Buy some very thin diamond plate, cut it out with a saw and then smooth out the edges. Drill holes along that guitar and then it's done. But remember to duct tape the upper side so your guitar is 100% dexter holland.

you know that even doing this crazy thing and "dressing" it like dexter's one won't make it sound like his guitar or look like him? :D
Btw it's a custom model, so you can't find it around, you could do like dexterwannabe said but I have doubts about the final result :)

That might work, only the front of the guitar is covered, but i think some anti slip metal or something will be just perfect. Thanks!

Didn't he have the Tazmanian Devil on one of his guitars back in the Americana days?

Yeah he did from the Smash era. I remember 'cause I use to wear Taz shirts when I was 13/14 when I got into the Offspring.

i was gonna say this.
that guitar was kinda camo looking,
and had that airplane sticker on it,
and a little "A" (possibly an unfinished anarchy symbol) carved into the lower right corner,
he used it at Woodstock.

Do you have big images of this plane on which posible to read the inscription? Do you know what this plane symbolizes? I mean, not for Dexter and Offspring, but in general.

That won't work... I remember hearing a long time ago on here that you have to be an official Ibanez endorser to get custom shop stuff.

its just an RG with a custom pickguard. just google "custom pickguards" I've done it before. you can get one custom cut and you won't risk injuring yourself on jagged metal edges left behind by the hack saw.

i believe you have to be an endorser like kev said. they don't hand out customs to just anybody.

i think he uses a couple different versions of the same guitar in one show. different tunings and what not.

EDIT: and to answer the thread starters question, i think it was more of a "ooh a sticker! I can stick it on my guitar! OOH Another sticker! OOH!..."etc :p

Note: The guitar with Taz was not decorated by Dexter, it was done so by Higgins (I read it in a interview).
