^ who cares, anyway.. i totally re built this old crappy ibanez i had around and it cost me a pretty penny. i got a deal on the new floyd rose and got two new demarzio pickups and did all the paint and everything myself. it ended up costing me around around $400 but like i said, i did all the paint and myself i just had sam ash put in the pickups so i didnt fukc them up. well worth it though, those demarzio pickups sounds incredible

I already have a good guitar so i don't want to go and buy another one, and i'd like to get into modding. the only other option i would consider is building a guitar from scratch, iv been doing wookwork in school for 6 years so it's an option!
