ok so heres the story, i just go this old Ibanez RG 170 from one of my friends really cheap. the paintjob is shot anfd it is COVERED in stickers. so i am repainting it. Heres what I want the final product to be.

Body:
EVH paintjob, black with dark red lines.

Bridge:
dont know yet, right now it is a fender strat style bridge but im thinking about filling in the tremolo cavity and routing it for a tune-o-matic or even a string through...help please in this part.

Pickups:
either want Active EMG 81/85..zakk wylde setup or some duncans. right now there is a middle sc pickup in the guitar. i am going to rout deeper if i have to but that is where i will put the battery(if i use emgs)... or i will put the battery somewhere else and put an sc there.

Controls vol,tone, 5 way.same.

Neck and headstock:
same, all maple with black headstock.

here is a pic of what im going for.


heres the guitar now....comments please!

Other than the jackson head, looks nice xD

But yeah, ditch the stickers. Only the purest of superfaggots put stickers on guitars.

Great list Rutch. On re-reading this one I'd have to say Solid State means not liquid or gas.

I figured it out.

Alright, it sounds good except....the evh paint job is gonna be a LOT of cash...you're better off just getting a simple design...and if you get the emg's....you need somewhere to put the battery.
Gear:
1980 Gibson SG Standard Cherry Red
Ibanez TM-71 Talman Artcore Semi-Hollow
2003 Tom Delonge Fender Strat Seafoam Green
Traynor YCV40

EVH is SO LAME AND OVERUSED! Surely you can be a little more original than that?

Apart from that I like the idea. Why don't you just fill the middle pickup route and make it H-H?

I'm interested in seeing how you would fill the trem cavity, I'd like to do that on my new project if it was easy enough.

Replace the nut with a graphite one. Graphite > plastic.

And here's how to change the 3-way Gibson switch to a 3-way Fender style one.
