sounds like the way it's going to turn out will really look like it'll be custom. tbh, i think both your takes on the floyd rose would be great. The transition idea is really good, but, similarly, if it goes chrome, distressed, chrome, then it'll look like the distressed one is sticking out in such a way that it was put there mega specifically.

i've a black floyd rose on my peavey rotor ex, and against the red with black pickups it looks great. I've decided to get my first build chromed if i can. there's a place locally that does it. chrome body with all black everything else could look great cos of the reflection.

edit:
also, just did a vray render of my 1st build design. highest res i've done on it, and shows the whole guitar. looks awesome. body gets shipped on the wednesdarrh

Any advances on 500?


More seriously, that's probably an excellent price - I just need to raise capital and weigh up my options (ie could just buy another mim and have it pimped)...

It'd pretty much be MIM spec'd dimensions wise with texas specials, upgraded tuners/nut/bridge, slightly fancier switching system and a retard finish... Possibly black with gold glitter

Not sure about scratchplate/no scratchplate though...

Go polka dot with the finish.
















Actually, I'm dead serious.
