540P Neck-thru *prototype*? Any chances of a production model?

Re: Custom models pics from the Custom Shop?

kick ass!
Thank you Mr.Hosono.

now all you have to do is open up your custom shop to the public......

you know, just so the people who would normally go elsewhere can go to the real pros... you guys. if there wasnt big buisness in the custom world....why would every other major guitar brand have their own? and there is big buisness in customizing ibanez guitars, i mean most people on this forum have at least 1 personalized, and even if you charged a little more than a nominal fee, I know i wouldnt mind to pay my dues to my favorite guitar maker, and neither would most people on this forum, and thats why i love this site.


but back to the point. like the picture, would love to see more.

Hmmm, make it a hardtail and I may start buying Ibanez guitars again.

Re: Custom models pics from the Custom Shop?

So, Mr. Hosono, how about posting some pics of Steve Vai's or Joe Satriani's custom orders?

I was thinking pretty much the same thing. I'd want it to be a bolt-on, original Wizard profile, maple fingerboard with color matched dot inlays, and the original control layout. A Gotoh GTC101 Hardtail would be perfect, but if I could get one with a Lo Pro like that one, that would be OK too. --Jason

WOW! did you make that Tak?

But why is there such a big heel? Wouldn't this be better?

Re: Custom models pics from the Custom Shop?

The neck end heel was necessary because almost entire neck part is out from the body. without this neck heel there's nothing left at the neck / body joint. We wanted ultimate high fret accessibility.
