Hey guys,
A while ago I figured I wanted to make my own guitar just for kicks.
I have worked on it a little bit, but not enough to write home about, so here are the specs.

Body: "metal" spin off of an SG, think Bc Rich meets Gibson SG.
headstock: A Bc rich "widow" style headstock
Body wood: Maple
Neck wood: Maple (different type, not sure which kind it is exactly)
neck construction: bolt-on ( I actually prefer it to some neckthroughs )
Frets: 24
Tuners: locking "prem. qual." not sure of the brand.
Bridge: Floyd rose (not sure which kind)
pickups: two high output no name humbuckers (friend has the same ones actually sound quite good even for no name)
Electronics: Only one volume knob.

here are some pics from the headstock down, Ill update with pics everytime i work on it

Here is just the parts for now.

MORE PICS TO FOLLOW.

The body looks quite like the BC Rich Virgin, but a less crap IMO
I don't like BC Rich's, but I sort of like your body... Of the guitar, I mean!

Looks good so far, pics look a little squeezed in the first two though.

The final few pics of the Floyd rose, This is a different type instead of the strings being put into a spot and having the blocks tightened, these strings are fed through the back of it, so it goes through under the fine tuners, and out to the tuners, I think it is a neat idea because i can keep the ball ends on, and just need to string it through, the only tightening i need to do is at the nut.
here are some pics.

I'm not sure, it doesnt say anything on the side where it would normally say like, FLOYD ROSE or something.

Its very similar to my single locking Yamaha one. Much nicer to change strings etc., and holds tune perfectly well. I also like the slightly warlocked SG idea. All Maple might be a bit clangy so, in time some 'Nasty, snarling, bad-tempered b*st*rd of a pickup' (IronGear Hot Slag - as described on their website) might help a good bit.
I pick up my guitar and play

The floyd was a gift.

and yes, it seems like it would hold tune very well since it wouldnt be slipping from the blocks in the originals, i like the consept of how this one works VERY much.
the maple for the body is a different type of maple, feels somewhat different, and the pickups are surprisingly good, as i said before, my friend has the exact same ones, (we both bought them off ebay) and they sound pretty good for no-name.
but thanks for the suggestion man.

thanks for the replies guys, i'll have more pics up when i get a chance to work on it some more.
