About a year ago, I picked up this Ibanez for $40 and a paintball gun (a Minimag for anyone interested or if you know what it is) It was my second guitar, so it had to be the second one to be modified. I started with stripping it, but then I went crazy with a belt sander and spiced up the contours a bit. So far I have this:

I got my paint at an Auto parts store. They got some decent paints there for spray bombs.

Im planning on dropping some Seymour Duncans in this when I'm done. Not sure what I want though. Probably SH6's. Always open for suggestions.

If i had lowes, home depot or any GOOD thing that sells this kind of stuff i would be IN HEAVEN! Since i'm constantly working with wood but i always just stain the wood or leave it natural.

Dominican Republic is the sucks for some stuff =.= At least we got some BEAST paint remover lol, i just applied and left it overnight and the paint was magically gone XD.

Doc, i really don't know that much about pickups myself but i could help more if you would say what style of music your into :P

You may call me crazy (Because i am lol) but this are my choices :{

http://www.guitarcenter.com/Seymour-Duncan-STK-S2-Hot-Single-Coil-Guitar-Pickup-300395-i1127456.gc For middle pickup.

http://www.guitarcenter.com/Seymour-Duncan-SH-6-Distortion-Humbucker-Pickup-300042-i1127382.gc For bridge pup.

http://www.guitarcenter.com/Lace-Alumitone-Humbucker-Size-Pickup-305419-i1167967.gc For neck pup.

Don't ask why lol, i just know that would work with what you want :P

Does my name even has something to do with anything? 0.o This is not the first time someone insults me just for that lol... Because he's name is Dr. House he has to be an ass and make everyone go away from him and them force them to come back and take pain meds? I don't think so =.= I got this name because i made a band some long time ago named Linea 6. There's a very deep meaning to that name for me and i decided to translate it and use it as my username here... I didn't even knew about the brand Line 6 at the time so w/e.

Doc, i love you using the alumitone on yer axe. I still need to find something to substitute for primer =.= Do you have anything in mind that i could use? I heard shellac can work but i dunno bout' it.

Wow, nice. That sure looks like it feels good :3 Nice neck ^w^

I'm located in Dominican Republic which is.... UGH =.= If i had an automotive store here i would die go to heaven and come back to build guitars like a madman lol... I'm one of the only 3 guys in town that dares to mod a guitar like this... I've seen so many crumble apart and toss their parts away and i'm in a corner screaming "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!~~"

Now you should start getting how sucky it is lol...

Even so, Line6 makes some killer gear, ignoring the Spiders... People don't judge Fender by the Bullet and Frontman sets, so why rag on a brand for their entry-level line of amps?

I love the orange. Finally, a true orange shred guitar!
Nicely done.
