So, I have this guitar I got for free, and after I figure out what wood it's made of, if it's made of good wood I plan to make it awesome.



I want my guitar to be capable of some serious metal, but don't really know what to get. I know I need at least a new bridge, pickups and tuning keys, and this is what I've got lined up so far. I do not want a locking trem since I plan on selling my other 2 guitars to fund this. I've picked out what I could on my own, if anyone could please look at the parts and comment I would be extremely grateful.

I might be wrong, but it's already modded, did you even give it a chance at how it is? Fool around with it for awhile, you might already like it as is.

The parts on it are rusty, and from what I've read about the guitar, the pickups it comes with aren't very good quality. I'd prefer a fixed bridge for easier tuning, and buying and installing the parts would be cheaper than buying a whole new guitar. Also, I'd like to give this a shot, it seems like some fun, installing everything.
