    Looks beautiful. Good decision & interesting solution for the pot-problem. :)

    in keeping with the natural look you should sand the headstock down to wood and score an ibanez logo to put back on there or even leave it blank, would look pretty killer

    I love that wood grain! So much more interesting than standard Ibanez black.

    I would go with a kill switch in the pot hole. Looks killer!

    Beautiful, I love my 7620 but basswood is so unlikely to look this good. Will have to find an RGA 121 to natural, the new 72's are set-neck...

    Nice work.

    Im having really hard time to get sound out of this thing! I need better soldering iron, new input jack and new volume pot! Im not good with electronics and the best way to make things work is just renew everything, i just cant find where the problem is and my 15w soldering iron is just making it so much harder because it barely can solder a wire together! I just want to play this thing, seems like it's too much to ask! :D
