-Ibanez S470 in flat dark grey with flat gunmetal hardware, DiMarzio Evolutions and a Cruiser middle , ZR trem
-Sam Totman Iceman with EMG 81 and 85 pu's, ZR trem
Chain:

I'm pretty sure we've had this thread four or five times before...

Anyway, first up would be:

Gibson Custom Shop Les Paul

- Weight-relieved mahogany back.
- AAA carved flame maple top.
- Mahogany set neck.
- '59 neck profile.
- Ebony fretboard.
- 22 medium frets.
- No fret inlays or side dot markers.
- Headstock only marked with chrome brand inlay.
- Bone nut.
- Tune-o-matic and stopbar bridge.
- Set up for .10-.46 strings, medium-high action.
- White binding on neck, headstock and body.
- Matte/satin polyurethane finish on body back/sides, neck and back/sides of headstock.
- Extra thin high-gloss nitrocellulose lacquer on body top/front and top/front of headstock.
- Tri-burst finish, Trans Pink/Trans Purple/Solid dark indigo.
- Top/front of headstock finished in solid dark indigo colour to match outer edge of body top/front.
- White pickguard, mounting rings, input jack mount and pickup selector mount.
- Chrome hardware, chrome 'speed' style knobs.
- Two volume, two tone controls.
- 0-25dB active mid boost switch.
- White 3-way pickup selector switch.
- Uncovered BurstBucker #2 neck pickup, wired in reverse polarity.
- Uncovered BurstBucker #3 bridge pickup.

Which would look something like this:



Then for guitars #2 and #3, I'd have the same, but with the following changes:


Gibson Custom Shop Les Paul #2 changes:

This would be the 'metal' version.
- No weight-relieving.
- 60's neck profile (rather than '59 profile as above). A more preferable (but possibly impossible) alternative would be Kramer's super-Strat 25.5" neck profile, altered for 24.75" scale.
- Trans purple/solid black burst finish, polyurethane finish all over (rather than polyurethane for back and nitrocellulose for the front as above).
- Uncovered Seymour Duncan Pearly Gates in the neck.
- Uncovered BurstBucker #3 in the bridge, slightly overwound even more than usual.


Gibson Custom Shop Les Paul #3 changes:

This would be the 'blues' version.
- Trans purple/solid blue burst finish, nitrocellulose finish all over (rather than a mixed finish as the original).
- '58 (standard '50s) neck profile.
- Uncovered Seymour Duncan Alnico II Pro in the bridge (neck pickup kept the same).


And yup, that'd be me about done.

And of course, my Ibanez S470 with all it's future mods:
New maple fretboard'd neck with Vai style pyramid inlays, desert Yellow paintjob with DiMarzio tone zone in the bridge (black/pink) blue velvet in the middle (pink) and Evo neck in the neck (pink/black).
#16
i think i'd have a prs like the one brad delson uses (not sure which model...), a gibson explorer '58 (the originals... so good...), and jared leto's explorer-like guitar, which is dead gorgeous...
