zee i could possibly make you one, but it would of course only have the paint black on the back? green and the rust colour on the front. i probably build one next year, im living in sweden now, so just across rd from u.

That would be totally awesome. Identical like that in the picture... how much do you think it would cost? I would definitely be ready to buy it.

well it would depend on what you want, if it had the same pick ups and what wood you want? but not so much because its a pretty simple guitar, it would look as close as i could possibly get it, and without the stickers, black on the back? green and rust on the front... maybe at a guess like anywhere between 450 to 600 euros, but i wouldnt have a clue at this point. no more than 600 at any rate i dont think.
i need 1 more practice before i build anything for anyone else. ive only ever built one guitar, and the 1st one you make mistakes, the second one should be way better and the 3rd one should be perfect? im broke now so i have to wait to build my second guitar, the first one i did out of junk wood just so i could make a mistake and not cry, it takes about 100 hours for me to make one as its alot with hand when making the neck, last time i lost 2kgs just making the neck!!!! ill get in touch when im ready to do it and we discuss it more. could be a long wait thouh like 4 months?

kinda done a rough costing, body, neck, bridge, tuners, truss rod, pot switches x2, pick up selector switch, black venner for the headstock, (assuming body is swamp ash, i think dex uses basswood but swamp ash is almost the same)
comes to 200euro plus shipping and possible taxes. u still need frettwire, strings, pickups, wire etc, plus paint and polyeurothane, i would say that would make it 300 to 400 euro, plus say 70e for my time, because i've had to do it and invest in the expensive tools. it would still be a guess but 600 is realistic, unless they tax the fuck out of the imported goods. if u go for cheaper pick ups would be a bit less but i believe dex uses dimarzio. u could finish it yourself, paint and poly if you want, but that wont lower the costs, just might be fun?

You could finish it up from the very beginning to the final piece of work. So that I could just fancy and play it. :D

I'm really giving you free hands, just try to make it as realistic as possible. I'm really curious what you're able to do with it, and around 600e-700e costs sounds just fine. So I'm ready for this, just take your time, I can wait. Next year sounds good.

Shit, having Noodles' signature guitars along with this one at home would be sweet. :)

Wow, if you actually get that guitar that would be too cool.

I was thinking of re finishing my RG, I don't think I actually will, but If I did it would be so cool to refinish it in those colors. Unfortunately it has a pickguard so I'd have to just paint that so it blends in. I think I might :D

ok then, well i will have to practice a neck with some junk wood, the body is easy (now that i have practiced it and learnt what not to do!) but my last neck was pretty good, except it was a set in neck, so i just have to practice a bolt on one like dexter uses. i will probably make one out of junk wood again just to get it 'down' so if i make one for someone else it is the best quality around. there is a possibility i may have to get a plan drawn up, i forgot about that, and its too hard for me to draw, so i have to get a friend to do it, he charges 50usd, otherwise i would have to trace an RG and it might not turn out so good, still sweet? i am in nz till january, so this could be ready for the spring?? so just start sticking some money away. about the dude wanting to paint, i wouldnt do it on a guitar with a pick guard may look shit and paint will peel.
one cool thing about me making a guitar, the poly finish is like 20 coats, so it just looks awesome!

Checked...

I'm really looking forward too see this guitar. It should be pretty fucking sweet, huh? Just use all your ability of making guitars, I'm giving you 100% support! No special demands - only as realistic as it can be. And best quality/realistic parts, I'll pay them.

My jos is to find somewhat identical stickes, I guess. :p

Hehe... I just got a contract at my job to continue. :) It's a shift work, so I work at nights too (22.00-06.00) which gives extras.

My goal is to have the two Noodles' signature guitars, and now this Dexter-a-like, Alexi Laiho sig and my first guitar ever. Four guitars. That's where I'm now aiming for. :)

If anyone finds a place where I can buy stickers like on the guitar, let me know. This'll be one hell of an interesting project how it will turn out... right weezly?

yeah i hope it will be mint!
but i bid too much on ebay for some pickups, im hoping to be outbid!! because i found someone else with 2 of the 3 pickups i need, and the usa dollar is week against the sek so hope to get a good price! so someone out bid me.
but i mean even so i still saved 35euros on a new pair even if i win the action..
