This is my custom 8 string I'm building, it's solid laminate 5 ply or 10 ply whichever way you like to describe it! It was built by ZJ at area 51 customs (managed to bag it for cheap). It's solid mahogany, maple, wenge, padauk and walnut it's unfinished right now thinking of using tru-oil for an oil finish to pop the grain.
It's not an RG2228 neck it's an RG8 neck which fitted perfectly and I actually prefer the neck like this.
I saw that going on the site and was REALLY tempted to grab it and do a 2228 project build. Should look baller when it's done!
