READ!

~Rules
1.) Your post must be about your own customizing project.

2.) Your post must contain at least one picture of your guitar after you customized it.

3.) No Spam, as much as people love congratulating people on their hard work, there is no need to fill up the forum with posts containing ?good job? and ?wow dude, you rock?, If you have something to tell or ask them, use the PM system.


PF: ^^ Read, many times if nessecary. A non-topic posts WILL BE DELETED AND USERS WARNED! It's getting beyond a joke and is really one of the most annoying things about GB&C. If you want to ask questions use the PM system, we don't want to look through pages of "thats a cool guitar" when trying too look at guitars.

Rawr!

It's basically a replica of a Tom Delonge Strat, a sweet guitar which is was designed and played by Tom for several years, until Gibson handed him a stack of money to change allegence. This saw the birth of the Gibson TD-355 (which has the similar one pickup/one volume configuration), and the halt in production of the TD strats.

I'm a fan of Blink 182 and The Offspring as well as other punk/pop-punk bands and heavier rock. I'm a Satch/Vai fanatic as well. I wanted to make a TD as it has a great heavy sound, and the simple setup meant it was easier for me to wire than something with a 5 way selector. As I'm a wiring n00b, I wanted to start with something easy.

Features:
*Rosewood fretboard.
*White Seymour Duncan Invader pickup.
*One pickup/One Volume setup, the perfect guitar to just plug and play.
*10-46 D'addarios.
*Custom made pearloid pickguard
*Umm *scratches forhead whist thinking of other features to type about*, did I mention it's white?
*Custom AMBER LED under pickguard which basically makes the edges of the invader glow, like a halo!!!

As for sound, the invader obviously suits Any kind of rock to a tee. I was kinda concerned about some people saying that this pickup was too 'hot' for it's own good, but I'm suprised (and glad) that this guitar is wayyyyyyyyy more versatile than I expected it to be. Most people I asked said the clean sounds would probably be rubbish, however I beg to differ. Don't be fooled, this is one versatile axe, despite it's simple setup.

Well there it is. It's my first ever project guitar. It took me about a month to complete, working on and off on it. The easiest part was probably assembling it. The hardest part, well, not the 'hardest' but the most time consuming was probably painting. As far as a first guitar goes I'm pretty pleased with myself.

I'd have some soundclips for you, however last time I tried soundclips with my RG, they sounded rubbish (not the guitars fault, I just have a horrible recording setup ).

Hope you like it.

Peace out

EDIT: pay no attention to the fact there is no volume knob present! i have a chrome one now, but no camera.






and the halo of light around the pickup

For the Nut I just turn the screws underneither (they're not in the way of the neck) and it raises and lowers the nut.

I have to Ibanez Rg's (170 and 270). I was bored today so i taped them off kinda like EVH but i'm to lazy to paint them.The tape still looks cool on them i guess. I also took out two of hte pickups on the black and red one to give it a "killswitch" since I never used the neck pickups anyway. I also lowered the action on the black one and put a wood block in teh back of it so that it would stay in tune better.

I also sanded the neck and part of the headstock on the black guitar so that i'd play smoother.

Ibanez Rg 170 "Before"


Ibanez 270 "Before"


Both Guitars "After"

Strat pup in an Oscar Schmidt



The pickguard was falling off so I ducktaped it on, im amazingly poor. It works though. Also changed the tuners.



The crappy pickup slotting job, this was the first thing I ever did to any guitar. It works though and you can adjust the hight and stuff. I sawed a basic slot for it with a little hacksaw type thing then sanded the rest till it fit. the first time I did it I lined the pickup right under the strings, it was way too strong of a signal to sound like an acoustic. So I offset it a little bit.

You can see to the right of the pickup where I screwed up.

i started with a squier affinity tele. $160US. stripped off the ugly yellow paint and found the alder wood grain looked sweet.

so i stained it a natural color and added about 8 coats of finish laquer.

i swapped out the stock pups for Duncan Vintage rails neck, and hot rails for tele bridge.

added a set of schaller strap locks for fun.

a careful setup completed the job. i couldnt be happier with it.

before and after pics....

probably one of the cheapest and not so awesome mods in this thread. i wanted a straplock system but im too cheap to buy on so i went to home depot and got two metal washers for a grand total of $0.35. i then unscrewed the strap buttons and put the washer and the strap on the button. after that i put the screw back through the strapbutton and screwed it back in. took me an intire 7 minutes to do.

this is my creation Redgie. He's a shredasoarus. He has a diet of crappy guitar players. Redgies body was origanly a synsonic I bought off ebay for 15$ and covered with orange fur from joanne fabrics. I changed the neck (sorry I cant give you a brand, I dont know), and added locking post tuners (again, sorry no brand). I replaced the driver in the built in amp (although the tone still sounds like a 10w left to rott in the rain), and painted the screen to look like an eyeball. The teeth are made of aluminum. Here comes my favorite feature: REDGIE BREATHES FIRE. The tonge you see hanging out of redgies mouth can be inflated with butane like a balloon. Butane release is controlled via whammy bar and shoots flames out the head stock. First picture is of redgie, second is the flam thrower in action.
