Mahogany body / maple neck / rosewood board is my favorite combo of woods.
This one looks KILLER!
Very cool axe Todd.

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.

Looks sleek and classy...nice Todd! My RG520QS may have to shed it's murky TK. Thanks for the inspiration.

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:
How do you like the Steve's Special in mahogany? I love it in basswood, but for the 2 mahogany guitars I've got it in (the 2020 and 1680), it seems a bit dark.

|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.|

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.

|Two hands31||A beautiful guitar is like a beautiful woman, you just can't keep your hands off 'em, especially if they're yours. Congrats!|

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

Ibanez really should do more oiled mahogany guitars.
