@cardinal He would probably kill me if I recommended anyone else to do a project like this. I think it stressed him out a lot and he's in the middle of another floyd 8-string project for me which he made me swear was the last one.
@ThePhilosopher I actually have 2 others but they weren't quite as successful as this white one. One of which you actually recommended the builder to me several years ago who also did your custom floyd body, but unfortunately he doesn't do this thing anymore. He custom made me the RGD body which I had painted twice but unfortunately the RGA8 neck is a bit twisted because I got it used (It's signed by Petrucci though...).Welcome to the modded Ibanez 8 string + floyd club; very nice. I want one of those reinforcement bars for mine as well.
