Where to get custom Ibanez bodies?

Title says it all. I remember hearing of a few websites years ago, but long wait lists or I don't know if they're around?

I really want an Ibanez with a TOM, HSS or just H configuration and a flame top. Anyone know some decent people?

Build one! I am.

But, for real, I believe Jaden Rose does what you are looking for.

Are those routes for an Original Edge?
I was considering getting an unfinished Mahogany 565 body from him.

I just received a body from Nate Perle from e bay, and it needs A LOT of work to
make it even look semi-good. I spent all day filing and sanding his saw marks down
on my custom 540PII body, so you might want to go elsewhere if that's the quality
of his work IMO.

Same here. Mine is in rough shape. The inner neck pocket side is cracked off among other things! I thought it was a joke.

That's actually the best option right now, or having a skilled luthier do it. These days, there are so many resources available to folks for tons of DIY stuff. We always hear about people "jailbreaking" an IPhone, refurbishing their old NES to new condition, etc. There's nothing better than the felling of accomplishment when you do something on your own. Still, the tools and supplies required for building a guitar can be quite expensive, unless you already have some decent woodworking tools available.
