Well I have been talking and planning and asking about this for almost a year now and Now that i have a job I can finally start. What I'm planning:
-Neck through SG (built to Gibson standards accept a thicker body, and neck through)
-Floyd Original, no knock-off crap (hence the thicker body than gibson makes)
-Quilted maple top with an Emerald stain, and high gloss finish
-NO PICKGUARD
-Possible JEM style grooves behind Floyd
Parts:

All Mahogany Neck and Body - $75
Floyd Original chrome - $175
Schaller Mini Locking Tuners - $54
Ebony 24 3/4" Pre-Slotted Fingerboard - $35.62
Quilted Maple veneer - $44.94
Hotrod Trussrod 18" - $15.89
GFS Crunchy Rails Bridge black on black - $32.95
GFS Vintage 59 Nickel - $37.95
Jumbo Fretwire - $5.22
Misc Pots, wire, etc. - ~$50
Green Pearl Trem cavity cover - $15.80

Anyone know where i can get:
-Peghead veneer Quilted maple
-Emerald Stain


If I am missing anything please let me know


EDIT
Somthing like this but with a more darker emerald green and much clear coat and polish

I'm picking up the wood this weekend, and ordering my router, hand plane, fretboard, and trussrod.
then in two weeks when i get paid again I will get the bridge, tuners, pickups.

Alright, I want pics of your top once you get it
For the headstock veneer, can't you just use extra from your body veneer?
Also, I think a black bridge may look better with black knobs and the ebony fretboard.

will do
If i have enough left over
and I'll have to take that into consideration.

I'd suggest doing a darker stain than that, maybe a forest green? Try popping the grain with some black stain too.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Neck-through SG. That's what I was wanting to do. but i'll never get around to a build for a long time.

I'll be watching this closely.

^Yes. Rootbeerjuice like.

Just a quick question, what is that type of figure called?


I was wondering the same thing. lol

but on a side note, any ideas on what headstock shape i should use? i like the basic idea of Gibsons, but i want somthing a little more unique instead of the "moustache" shape. Today I'm getting my final templates put together.
#15
Yeah thats high grade quilted maple.

Looks great. One thing I don't like about traditional SGs are the thin bodies.
