Brought this back from the dead. It was originally a RT650 and was sanded down to bare wood, gouged, chipped binding, just an awful mess. Rattle can finish, my version of a distressed/aged black. Added a Mad Hatter SVST-5/3 but kept the original pickups. Plays and sounds great even if it isn't in perfect condition cosmetically.

Here is my first customized Ibanez, it was a beat up RG570CT. Working on the second :D Cheers
Looks superb. The binding adds class, my old PL has a similar factory job. Did you ebonize the fingerboard?

I also just finished my customized Ibanez... RG550LTD (year 1997):



It was a boring BK black model ;)
Yeah, BK models cry out for make-overs, don't they? The white pickups and sharkteeth make it really pop.

Although in the ibanez wiki says the original fretboards on these models are rosewood, it's a mistake, they are made of pau-ferro :) It's very cool, I took it off very carefully to use it in another project.
