Re: The BIGGEST endorsement of all.... IBANEZ!!!

So maybe you guys could help me out in figuring what guitar I should have custom made? I love the JEM (obviously) but I want a guitar of my own identity. So I figured a RG shape body. I am thinking though of the 2 HUM config with the push/pull volume and tone knobs like the JS... Alder body... trying to think of a cool paint job. I know Dave and Rob have some cool custom paint jobs.... Suggestions?

Congratulations!!! I have a Marshall endorsement and hopefully I'll be joining you as an Ibanez endorser soon, if some stuff I'm working on pans out!

I think you should get a sunburst in neon colours.

Re: The BIGGEST endorsement of all.... IBANEZ!!!

How does one become endorsed by a company. Do you approach them, or do they just approach you ?

congrats by the way, that is a dream come true

Actually I dont consider myself any better than anyone else. ESPECIALLY when you have aliens out there like Dave Martone! lol If you have not heard of him you HAVE to go to his website www.davemartone.com He is INCREDIBLE and has some amazing players doing guest appearances on his next album. His fulltime drummer is the drummer from Nickelback.
I just love what I do and have ALLOT of fun doing it. Finally being a full time musician is reward enough but endorsements like this just make it all the more incredible!!

Sometimes a company will approach you. I only ever had this happen one time and that was when I had my endorsement through Peavey. Aside from that I have had to contact each company and send them press kits and whatnot. They usually want an 8x10, bio, current CD, a show schedule, and a copy of any reviews you have received.

Congrats Rick!

+1 on the neon sunburst idea... BUT, I reckon if you can get it, 2 different types of flamed top (half and half), each half painted with different but complimentary transparent colours...

Now that would be unique and HOT.
