let's say that you are given a guitar with one purpose: to mod the crap out of it until it is perfect for you. What would you do?

Your base options are:
Fender Standard Strat (MIA)
Gibson Les Paul (standard)
Schecter C-1 classic
Ibanez RG1570
ESP Eclipse II

for me it'd be the fender strat with the following pickups: p-90 in the bridge, cool rails in the middle and am eric johnson single coil in the neck
it'd also have a floyd rose, maple neck/fingerboard, nitrocellulose paint(3-color sunburst) and roland synth access.
#2
gibson with, fuzz factory probe built in, and some thing to control my whammy pedal with on it ( like matt belammys). also a roland synth pickup but im not sure what other pickup(s) i would use. i would love a cracked mirror finnish. rosewood neck with a rose patern going down the fingerboard under the frets

Already modding an Epiphone Les Paul so I'd go with a Strat (Even though I hate Strats, the American ones are decent). Custom paint job (Nitrocellulose Dark cherry red), 3 Single coils, probably Fender Lace Sencors, Official Floyd Rose Tremollo, Grover locking tuners, Since the necks a bolt on, route the neck joint a bit and put a 24 fret neck in there (set in), Route it so I can have independant volume and tone controls for each pickup, then throw some 500K pots in, probably a new switch and a new gold plated jack and I'm done lol.
Current Rig:
Gibson Firebird Studio
Limited Edition Schecter 35th Anniversary C-1
Schecter Jeff Loomis Signature 7 FR
Ashdown Fallen Angel
Custom 7 Firebird from Ignition Custom Guitars (check them out)
ESP Phoenix

EMG 85s for pickups
Kahler Pro Trem
