ok, so Im not buying from LegacyOne. From the looks of their work, their banner shouldnt even be aloud on this site. That neck was absolute crap.
So whos Christopher Woods?

Chris Woods is a good luthier, but as I said, he's a very busy guy. You can check out his website here: http://homepage.mac.com/bigvelvetdog/home.html

I have two Chris Woods bodies, and I am very happy with them.

Re: Where can I buy an RG body?

I've known a few guys who have been pretty happy with EKG. Eddie Kolesar (the "EK" in "EKG" - sorry if that's not spelled spelled right Eddie) is a member on the site here, too.

No, I just snagged it off Chris' site. I have one that is the same as the photo and another with no monkey grip.

Both bodies are alder, and sitting at Sims waiting on paint.
