Hey, am getting an ESP LTD Alexi 200 soon and modding it up, well gonna add a pickup to it and add the pinstripe he has on his guitars onto it, I've seen pictures of peoples efforts but I want to know how you do it.

Thanks

TBH, I think it would be worth it in the long run to get the 600 model. Better bridge, craftsmanship, pickup, and has the pinstripe.

EDIT: Just checked the ESP website, and I would say definately get the 600 model, you can mod it all you want but it'll still be a bolt-on basswood body with a liscensed Floyd (unless the bridge is one of the tings you would change). I think you would regret it in a year or so.

I second that
if the pinstripes are important, then spend the extra $ for the 600, if its not that important then get the 200 and drop in an EMG in there and you have almost the same guitar (less the bridge)

I'm only after a budget backup guitar which I can mess about with tunings with as well, and I've read a few threads that say that you can get better for that price, but I can't find much that appeals to me. And also bear in mind from my sig that I have a 200 series already and I think it plays pretty good but just needs new pickups, but I'm selling the guitar. But yeah I am gonna mod the pickups and maybe get a new tremolo if I have the coinage.

And I only want to know how to make the pinstripe because not only it would look better but it saves me going to the shop and having to pay out more, and I'm fitting the pickup in myself before anyone says.

use the edge where it's angled out. like where the pinstripe's edge is if you know what i mean. look at the alexi-600, measure the angle with a protractor, kinda draw it out on your guitar. use painters tape, the blue stuff, to cover everything that is not the pinstripe. make sure the paint is coated really well. i see some videos on youtube where the paint is not even...

if the thing was black i'd paint it like red or green. if white, i'd do black or gold!!!

EDIT: or if it's black maybe silver, or glow in the dark, if there is glow in the dark paint. dayum glow in the dark wouldlook so damn cool.
