Is there anything more to the custom in terms of hardware quality or anything? If it's nothing more than cosmetic, I'm really not interested in it. Thanks!!!

i think the custom is apparently supposed to have a little better pickups in it but considering if you bought either you would probably have to upgrade the pickups either way

ya its all just how they look. I just bought a custom 3 weeks ago and id have to say that the extra $100 to get the white with gold hardware was well worth it.

I was curious as there's a black one on ebay that ends in less than an hour and is at $255. I'd probably be better off saving $100 or so to get the Standard and using the extra $100 towards a better amp, right?

don't buy a used guitar. especilaly if your only saving 100 to 200 dollars save up and buying it new is a much better feeling than buying it used

So, you'd advise buying new at $600 than to get one that may have only been played for a few hours for $300 or so?

Dude, if it's half-off, and in good condition, then heck yeah go for it if. You can get sweet deals on ebay.



That's my point...you find a lot of people who get a guitar like I did a few years ago and you'll find people who will buy a "new" guitar with more demo time on it than I put on mine.
