So I'm thinking of getting a custom warmoth Rhoads, classical style

How well do YOU think that would fit a 80's shredder/classic rock/frank zappa bands image ?

I think it's cool.

Ibanez RGR320 with Lo-Edge Pro bridge and scalloped fretboard

I also think it's cool.

Hell, if Steve Vai used to play for Zappa, anything goes guitar-wise.
Gear:
Ibanez S470 (EMG 81/S/85)
Sigma DMC-15E
Laney VH100R
Laney 4x12 Cab
Ibanez Weeping Demon
M-Audio ProKeys 88
Mbox 3 Pro
KRK RP6 G2's

Well, wouldn't a RR be considered more for "t3h br00talz" than a Jem, even with a swirl?

Vai didn't use a JEM when he toured with Zappa (I think he was largely a strat user) but my point is that Zappa (and Steve) is all about guitar-related crazyiness.

Go for it threadstarter!

look at the upper fret access on it :-S

I personally would get a RR5/RR1 but if you prefer the original go for it.

Yeah. people, like Lemoninfluence, are hypocrites and should have all their opinions invalidated from here on out.

Well, considering it's a warmoth model, it's gonna have the samme fret acces and shape as the new models (RR1, RR15, and so on).
I'm just thinking of getting the same hardware, neck (except with scallops), and paintjob.
And then my good ol' Caparison PH-R in the bridge, and Dimarzio Evo in the neck

they're both neck through but ok. I thought you meant that you were gonna do one exactly the same as the original.

Paintjob is awesome, if you're gonna get a trem you might as well get a FR IMO, scallops=cool once you get used to them and you can get whatever neck feels comfortable for you so go for it.

The same, as much as Warmoth allows me to it. Making the paintjob myself. And then Scallops of course

Yeah, except neck-thru of course.

I like schallers, and they're no worse than FR. + Schallers cost a tiny bit more, less tax in total when importing to Denmark.

I already have scallops on my Ibanez, and I love them so, yeah
