[R] Custom Plot - means, SD & 5th-95th% (Plotmeans or Boxplot)?

Any help with this problem would be greatly appreciated:

I need to produce a custom plot i haven't come across in R. Basically, I want to show means, 1st standard deviation and 5th and 95th percentiles visually, using something resembling a boxplot. Is it possible to completely customize a boxplot so that it shows means as the bar (instead of, not as well as medians), standard deviations at the hinges (instead of IQR) and 5th & 95th percentiles at the brackets? The plotmeans function (ggplots) allows means to be plotted, but it seems only with confidence intervals, not 5th and 95th percentiles, and also without hinges (for standard deviations). I've searched the forums and various books and have drawn a blank on this. Thanks.
