Or get a Guitarfetish Kit.

I don't know about the Dragonfire EMGs though. I am going to order some in the next couple of months for an Explorer build.

From what I hear an Xaviere is good on its own if you're looking for a cheap guitar and a GFS kit is more worthwhile if you're going to do much to it because the neck quality is similar, but the kit is cheaper.

The gfs kits are better than the dragonfire kits? Why are the dragonfire v almost 70 bucks more than the gfs ones?

GFS takes this one. I've ordered parts, pickups and a Xaviere from them...just have a little look see:

what about something like the xv-jt60? its 170, and its made with alder (not poplar) so for about 40 dollars more, you get a cooler shape, and better wood
or is it still more worthwhile to geta kit since im gonna be uber modding?

Well, the cost of the kits is mostly in the body and neck. The pickups, bridge, tuners, and electronics tend to be utter shit in guitar kits to keep the cost down.

So if you were intending on replacing the bridge, tuners, pickups, and electronics anyway, yeah go for the kit.

I don't know which is better, but I'm in the same boat as you. I'm thinking about buying a Jackson style neck for a custom body build that I'm going to do. This is the neck...



It looks to be a good neck, but looks can be deceiving. If you find out anything on Dragonfire, I would like to know.
