First off, I would like to thank everyone in the UG community. Everyone is always so helpful, especially in this section. I just didn't want to post a random thread to say it.

With that out of the way, a little introduction: I'm 16, and looking to build a guitar. Time is a factor, so I've decided to purchase a kit instead. However, I would like to customize the fret inlays. Instead of the traditional dots (or birds in some cases), I would like my name. Is it possible to alter this without constructing a new fretboard? Keep in mind I'm only 16. Equipment, skills, and money are limited.

Also, if possible, a killswitch. How would I go about installing a push-button one? How would I go about cuttting holes, wiring, etc. Please word as simply as possible.

Again, thanks for your time and help.
<---GB&C is that way

Seriously, on the fretboard inlays, GB&C will help you a lot more.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.
This thread would probably be better there. You might get more/better responces there, as theres luthiers that converse on there.

What the fuck man!? That's SWEET

I think I might actually use that!

Yup head over to the Guitar building section there are people other than 13-17 year olds wondering what guitar they will buy next.
