    Well..
    No matter how perfect the specs can sound to me, there's always a few thoughts about getting the parts, right..
    I am one of those guys that love the RG shape, but also the bridge that was designed for John Petrucci and his Music Man guitars..
    How does trademarking and general rights work on the specific parts for all the different guitars.. signaturs or not..
    That is one thing I have never really thought about before starting drawing my guitar.
    I know I've seen other custom guitars with the JP bridge.. and f.ex. non-Ibanez guitars with the EDGE bridges...
    How does that work? Where do I get the parts?

    It would be good to know, before I send the specs.. :scratch:

    Any official dealer of said brand can order parts, whatever you want to use these for.

    Yeah, a dealer could probably order the bridge as a "replacement" part, or you could order one that's custom milled for you. I'm not sure which one would be more expensive, though haha.

    Hmm.. I would never guess.
    Well.. I'll give it a shot.
