If thats an OFR, amazing deal, but I doubt it... It would be a great project guitar.

Off topic, the Lo TRS you have is a direct retrofit with an OFR.

EDIT: Solid maple body? That's gonna sound pretty harsh.

You could have bought an OFR instead of that guitar, if you live in the US. www.warmoth.com has them for like $170 for chrome. But anyways, I would definitaly change the DimeBag pickups since it is pretty muddy, never really liked it.

Yes, it will sound very bright. But I guess if that's what you want, then it's a great deal.
