Post Where to buy Ibanez bodies?
I'm thinking of reviving my old RG but I realized I want a fixed bridge now. I really love the neck of that thing and I wish I could play it again. So my questions are:

1. Where can I get an RG body? Preferrably a S-H-H body or H-H. Basswood or ash please.
2. Can I get one with my own custom color?
3. Can I find veneer quilted maple or flamed maple anywhere? Tried eBay but can't find any. The sticker ones, I wanna put it on the body if ever.

That's all! I'm going to the US this April/May so I'm doing my research early.

perle guitars (think thats right) do all kinds of replacement bodies. I find Jemsite is a good resource to find out that kinda thing, guys there are constantly building crazy looking customs.

You can always make your own or convert the one you have to hardtail :)

Too much work. I don't have the time. Would probably need a paint job which is a pain.

Tried eBay too but I mostly see ones with trem holes. :?

I checked that site out but it seems he had problems before. Also I don't like the paint job he offered. Kinda expensive too?


Is it weird that nobody's selling maple top veneers?? I figured people would like those.

Another option is you could cruise your local buy and sell websites for the RG321s and see if anyone sells one cheap. I got one for €50 once, was gonna make a project of it but decided to sell it at a profit after cleaning it up a bit.

Really difficult to do that in this country. Can't find parts anywhere. :? Also it'd be nice to get a custom body with a unique color that's not in the current Ibanez line up.
