Post PGM Orange (can't wait on Ibanez to make them)
Well,

My original PGM orange that I was building last year took a fall on concrete before we could put it together. Rather than re finish it, I sent it off to Patrick Sims to redo the clear coat and put a nice finish on the body.

I am happy to say that its back and ready for assembly. Here are pictures of the body as it stands now. I will drill the volume knob hole and start assembly next week. Until then enjoy the close up shots.

Can you give specs on this guitar? I dont want to offend you but, what was the approximate cost? I ask only because it is outstanding and I would be interested in duplicating it.

The cost for me was just a bunch of hard work. I worked with Christopher Woods on the programming to make sure it was as close as possible. Then we made sure to get some material that would look as close as possible to the original (maple top with good figuring and wood grain). This was a labor of love for duplicating the original. I made the f-hole friskets, applied binding around the edge, and worked with Chris on getting the paint color as close as possible without having the original guitar. We had it all done and clear coated last year when it fell on the concrete floor and cracked the finish on one of the edges.

I had no time to re-finish it so I sent it off to Patrick Sims (excellent custom painter) and he made it beautiful again.

I made all of the friskits and decals in adobe illustrator and had them cut at a local sign shop. I also did a ton of research on the guitar to get the cavity routes, binding, top, hardware, and color as close as possible.

I am not sure if you remember the Dino RG I did but it was a similar amount of research and development.

Im sure you can start with PGM with a rosewood neck, then you would only have to match the paint and trim. Anyway you slice it, you have an excellent project there. Im sure you will but dont hesitate with the finished pics.

The guitar came out great. Sims did a good job on it.

If it was only that simple.

The only PGM's with rosewood board, dot inlays and non reversed headstocks are the 400 and the 401, if you wanted to be accurate you would have to add a flamed maple veneer to the headstock.. Both those guitars bodies are different wood than the orange PGM ,and don't have a maple top or binding. The 401 also has a trem and a middle singe coil.

Yes,

The only real way to do this is custom. By the way Patrick only did the clear coat and polish on this. He did a great job though. I am happy with the end result.
