Since I can't really afford $3500 CAD, I was wondering if theres a guitar with similar specs cause the sound is kickass! Check it out:

I suppose something similar to his older model would be just as good, his older model is here (scroll down a bit):

I don't think your going to find even anything remotely close my friend. You'll probably have to get one custom made.
Be cool.

Yeah, the Gus G sig is probably about as close as you're going to get but that's H-H not H-S pup configuration.

So what you really want is an Alder, EMG-equipped guitar?

Sorry for the late reply, midterms were a bitch..

Back to topic: Yes, essentially thats what most important, that pickup combination and the type of wood. I don't care much for original floyd, i think licensed will work just as fine or none, it doesn't matter

get the gus g (provided its the same wood for the neck and body) then replace the neck pick up with the emg coil tapable pick up.

I've seen an old Charvel (I think) that was similar to Syu's custom. I'm not to sure though so I guess this post is useless lol
