You're going to see paint on the sandpaper. 2000 isn't going to go through the paint unless you did like one coat. If there is a few coats on there you're not going to go through it.

I also have a couple LTD's, they both have the Thin U neck which I think is what the MH has. You would be correct thinking it falls between the Ibanez and Hellraiser. There are Schecters with...

The 1570 is a better guitar than any of the premiums. I have a RGR1570 and it's my main guitar, I don't play anything else anymore. The Edge Pro is a great trem, one of the best you will ever find.

Your trem is more like a vintage style trem, it would need routing to make it fully floating.

It's the nature of the beast. You bend a string, the floyd is going to get pulled forward. You have to learn to compensate for this.

You might be able to find an unfinished slotted neck. Have no idea where though, but that's what I'd be looking for if you want to do inlays.

There are a million different picks with various types of grip on them. Sounds like you need to find a new type of pick. Seems like a pretty simple problem to solve.

A floating trem is not good for changing tunings. It's that simple. Put it in one tuning and keep it there. Or block your trem.

Couldn't you just get longer screws for the fine tuners and extend the range on your existing trem? Assuming they will fit without hitting anything.

It's not a Floyd Rose 1000 though, it's a FRT-O2000. I'm reading it's similar to the Floyd Special. For what ever that is worth.

The LTD is also significantly more expensive than the Jackson.
