    Great work, as always! Why do you put Ibanez logos on your own guitars?

    Hycote Flourescent Green. I'm in the UK but any car auto shop should have something like over your way.

    Its a total Ibanez style copy and not my own design and being an Ibanez fan boy I like to use it as a tribute.

    Fair enough. With your ton of RG/JEM builds, you couldn't hide your serious fanboydom. Is that even a real word?

    How did you do the inlay? It looks super clean, so normally I'd guess CNC, but I know you do everything by hand, so was it just a super steady router?
