Item for sale: RG5XX with custom Mahogany/Maple body

Description & Condition: Very good condition, the neck, Edge, and hardware is from a 570, the pickups are a DiMarzio Steve's Special in the bridge and a Humbucker from Hell in the neck. No 5-way switch or tone control, the volume pot is a push pull pickup selector. The body is gorgeous, the clear coat isn't as good, I did it by hand and it didn't come out as good as I would have liked, but it is playable as is. The DiMarzio cliplock strap is also included and it will come in a nice Ibanez molded case.

The 2 problems with it, other than the amatuer-ish clear coat, are there is a small hairline crack in the trem cavity, it is from the stud holes not being deep enough when I pressed the studs in, I pulled the stud, deepened the hole, and put them back, I also shot Hot Stuff super glue in the crack. The other thing is that the holes for the trem spring claw aren't in exactly the right spot, but it works fine. You can see it in the back picture. They were stupid mistakes on my part, but I don't have the time to redo the body right now.

This guitar plays and sounds great! The problems sound worse than they are and have no effect on tone or playability. The finish isn't as bad as it sounds either, but it could be better. It is polished out, but has swirl marks, no one will notice from a couple of feet away.

Asking Price: $400 (no trades) shipped in the lower 48 US, others can contact me.

My Location: Erie, CO

Terms of Sale/Purchase: The guitar plays great now, that's how you will get it.

Last chance before this goes to da 'bay, $365 (or you can make an offer) shipped in the lower 48. Paypal preferred. This is a seriously nice guitar, I'm really tough on the problems, it sounds alot worse than it is.

A couple of days, then it goes...

An e-bay seller, noahjaven, or something like that, it is very well made. I can't find any of his stuff now, he has sold quite a few though. The maple is 1/2" - 5/8" thick, the entire body is 1-3/4", standard size.
