I can't understand why anyone would pay for a guitar to be 'relic'ed'. It's beyond me and absolutely ridiculous in my eyes. For me the value of a guitar that shows its usage would be entirely...

If your valuation is correct then $400.

I don't know about you buddy, but to some people that's not exactly a flash in the pan.

If it's in good condition and it's a vintage instrument then just leave it alone. Seriously. Even if you do a 100% perfect job of modding it - you're going to cripple the value of the thing should...

Yeap - could well be the cable. I'd say that 99% of noise problems are not to do with the guitar itself. If you eliminate everything else then you can start to look at your guitar.

Actually my EC-1000FR has a Floyd Rose Special. I think the 4xx Series come with licensed Floyds at the moment.

LTD has really been cutting back on their quality in recent years.

Truth is I only bought an EC1000 because they don't do a 401 with a Floyd, and I wanted a like-for-like stage alternative to my Eclipse I CTM FR.

If they did a 401 with a Floyd I'd be all over it.
