You might want to try using some periods.


Ah, that was a dick move. But seriously man it sounds like a cool build. I'm guessing ur going for a metal guitar so i suggest a humbucker set of EMG 81 and an 85.
And for the maple neck, try some birdseye maple.
And if you want the ebony fretboard to be a true black color, you got to buy a stain.

There's a link.
Have fun and post some pics. I'm building a PRS similar to the same woods so once I post some pics up check it out and crit it maybe?

i would have said 81 and 89 in the neck....89 is coil splittable

That too. EMG is great for metal, so you can't really go wrong.

DiMarzio D-Activators are nice if you don't want to cut glass with your leads and if you think EMG's have too much compression (I personally do, but that's just me). They're awesome for metal, and you won't risk batteries dying as they're passive pickups.

Only humbuckers with 4 wires are (or 5 like some duncans) are splitable. Birds eye maple isnt too bright. My ibanez has a maple neck and it isn't too bright. And I can't imagine that birds eye maple sounds too different from standard unfigured maple.

24 9/16 scale length
24 3/4 frets


The frets need to be spaced according to the scale length. So whichever you plan to use, stick to it. But due to you sentence structure it reads that your guitar will have 24 3/4 frets

youd better hope noone reads that aloud, or else they might die of oxygen starvation, you really need periods. Sounds pretty good though
