    Damn, that is awesome! I have always loved the reverse Ibanez headstock.

    I hope to see more pics, I can't wait to see the binding.

    Welcome aboard Chris! I hope you had a good time in Finland when you were here with Nevermore.

    Welcome to the boards, Chris! Again, that thing is seriously hot, and if that was a picture you took with your phone camera, then I can't wait to see what it looks like taken with a proper camera once you get everything sorted out and whatnot.

    Thanks for the additional info, too. :metal:

    Thats awesome,

    Do the ghost pickups work well? I use the Roland stuff but there is no 7th string.

    Actually it's rosewood stained black. I prefer rosewood over ebony because ebony can chip easy and doesn't take to climate changes as well IMHO.

    IMHO a guitar without a locking nut seems to resonate a little better, and the strings seem more plyable, though the added weight of the locking nut does increase sustain a little.

    Chris.

    How's your killswitch set up? I've got a similar control on one of my guitars which switches to the bridge pickup on full volume, bypassing all the other controls, so if you just turn down the volume control you can toggle it back and forth to get that 'cut-off' effect. Is yours like that, or is it just an on/off switch, like Tom Morello uses?

    I suppose doing without the locking nut also gives you the option of doing behind-the-nut bends, if you're into those.

    Tom Morello uses a pickup selector 3 way with the neck volume rolled off. :yesway:

    Chris has a mini on off switch or thats what it looks like in the pic.

    I had a momentary pushbutton in my ESP for a while but im switching to the double volume instead of vol tone.

    His 'Arm the homeless' guitar has that setup...
    I'm pretty sure some of his wierd custom guitars actually have dedicated killswitches though.

    I know his Les Paul is that set up but his Soul Power Strat I have no clue what he has going on with that.

    I wired up a push/pull pot on my Schecter to be a kill switch when pulled up. I always bypass the volume and tone too since I never use them, but killswitches are handy for in between songs, or when you're practicing and people won't leave you the hell alone and keep trying to talk in to you :noplease:

    Morello's "Soul Power" guitar has a dedicated kill switch. The rest of the controls work like a regular Strat.

    I'm curious what Bare Knuckles are going into Chris' Ibanez.

    Nice. The Dimarzio Evolution & Air Norton is my pickup set of choice.

    If you're going to get rid of the DiMarzios, I'd glady take them off your hands. :yesway:

    If Ibanez made more production guitars like that the fan boy disease would be alot more rampant.

    Chris Thanks for finally joining our Group:shred: :yesway: ....it is always good to interact the the masters:idea: ....when I first seen this guitar photo I was under the impression it was paul Gilberts because Ibby made him two seven string customs and this guitar has the same looks "generally speaking" of his PGM guitar...but now that it is official and it is yours SHWEEEET!...tell all these guys why you have decided to have no Locking nut...I feel alot of guys do not understand "Why". Chris you need to get a solo cd out there so we can watch you tour on the G3 tour..that would be "killer"...Give J.P. a run for the seven string throne.............:agreed:

    G3 tour of excellence

    Beautiful guitar there Chris, and welcome to the board! How do you like the Evo/Air Norton combo? That's one of the combos I'm considering for my S7420FM, which is mahogany like your RGA.
