Hey Guys Im finally starting my first guitar build after seeing my brother Bass-Man43 as u might know made my 7 String Rhoads V.

Now about my guitar I'm Basing the body of an Rg. Its going to have a flamed maple top and a mahogany back..still kinda iffy on the stain i want to do transparent black for the top and a dark brown stain for the mahogany. And for all of those who have been waiting. I'm ending your impatience and making and 8 in line reverse esp headstock. I'm going to be actually starting it next week but i probably wont get much done. Im going to be waiting for the maple till the 20th or so. I'm just anxious to get start on this.

Any input would be much appreciated

Sounds pretty sweet. What hardware are you planning on using? Any experience with guitar mods? If so... pics?

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.

I agree, 8 in line Ibanez would be sexy. It's what I would love to see on the RG2228.

reverse, so the string tension will be improved.

Im sorry guys not do disappointing you but i really leaning towards the esp reverse headstock its really bad ass and it mainly the look I'm going for.

As long as you go reverse 8 in-line, I'll salivate regardless of shape

It would be cool to see the whole thing come together in true Ibanez fashion, but what can we do, its your build
