I recently bought a AXL Badwater I usually opt for the better brand and sounding guitars but I really like the way this one looked and decided to buy it and build it up! I play mostly country and alternative no metal. How would you guys go about building up this guitar to make it a mean sounding guitar I would like to keep it under $500 let me know what yall would change.
Which badwater model did you buy? What amp do you use?
you would be correct. it's pretty much terrible if you haven't tested out any other amp yourself...
Ah yeah you might want to invest in a new amp before you go modifying the guitar.
Ya I'm gonna get a Mesa boogie when I finish the guitar!
Fair enough anyway first port of call I would be looking at the nut and tuners and bridge to make sure that they are replaced with good hardware. And then I would concentrate on the sound but seeing as how you are getting a mesa boogie maybe you should wait for that first and then decide on which pickup you really want.
