Square peg meet round hole. I vote to veto your plan
Life experience has taught me the best solution is always the simplest one. Always, without fail.
Do you have to have an Ibanez? You can't learn/adapt to playing a hardtail axe? That opens up many more & better buying choices. I humbly suggest you consider them and can pretty much guarantee you'll be happier in the long run
Thank you very much for your input. Heres a little deeper explanation as to why im stuck onto what im stuck on. I have played multiple USA made PRS Customs and Standards, ESP Extended scale guitars, Jackson DKMG series, Schecters, and numerous other random guitars that have come my way.
the PRS bridges are garbage to me for my hand. i hate their feel for the same reason i hate most hardtails, the saddles dont sit level, they arch like the body does. Their necks are too thick for my hand, the best one ive felt was their Wide-Thin, but even when i am comfortable with their necks' thickness, when it comes to their radius, there arent any that are 430mm. This is the same for every other model listed above, the neck radius.
This is the same reason that I cannot stand playing any production model Ibanez guitars. There are many production model Ibanez guitars that meet my needs, for everything except for their radius. Even at 400mm which is the production and premium model radii Ibanez use, the Prestige level and Jcustom levels are the only ones equipped with 430mm necks. I havent tried transplanting a prestige neck onto a production model Ibanez yet. I have a very nice production model, an Ibanez RGA72TQMZ that literally just gathers dust because of the neck radius. If I dont like how a guitar feels, im not going to want to play it for 6 hours at a time. So even if i can successfully transplant a prestige neck onto a production or premium model Ibanez, im still left with the issue of the trem and how my palm feels against it. The RGA has an Edge Zero II, and my RG2770Z has an Edge Zero. THeir saddles feel very close to an Edge LoPro, but their string spacing is different/wider. The only trem that feels good to me is an Edge LoPro. I also require a trem because of the fine tuners, it cuts my retuning time considerably.
My required body wood has to be Mahogany with an Edge LoPro, because I know what pickups to put in it to achieve my desired tone. I can't use basswood because I cant find a set of pickups that will achieve the same tones that i can get with mahogany + Tremonti Treble (or a Seymour Duncan JB, they are equals in my eyes for being my #1 fav), so that eliminates a whole hell of a lot of my options. Alder gives me the same results as Basswood just with more highs. Ash sounds hollow to me.
The absolute best feeling 6 string ive played was an RG3120, which was mahogany+maple, and an Edge LoPro. The neck was incredibly thin and hurt to play, but it was the best BODY+PALM feeling of any guitars ive played. Best feeling guitar Neck wise is my current neck which is the
Wizard HP Prestige 2010–2018 648mm/ 25˝" nut:43mm body:58mm thick 1st:18mm thick 12th:20mm radius:430mmR/ 17", but really any nowadays prestige necks are comfortable as long as they are 430mm radius.
So I am trying to piece together this creation in the most cost effecient way possible.
