can you put inlays into a neck that comes without them? and how much would a project like that cost?

and, what kinda pickups will give a raw crunching with distortion?

cool thanks, still wondering about the inlays, ive been looking and i cant find inlays anywhere to buy, would they have to be custom made?

emgs. just like burn the stars said.
active emgs are the best.but it could cost you a bit bcoz memba u have to get the pickups and the wiring.
yep u cn get inlays. i think it would be costly also.

EMG 81 in the bridge and 85 in the neck probably.

But, for hardcore and punk, maybe the Seymour Duncan SH-4 JB's are your best bet.

Don't listen to me on EMG related stuff, cause i've never tried them, but the Seymour Duncan is pretty high output, and versatile.

dont get an emg as suggested above. its more a metal pickup. an emg 89 or 60 might suit you though, but look to seymour duncan if you want punk and hardcore pickups

Best pickups are ENTIRELY dependent on your amp - EMGs won't do half of what they're supposed to through a solid state amp, and like the last guy said, they aren't really what you'd think of first for punk sounds.

^ agreed.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Exactly.

You'll need a good responsive tube amp for EMG's to couple perfectly.

As for custom inlays, it is possible, id take it to the GB&C forum.

There may be a tutorial on it there, I know there is for lots of customisation.
