Post My Custom Ibanez Epiphone
Well its official! :P

I am staring my Ibanez Epiphone project today! :shock: :o :D

I got the wood for the body, it’s Alder :roll:

Its 3 pieces that I will have to glue together... :roll:

I will be replicating my Epiphone Wilshire body, same as Ibanez did for Paul & Bruce...although Paul’s was an Olympic :oops: but the specs are the same! :wink:

I also hope to turn this black Epi Wilshire into the original Telesavalas...someday! 8)

I have posted a few pics: :)

Go for it man! :P

There has been a lot of talk from people about building this guitar, but I have never seen one completed yet...I will certainly give it my best shot! :roll:

By the by, who owns Paul’s Pink Ibanez Epiphone? :?
Not a fucking pic of it anywhere... :evil:

Wow this should be a cool project. Cant wait to see it finished, your destroyer/iceman i saw looks amazing, hope this is just as good! I always wanted to build a replica of bruces green epi, maybe i will now haha.

About pauls pink epi, i heard from somewhere that it was auctioned off on a japanese radio station a few years back, maybe im wrong but thats what i seem to remember for some reason lol Hope someone can back me up on this!

Cant wait for updates, keep up the good work :twisted:

Thanks for the complements! :)

How well I make it depends on how many pics I have, and how much detail I can capture... :roll:

As for the colour I don't know...I love them both! :hug:

I could always make two! :wink:

I wish we could get a hold of that guy that has the Pink Epi and get some details...but as we all know that will NEVER EVER happen... :( :cry: :cry: :cry:

Thanks for the positive comments guys! :P :wink:

All I got to go by is a few pictures and my instincts! 8)

Question:
Anyone here know what happened to Bruce's Green Ibanez Epi after it got stolen for his car??

I thought he smashed his green one at a concert.

Surg could provide you better pics from the epiphone, since he's got Paul's pink one (now sparkle red)
