Custom Ibanez Inspired Guitars

Ideas and Discussion

It's been a bit over 13 years since I bought the CNC equipment and started selling Ibanez JEM and Ibanez RG style replacement bodies. I figured I'd start a blog type of chat area where I can let everyone now what is going on with the shop. I'll write a few pages here and there on some of the problems and solutions that have come up. I'm trying to write on things people ask in and emails. I think it is pretty neat that my site shows up for general searches like Swirl Guitars.
