you could try guitarfetish.com

they dont have RG kits, but they do offer RG bodies and necks, which are routed for the double locking trems they sell

There is a place called diyguitarshop.co.uk over here, but they don't do RG bodies.

So you want to build an RG how you want, from parts yes?

byoguitar.com also has some pretty decent kits. I think they have an RG too, but I'm not positive.

this is basically what i want to achieve but ill block the trem.

so i was thinking, id get this http://store.guitarfetish.com/rstrerohhcob2.html but can anybody tell me about the quality? surely it cant be that good at such a cheap price?

then id buy all the gear id need for it

but i have thought of an alternative. do you guys think it would be a better/cheaper option to just buy an mtm2 (http://www.imagebam.com/image/c3432654754664) and get a professional to refinish it white?

any advice is appreciated before i drop money into this

cheers

You should buy that body and do everything yourself. Obviously its up to you, but it's a fun experience, and you can make everything exactly how you want it.

You can probably get an RG body on ebay that has been dinged or chipped etc, repair it, paint it or have someone do it for you (though I doubt you will want a "Pro" to do it, once you find out what it costs.

As for the rest of the hardware, you could do far worse than look on WD Music and then let me know what you want...see my sig

On second thought, listen to the guy above me. That RG shaped body you linked to had horrible routing, atleast the used ones on ebay would have good routing and some even come with the back plates.

thanks man but i dont really like the jem monkey grip.

i had a look on ebay before and almost all of the results for "rg body" came up with jem bodies. i think i saw one H-H config rg body but it was going for about £165, i didnt think it would be so hard to find a H-H rg body

thanks for the heads up though dude

Cheers

That GFS body is fine for the cash. If you can find a proper RG body, that'd be better, but the other one is good too.
