How does one go about ordering or having a Custom guitar made? I'd like to go Ibanez Xiphos, just don't want the floyd rose. Would i have to contact Íbanez?. I couldn't find any link to a Custom shop or anything of that nature on their site.

You can block out the tremolo and get a hardtail like that.

You would have to contact them. A custom job would be a little expensive but they probably will give it cheap if you dont have any other requirements.

Other option is that you could get the jackson warrior. Its pretty much the exact same thing. The JS is a string-through.

Or you could get the xiphos and fill in the routing. Theres a tutorial on projectguitar.com

Put a lot of springs in the back to stiffen the tremolo and put blocks of wood in the cavity to keep it from recessing.

Ibanez's custom shop isn't open for the public. Only endorsees are able to use it.

Go to Ran Guitars. They'll be a lot better and less expensive.

Like DagMX said. There's also something called a Tremol-no, which is plaved on the springs in the back of the body to make it stabil like a hardtail. I've never tried it, but I've only heard good things about it.
