Why?

Hey,
as I heard the body of RG 1527 RB is made out of 4 Parts? And another two wooden parts glued from the top and bottom that you donīt see it?
On a german board one guy gave two of his 1527s to a guitar builder to refinish them...
If you speak german...pics of finished guitars inside...

Re: Why?

The thread is 267 pages long. Where are the pics? There is no way I would look through it, and I doubt anyone else would either.

Multi-piece bodies are common, this is nothing new. It's cheap to produce, that's why they do it. It sucks. But that's life, and life sucks sometimes.

Multi-piece bodies are new to me never heard that Ibanez is producing like that.
Even my old cheap 7420 is made out of one part...

Re: Why?

Really? You are very lucky to get a one-piece body!

Thanks for the link.

These look great. I love the one with cream pickups.

How do you know it's one piece, and not four with a top and back piece to cover it up?

Re: Why?

Multi piece bodies are less prone to cracking, warping, cupping, etc.
