before, at school, ont computers... i showed my mate a picture of Alexi Laiho with the Squier Hello Kitty guitar (obviously photoshoped)

but we thought it'd be a good idea to actually get one, but make it not tooooo bad!

so sometime in the future im going to buy one, but i want a Floyd Rose to put on it & i need to get an idea of which pickup (bridge) i could use for it...

i was thinking something like Seymour Duncan, but i dont know much about Seymour Duncan....

i want an extremely heavy-as-hell pickup, so all ideas appreciated

heres the link if your not sure what the guitar really is....

Alexi = EMG
I'd say go with some toothpicks taped together and a coat hanger attached
you'd be surprised
If you do make it though
Black Floyd. Like devil horns painted on the cat. and tons and tons of videos of you gigging it

Lmao, I wanted to do this a while ago really bad. But I'm not about to drop $200 on a guitar that's worth $99...especially to hotrod.

wuz thinkin of doing this myself, purely cuz i think my guitarist would fall down dead instantly or something. I mean, who wouldnt love to play a Hello Kitty guitar to a crowd of metallers?

Actually I think Alexi just switched over to the Duncan Blackouts.

It was fairly recent. Supposedly they are alot like the EMGs he was using but alot quieter. I want to check them out.

I once played a Hello Kitty strat, and it wasn't really that bad. Pretty nice neck.

I say go for it if you want to.

Mick Thomson even switched over to the Blackouts. Seems, alot of people are leaving EMG.

My friend put blackouts into his schecter 7-string. He played it through a microcube and it was still the best tone I've ever heard in person.

I think it'd just be better to make a pink strat guitar with a FR and one pickup and stick the hello kitty pick guard on it. It'd actually sound good then instead of just being a bit of plywood with a pickup in.

I mean, from the "Cowboys from hell" on it, it gets pretty good tone with the EMG.
And if you modded a regular Strat the body routing wouldn't get covered by the Hello-Kitty pick-guard. So you'd have to completely carve your own custom Strat.

Edit:
Also the body is made of Agathis, not plywood.
I know that's still crap. But it's a step up. :P

I know, that's what I meant.

make a normal strat shaped body, route it for one pickup and then stick the hello kitty pickguard on.

My guess is a diMarzio X2N would be worth looking at.
It looks serious, too:




A GFS Power Rails would be cheaper, though.

That's actually pretty funny. My friend and I have been talking about doing that to a Hello Kitty guitar for quite some time. Every time we walk into the local shop we talk about putting in something like an X2N, EMGs or a Motherbucker and putting on a FR. Since neither of us have too much money, it hasn't happened yet.
