I wasn't trying to insult you.

I just thought the neck/middle pickups looked somewhat oddly mounted. I could be wrong.

EDIT: And maybe it's just the picture, but they don't appear to be aligned with the strings very well. Especially the middle one.

Oh, okay.

What people wanted to know is who built the guitar.

Also, was this built for you? How much did you pay for it?
#14
could i get around $600 for it?

No one is going to be able to tell you this without knowing what it's made of. That is the huge factor.

The parts you listed by themselves would not get you $600, no, sorry. It could be made out of plywood for all we know.

Oh, so this is a Brownsville guitar that you modded? It's not custom built then. There is a difference.

I don't know anything about what/how Brownsvilles are built. I'm still going to have to go with no, you're not going to get $600 for it.

A lot of guitars have a maple neck, so probably.

The only way you can know for sure is to find out what model of Brownsville it is.

EDIT: From some quick research it seems as if Brownsville makes pretty entry-level guitars, so I don't think it's going to sell for much.

Well, you haven't provided a lot of detail on some of the parts you did change, such as the bridge.

Also, you didn't change everything, i.e. the tuners, the nut, etc.

The neck and the body are two of the most important parts. If they are made out of cheap wood then all the mods in the world aren't going to help.
#21
Was it originally a guitar make before you modded it like a Ibanez or something, or is it completely custom?

The body isn't maple, I'm pretty sure about that.

I can't really tell you a value. I would have to know how much you paid for it new. I can't seem to find any Brownsville guitars that exceed $180 right now.

My guess? Maybe $250. Again, I have no idea what brands of everything you put in and how well it was done, etc. Without knowing the wood (which I'm guessing isn't that great) it's impossible to tell.

Cheap guitars aren't worth modding for this reason. They don't return on the investment.
