fritz, I was wondering about what you meant about have a "skull enlay on the same side as the sharkfin enlays" for the 12th fret of your Ran guitar specs. I'm not sure about what you meant about that so could you explain.

Stupid error, I forgot the sharkfins extend across the frets.

What I meant was, on the left.

I will let you know once mine gets here. If they are plastic then I am going to replace them with MOP, maybe even black MOP. It much cheaper to do it yourself and not that hard either.

alder is the usual choice of wood because its inexpensive, and pretty much is the default ot tone wood. Not to bright... not to warm.

meh

i guess tonal issues dont really matter if im putting an active emg in there, im thinking the preamp of the pickup will overpower any tones the wood has to provide, i dunno just a guess. I was really just looking for a guitar that wasnt neck heavy, i know my 2 epiphones are neck heavy and ive played the RR3 and thats pretty fuckin neck heavy, since im building the guitar neck-thru im just looking for one wood i could use thats not gonna make it neck heavy, + an ebony fret board.

The RR shape seems to even out the wieght. Mine has a alder body with a maple neck and thanks to the extended wing it even's out well.

That looks nice! Have you got a price on it? Mohogany wings with Maple neck-thru necks are my favorite. Even with active EMG it still shapes some of the tone. I also like mohogany neck and bodied guitars with EMG. This is only my opinion, so do decide for yourself. I love all guitars... I would even love a guitar made of plywood, as long as it was made with quality.

Yea

Metalmillitiant yes i did make it with that flash program and i made some others but i edited a bunch of them now.

And yea that guitar is gonna be around 1080 euros with a case, which is around 1200-1300 dollars, and its a mahagony body with ebony fretboard mahogany neck and headstock, and im trying to think whether i should gho with the esp headstock http://www.adueinteriors.com/custom.jpg or the jackson one http://www.adueinteriors.com/custom1.jpg, now that i look at it i think the jackson would be a better choice. Ill take that maple neck into consideration soulinsane. But i have one ?, if a neck-thru construction is like one piece of wood carved into a guitar, how can you choose differant headstock, neck, and body woods? yea the whole insperation for this guitar was alexi laiho from CoB and sinergy.

Well, I sent my deposit to them a couple days ago, so they should be starting work on mine next week. Hope I don't have the same nightmare Soulinsane is having.
