    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.

    +3 for Elysian

    OFF TOPIC - I am currently in talks with Elysian for my first ever custom 7 string superstrat (based on the one in his avatar).

    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.

    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.

    HAHAHA!

    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.
