Basically, I might be getting some mahogany from my Great-Grandad and I've decided to start making a guitar, so I'll need pretty much everything other than the wood for the body.

What I would prefer:
EMG-81
Fast, comfortable neck
Tune-o-matic bridge
Grover tuners
Hell, if you have a soldering iron you don't use, let me know.

Of course, all of these aren't set in stone, so if you offer something different then I will probably consider it.

I'm got a set of Wilkinson Les Paul humbuckers, they're somewhere inbetween epi les paul stock, and gibson's best.


Let 'em go for 25. They come with 4 pots and an input jack

Hey man, thanks for the offer but I'm really after a much more aggressive high-gain pickup, but thanks anyway.

#5
Well, how much did you buy it for/how much have you used it?

its 21 fret, one piece maple with rosewood fretboard, really really smooth satin laquer, not all greasy and stickly like a gloss finish, its basicly brand new with pretty much zero fret wear, no major dings/scratches, this is a really seriously good neck, easilly better than anything your going to find on a fender mexico, hell it almost feels as good as my MIA telecaster neck

id get you some pics but im out of battrys, give me a day or two and il get back to you,

il do it for £35 shipped, for an extra fiver il throw in some really nice tuners and string trees

peace
#14
Alright, cool. It's my birthday on Feb 5th so I'll have some money by then.

4 les paul custom style black knobs
millions of black and white strat knobs
4 rickenbacker style tv knobs

a strat and a les paul style jack

urmm yea shoot if theres anything you want, i can do it for for not much
#20
Thanks, but with any luck I'll be getting a TOM from Pott.

Depending how things go, I'd probably be interested in the killswitch. How much would you want for it?

Alright, great thanks. And yeah, that's everything.

And I'm trying to make an Explorer/Jackson Kelly-style body out of mahogany, and basically just loading it up with everyone's spare bits and pieces and hoping to God that it will work, lol.

oh sweet, yea it will work if you just pay attention to what your doing, the strat neck is standerd 25.5 scale length for reference

the gear building and customising forum is great for help, they will make sure you get a killer guitar as the end product, if your using an EMG then that will make the electronics simple, just make sure you measure up the bridge properly and carefully make the neck pocket and the rest is easy!

good luck with it!

just slip me a pm when you want my gear
#24
Alright, thanks man. And yeah, I've been lurking in the GB&C forum for a while now, soaking up information like a sponge.

Hey man, you sell me those les paul custom knobs? They're the full ones, not the top hat ones right? If you got pics, i got cash =)
#28
Everything looks great man, was it £40 for everything?

Just give me until the 5th or 6th to get the money, and I believe that we are in business.
