I have an Epi G-310 that I use as a backup guitar, and have been itching at hotting it up. I'm not sure if any of these ideas are any good but if someone could give me some feedback that would be great! This will be my first mod/build, besides removing pickup covers.

LIST OF IDEAS
1. It's mahogany, I'm not sure If I can do so, but I want to stain it a dark blue with a black burst. Like this: http://images.guitarsale.com/products/full/Gibson%20Custom/759229.jpg

(but with black burst)

2. Replace the neck with a custom one, perhaps a 24 fret shredder style? If not I'm happy with 22 but I would like a fast neck, I want something different to all my LP's. Also a Thinner neck should help it's tendency to neckdive.

3. EMG'S or Blackouts. Haven't decided.

4. Black nickel hardware.


Sound good?

New necks are hella expensive, you should be sure before you put one in.

fret-less is wrong on most of his other points though. And he's an idiot.

Gibson SG Standard
Ibanez S2170FB
Peavey JSX
Marshall 1960A
TEXAS A&M

Don't go with EMGs. (a) it just means more work. (b) why?
but, hell, that's my opinion....

I'd personally go with SD... but I'm kindof a Seymore Duncan fanatic.... so... don't make funna me. XD

and the shred neck on and SG would be pretty cool... but I doubt that the cutaway is deep enough to reach 24 comfortably...
And, I'm not extremely familiar with SG construction, but it would be a bitch to get the neck off.

It is a bolton. Sorry I should've mentioned it. There is no way I'd consider a new neck if I had a set one.

EDIT: Here is a pic of the neck joint.

has no one noticed he won't be able to get what he wants with the finish?

TS, the pic you posted showing what you want it to look like, is a stained quilt maple top, which the G-310 doesn't have, so that won't work, at least not how you're imagining it

as long as you know that you won't get the neckthrough bit, then yeah, that'd work.
The next problem is finding a 24 fret SG neck that's made for shred. You gonna have one made, or what?

It is possible to find 24 fret LP or SG necks isn't it?

I was even thinking of a new headstock shape, perhaps a carparison shape or jackson. I really want to push this guitar to be a metal shred machine, as I have more than enough range with my LP's and want to make this guitar dedicated to metal.

It might sound like a stupid question, but I don't care, because there's no such thing.
Can I fit an old Jackson or Ibanez (any brand just examples) to the body, providing that the scale is right?
