Joel Lyndgohrd That is such a beautiful axe. Way to go!!!

ScottB Mahogany body / maple neck / rosewood board is my favorite combo of woods.

This one looks KILLER!

Very cool axe Todd.

guitarkatana Damn, that is one sweet looking guitar!!!!! Yeah, when ibanez guitars are natural finished woods, they are just stunning. We need to get Ibanez to do guitars like that more, with varieties of wood like korina, lacewood, swamp ash and all those beautiful woods.

Drew Beautiful... big fan of natural wood here. Only thing i'd have done differently? rounded the body edges a bit more- less metalish, more graceful.

Sweet axe.

I love it. I have it in the 2020 and the 520.

bduersch Hmmm... (Brent says as he eyes some used 520's on e-bay, thinking that the transparent blue finish was always a little too deep to really see the quilt top well enough)

I'd be half-tempted to do that to my 2020, but that'd be a little sacreligious given its current state:

Todd Crawford Thanks for the compliments guys. In all honesty, the pics dont really do it justice. Must be seen in person. As for stripping it, we used a heat gun. Works like a charm, not near as much of a mess other methods. The mahogany is awesome with the pickups, great tone and sustain. And yes Brent, it was a "happy accident". Kevin has done the same thing to a 2020X for himself, and before this, he stripped a RG770, put a sweet flame top on it(tung oiled and unfinished as well), and installed a Roland Midi system in it as well. I'll get pics of that next time I'm at his place.

Sometimes that's true even when they're NOT yours!

That's beautiful, Todd! From reading your description, sounds like somewhat of a happy accident. Kinda reminds me of an RG6CST!

How hard was it to strip the finish? I've debated getting an RG520 to strip and clear, but I figured the work to remove the finish would probably kill the grain.

That's really impressive Todd.

I'm a huge fan of the oiled mahogany tone, even more so after hearing Satch's new oiled mahogany 7 strings in action. I don't understand why this isn't the standard finish on these guitars?

If I had one, now that you've proved it can be done successfully, I'd definately do this to mine

darren wilson Classy!

Ibanez really should do more oiled mahogany guitars.
