Hi everyone -
So I have been gassing for a new guitar in transparent blue that i overlooked my present guitar. I need some advice/help on this. My present guitar is shown below:
I would like to have a body in transparent blue, similar to the ibanez rg320fm in lavender blue or the ibanez rg3120tw. Would like direct mounted HxH, 3-way switch, and volume knob located where the tone knob is usually located (nothing where the volume knob would be normally).
Now - i figure i can do the following:
1 - pick up a rg body and swap. BUT my rg550 is pre-aanj so pretty much every guitar body out there is aanj and i would need to modify my present neck.
2 - look for a pre-aanj body: BUT very hard to find and i believe nothing in tran blue.
3 - Can i modify my existing rg550 body for this? I think not b/c of the routing for the rg550 (swimming pool) but i could be wrong.
4 - Get a new body made with the specs listed above. It would have to be able to accept a pre-aanj neck. Question, is it a simple swap procedure (literally remove and replace in new body)? Would i need to send in my neck to whoever would be making the body?
Please advise as the GAS is killing me,,,,,,,LOL
Thanks in advance
