So I wanna "trick out" my guitar by modding it, and was wondering if you guys have any ideas. I have already removed my tone pot, added a killswitch, and added a clean/overdriven switch. And of course I've changed pickups. What are some other cool things to do?

I can't imagine anything worse than shagging to Mark Knopfler.

Maybe shagging Mark Knopfler, but that's about it.

on youtube there's a guy with fretboard lights inlays. they only light up when you fret a note at that position. it's pretty cool

soda machine, money box, have a small treadmill and then get mice to run in it so you can have your pick ups powered by mice!!!!

what guitar do you have?
In your eyes I see the darkness that tourments you, and in your head where it dwells, I'll give you my hand if you reach out and grab it, let's walk away from this hell.

not necessarily something "cool" in appearance but will overall give you a greater sound coming from your guitar.
1 meg volume pots and replace pretty much all stock electronics to american made parts ( stock are generally low quality and ruins your signal even before it gets to the cable going to your amp.)
Re solder the guitar's output jack, stock jobs are ok... you'll get a way better signal redoing it properly, re solder the ground wire on your bridge ( grind off some metal for a better contact ) a better ground will give you a cleaner and clearer attack and less noise, then apply a generous amount of solder to stick the sucker back to it's place.

Well if you have gigs, I'd say a condom dispenser... classe. And It's useful.


Has anyone mentioned any paint jobs yet? That's not really too hard.

switch out the binding for neon lights. and light it on fire. and install a smoke bomb place in it, like Ace Frehley did.

Mount a mini amp into it, wire up a switch so that you can switch it between amp and jack!

I've Always wanted to do that.

Make it neckless
You make a talk a large metal rod and put thick fret wire on it
You also have to have the tuning pegs at the bottom of the body but it's awsome

Put a sustainer pickup in it, an octave down switch, and a coil split.
...
Please do not insinuate anything sexual from that.
