Can anyone give me any info on their experiences with either of these custom shops? They both say they can do anything you can imagine, but do they mean that? Will they put an Ibanez bridge on if I ask nice enough?
Also, how much did your custom cost and what were it's specs?
IMPORTANT NOTE - Patrick Sims NO RELATION to Martin Sims the builder of Vai's LED guitar
The two just share a same background of guitar custom work and the same last name.

I was in the local music store up here ( Long and Mcquade in Oshawa ) playing 2 charvels.
One was one with a Floyd Rose Pro, which was actually quite nice, but not as good as my Edge imo...pullup/dive seemed less etc...anyways, it had a single Seymour Duncan pickup in the bridge...

I understand it's not to everybody's tastes but I've been modding my old Charvette. I was inspired by an ipod...
Hello! I'm trying to find out specifically what current humbuckers on the market are either exactly like or most similar to the F3 and F2 humbuckers Ibanez used in the early 90's. I plan to have a custom guitar built using new pups and want to get as close to the way those hums sounded as...

how would you guys rate existing USA custom/highend guitar shops?

It seems strange that such a big company does not have a genuine custom shop.
Do you think there would be interest in a web based custom shop system like jacksons? (http://www.jacksonguitars.com/resources/custshopquote/)
It seems like a great way to get that custom JEM/UV/RG simply picking...

I was wondering if I could get a custom Ibanez?
Preferably an RG with the same specs and binding around the whole guitar and reverse headstock.
I saw this on the fear factory site recently and got some info for it from the FF forums, sounds nice :
It's apparently going to be available in the following colors :
At the time of this writing Ibanez has sold 45,160 Jem guitars since the initial release of this ground-breaking instrument in 1987.
