There's a long list of mods for my Sumer, some of which are yet to be done as it's currently lacking electronics. But by the time it's finished:

TUSQ Nut
Stainless Steel Frets

I've bought from Denmark street before. It's definitely worth visiting for the sheer amount of guitar gear there. I can understand that some of the stuff there is expensive but some of the shops sell...

I'm pretty sure the RGX series won't accept aftermarket bridges without additional routing, as I used to have a first generation RGX myself. Contacting Yamaha for at least verification of a part...

I've recently acquired an AMT SS-11B which is a 3 (2.5) channel preamp with 2 12AX7s run at high voltage in a pedal format. It was only 200 so it can obviously be done. I'm actually amazed at how...

Oops! My bad. Schecter is still worth a look. They do a number of 7 strings. I'm sure one will fit those specs.

A little off-topic, but I thought the Blackstar pedals all ran off either 9V or 22V?

I don't think you'll find much from ibanez. If you stretch your budget a little or go used, you could look at the LTD EC-1000. Schecter would be well worth a look, although the neck would feel...

I think stuff like this is largely dependent on your playing style. To elaborate on what TheLiberation was saying, Tesseract tune their 7 strings in DADGAD, but tuned down whatever (Bb on their first...

I would advise considering guitars with a strat-style bridge as well. Limiting the search to non-basswood, non-rosewood boards is going to make searches a lot more difficult. If we look at Ibanez,...

I'm not entirely sure what you are saying, but I have a feeling the answer is no. What exactly is it you want to achieve? Power two pedals with one supply or something?

Out of interest, do you play with your thumb over the neck or resting on the back? If you play with your thumb over the top of the neck, you may prefer a guitar with a rounder neck (e.g. Schecter),...

I would generally agree with this, although I'm not sure how this translates into other currencies. That said, there are still going to be diamonds in the dust and gold plated turds to watch out for.

I think it's important to consider that the preamp stages of a 5150 or dual rectifier have the potential to be cased in a pedal format with identical circuits to the original. Also, there are plenty...

I think that's a bit misleading. Ibanez Prestiges are Asian imports, as are a number of other high end guitars.

HNGD!
