Alright, so I'm building my own guitar and a pretty important question is bogging me down: should I have one pickup or 2? It may seem like a very obvious answer (most would say 2) but this is going to be a show guitar, not a guitar that I will play constantly as I have another for that. The guitar will be something along the lines of this baby (Type in Angel Sword Guitar in Google to find more pictures). Yeah it may seem impossible and blah blah blah, but I'm not putting up this thread so you can tell me that I'm gonna fail, I need some help. I'm thinking that it's going to have a Floyd Rose style nut at the head and a Steinberger bridge w/ tremolo arm, that's the only way I can think of that the real ESP version has tuners that aren't at the head (a tune-o-matic is another way to go but I'm not looking to spend a crapload of money on this). So back to the original question, I'm probably going to get an EMG-81 as the pickup for this if I only use one pickup, but if I do that, that I need to know what position to put it and such. If anyone has schematics for any guitar that has only one pickup or of a Flying V (I'm going to try to use that as a starting point and heavily modify the shape) than it would be very helpful.

Whenever I clean my guitars, my family wonders why it smells so good; I say that I exude a fresh citrus scent from hidden orifices.
