So like i am very interested in buying a Demmelition King V PDX2 from Long and Mcquade near where i live for $880 (Including tax). It comes with Rosewood fretboard, Basswood body, EMG-HZ (passive) Pick ups and a Floyd Rose Special Tremolo Bridge (I think). I'm 16yrs old with no job so yeah thats alot of F-king yardwork lol to make that cash but the thing is that when i buy the guitar i was gonna swap the EMG-HZ'S out for a EMG81 and a EMG85 and there between $119 - $150 each. So We'll say like around $300 for the EMG'S.
But now what i've been reading is that the Floyd Rose Special isn't as good as the other Floyd Roses because it's made out of cheaper Metal and shit likes to crack and break on them over time and a more expensive qaulity Floyd rose is like $250 - $300. Oh and the reason i'm getting that guitar is cause it comes with a Floyd Rose and its a Jackson V.So now the big question is .... Is it really worth all the work to pay $880 for a Demmelition PDX2 and then another like $500 - $600 just to replace all the shit in it?

I'm guessing you don't live in the states? These are brand new and neither one has the HZs installed. Can you look anywhere for used?
EDIT: Canada. Ok.
Also, try $220 for the Emgs http://www.long-mcquade.com/9850/Guitars/Parts/EMG/Zakk_Wylde_Pickup_Set.htm
