Maxim Posted March 21, 2007 Report Share Posted March 21, 2007 (edited) I'm gonna build my first guitar soon and plan on making most bad-ass guitar I've ever played. The Neck fret inlays? I was thinking of silver triangles but other ideas are welcomed to. (please note that I'm a complete novice and that I'm not sure if I can do this, any HELP would be nice ) -Wich wood for the neck? I like the tone and feel of maple but any help/suggestions would again be nice -Tuning knobs? Need some good looking black ones that aren't total shite, some names/pics would be useful -fret width? 25.5 I like alot -How many frets? 24 -What type of headstock? Normal ibanez RG one with a custom logo, nothing fancy -How will it be attached to the body? No idea how I'm supposed to get the neck attached to the body, tutorial would be helluva useful. The Body -Floyd rose or simple tune-o-matic? The shredder in me loves the idea of a floyd rose but I have absolutely no idea on how to build one and it could **** up everything I've been told, so again a tutorial with pics on how to do this would be nice. -Shape? I was thinking of an ibanez RG like this: http://www.projectguitar.com/tut/body.htm Electronics -Wich/how many pick-ups? I'm thinking of 2 (active)EMG 81's, I like the bad-ass sound and the nice clean they give. Finish -colour? this black http://www.ibanez.ru/gear_el_guitar/big/rg7321.jpg image is too large -Varnish? No idea wether I'm supposed to use some or not. --------------------- This is all I've got so far, I'm open for any type of suggestions or tips since I'm a beginner I'll need all the help I can get Edited March 22, 2007 by westhemann Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
