Ibanez replacement bodies / builders

Any good suggestions?

I know of Chris Woods and Jaden Rose, but looking around I couldn't see any "S" type bodies. And i have read of horror stories about Chris's super long wait times.

I have an RG7421XL neck I would like to have an "S" or an "RGA" body made for it ..... some thing nicer than basswood...(or at least some more character)

Elysian here is doing RGA bodies. Don't know about an S body though, I'm sure he could be persuaded if he has the measurements or a template there or something. PM him here.

i don't currently have an S body template, though i'm sure i could get one if need be(actually i know a guy locally with an S7420, i could use his). RG/RGA's have been my thing thus far, but an S would be pretty awesome to do, especially the a 24 fret neck. feel free to shoot me a pm if you want to know more

Yep, if/when I get a custom, I want an S-style body... but even thinner like the Stephan Forte Custom Lag II. Killer! I'm hoping Elysian can do that in a couple years.

For reference:




Later,
Jeff

I think if you did an S body that took a 24-fret RG neck, you'd probably have people beating a path to your (virtual) door.

This was the idea... as i have an extra RG7421XL neck that I would like to have a body made for.

I am making a final decision on woods/Hardware and control layouts and will be contacting you shortly.

oh, and Mike, i just remembered, the last PM you sent me, you used the "wallbash" smiley, and since the preview text of the PM doesen´t allow smileys, the word "wallbash" put between the smiley tags popped up.

i read it too quickly and read it as "ballwash" :P

Any more traction here for an S-body that accepts a 24-fret neck? Did Elysian get in touch with anyone or vice versa?

Regs,

Try contacting Sims Custom Shop, I think he goes by that name on this forum. He should be able to make an S body replacement. There were a few threads about it, but I'm not sure if anything was final yet.

Really? I don't see any mention of S-shaped bodies on their site, only RG, JEM and custom ones.

ET Guitars don't make S series shapes AFAIK unfortunately, plus they have a several month waiting time as of now IIRC too.

Yep, that's what I was seeing on their website. They might be good, but this thread is all about getting and S-series and they don't seem to offer that.
