    I have someone in mind for the swirl, thanks though, PM me a link to his swirls, I am very sure this is not the last guitar I will be building.

    ^:agreed:, I couldn't agree more... This will hands down not only be the most epic custom-build ever, but also the most epic Ibanez ever, along with GOTM. It'd be really hard to try and top what this thing is gonna be like once it's done...

    Damn it, this makes me want another Ibanez now... :wallbash::lol:

    LOL. No it was when you said "Oh, let's just do the standard pyramids", after I already sent you the board and done all that work. My friend, that was when I was ready to kill you :lol:

    sick project, i like where you are going with it!!!
    i do have a question though, i assume you have made the bridge your self.
    what material did you use for the bridge plate? the saddles i guess you bought and the block is out of messing.

    actually we spliced together 2 original floyd roses, the block was made from scratch..... I looked at fabricating the base plate but it wasn't worth it.
