I have this Jay Turser that I want to totaly redo. what I want to do is get a new neck (the frets on this thing are fcked) new pickups, and new paintjob. I have never done anything too advanced moding wise, all ive done is change the pickups in my sg. So if you guys could help out that would be amazing. Im thinking of a pirate theme, and I play mostly classic rock. I want to put in two single coil, and a single coil sized bucker at the bridge. any recomendations for a neck and pups would be great.


The guitar unmodded

id be hard pressed to find better pups than those for any price. also www.warmoth.com has some nice necks for you to check out. hope that helps and good luck with your mod.

Make it look like it's on a real flag, like have shadowing and maybe a bit of sea n the background. If you have an airbrush though...

u r a n00b.


Don't buy a Jay Turser crap thing, order one from rondomusic.com. Their SX guitars are actually pretty decent for the price.


And the blue is MUCH cooler than that retarded skull and crossbones...

here is an idea:instead of being a dick about it give me a hand. i know im a noob, and i know its not a good guitar, im just doing this for some experiance. i want to do a pirate themed guitar, and i know my first design is boring thats why i said so. So how about you give me an idea on how to make it better instead of flaming.

Shes all gutted.

Wait those last couple posts were absolutely pointless. HE ALREADY HAD THE GUITAR.

If your anything of an artist, you could also try and do a seascape with a pirate's silhouette on one side and that blue that's already on there be the sea.

For your template,
In my opinon i cant stand speed knobs on a strat, so maybe get some different knobs. As for the inlays, maybe have it say "PIRATES LIFE" or something like that. Get a black pick gaurd and put the jollyroger on the pickgaurd. Be creative. Maybe you dont want black. Maybe a candy red guitar with a white jollyroger. have no limits.

so ive revised the design a little, im thinking about using something like this: instead of just a plain skull and crossbones. and the main colour will either be blue or red, i have to leave for work soon so i dont have time to make up a sample, but tell me what you think
#15
i was also thinking on moding an used fender strat.

you could put crossbones and skulls and swords on the neck instead of the booring white dots. you could put holes on the side like canon holes. you should paint stripes and put a skull with two crossed guitars....

the image doesnt work.

Pink queen is not a ''****ing dick''. You are a noob. Buy a less - craptastic guitar to mod.

That guitar, will never sound any better.
#17
hahaha craptastic...yeah but thing is...this guitar is cheap, if i wanted a mexi fender...it would be about 550 canadian...and thats too much to spend on a guitar that i might totally **** up...and i dont know about any otehr fender knock-offs...but this one is only 200 brand new and i played it, and it didnt sound like **** even with stock pickups...and im going to make it really hardcore and make it sound good whether is wants too or not
