Here's a project I started a long time ago:

Flame koa on mahogany
White korina / Brazilian Rosewood neck
Rio Grande Crunchbox & Punchbox pickups
Stew Mac Megaswitch to replicate PRS rotary switch style selections on a 5 position switch.

that is one of the best VW's I have ever seen!!
Also, the punch/chrunchbox have been on my wishlist for so long now, sooner or later I will have a set!

Do they sound anything like the samples on the RG site?

I think they're just a touch more mellow than the RG website.  Then again, I'm running medium gain amps through a POD X3 Pro.  The PRS style parallel coil configs can get some nice glassy highs. I'm more of an Alex Lifeson guy than shredder and this guitar works great for that.
