My first guitar mod. (Pics included)

A few weeks ago, I decided to completely modify:

My Silvertone Paul Stanley sig...



To this:



And now, to this:





I still have a bit of work to do on it, however, and I need suggestions in a few aspects, so any help is appreciated.

I don't know if I should do a logo on the headstock, or leave it as the wood.

As for Pickups, I'm installing a Fernandes mock-humbucker in neck position, but I dunno what to install in bridge, something hard-rock/metal sounding, and clear.

I'm definitely Installing a Killswitch, the on-on one, and I'm installing an original Floyd Rose...

It looks neat. I really like the paintjob.. it's kind of like.. some kid chewed on candy and smeared it on your guitar.

It's really individualistic.

Pretty sweet mod, looks rather.......I don't how to describe it. I've always wanted to repaint my guitar.......but I'm never sure on whether the cost is a lot or how long I have to wait for the clear to dry. Maybe a Seymour Duncan of some kind for the bridge pick-up.

Lol, actually it was a screwed up Swirl job, but I thought it turned out fantastic. My friends gave a lot of help in painting it I was thinking something along the lines of a Seymore Duncan too...

I have a quick question, and didn't wanna make a new thread.

Is it possible to install both a Fernandes Sustainer, (Single Coil in a Humbucker shape) and a Seymore Duncan Super distortion? Because that's the sound I would like...

Fernandes in Neck & SD in Bridge...

That's pretty damn awesome. I looked at it for about a minute before I could pull my gaze away. First thought-it's like a fish tank, or underwater in the tropics.

Nice work.

pretty cool but im not sure about the floyd rose. you need to do alot of routing and measuring to get it right. anywho good job on the paint, but you should have covered the neck pocket because i guarantee the neck wont fit. try sandin it.

good luck

Yeah, you can do that.
I'm doing this to my LP atm actually.
You may need to route out some space to fit the circuit board in or if your fitting it into the control cavity, you'll need mini-pots.
