Well gang, now thatI fiured out how to post pictures I wanted to get your houghts on the first of 3 projects I am working on

I was always into the guitar that Paul Gilbert used in the Racer X days that looked like the bastard child of an Ibanez Iceman & an Ibanez destroyer.

For years I had beed looking for this guitar & after researching the subject I found out that Ibanez never offered it as a production guitar. From what I understand, only Paul Gilbert & Bruce Boulette were the ony ones to ever own such a piece

Well, I wasn't about to let that stop me

I made some alterations to fit my tastes (Pauls had a Kahler trem & Mini Humbucker in the neck position), but let me know what you think

Speedy:

It's funny you say that...I have haed 3 people ask me to make them one & paint it hot pink!

The only problem is that I don't do paint, other than a "specialized" finish that a friend of mine & I are trying to finalize

I should probabaly team up with a painter on the forum to be able to ffer that finish to the folks that want it

pink is the only color i would make it. Paul would be proud. how much would you charge for an alder body of that shape routed for one hb in the bridge position and a stop tail piece?

send it in a pm, i don't know if it is a violation to solisit you on the forum. thanx dude.

ps it could be unfinished.
