The Custom Guitar Thread!

I don't think a thread like this has been done before but forgive me if it has! Virtually everyone on here has mentioned having a custom made at one point or another so I thought it would be a good idea to see what everyone would have done if they could afford one. I'll start!

Ibanez JS Series body shape (Bass wood)
Neck-thru Maple neck with Ebony fretboard - full scallop - 22 frets (no face dots only side dots) (soft V profile, gloss finish)
Gotoh HAPs
Manson MBK2 bridge, GFS Dream 90 neck
Ibanez ZR Trem (with piezo saddles)
One volume for pickups, separate volume for piezo
Two recessed output jacks (Similar to the Ibanez JS Series)
Three-way strat style switch
Push pull on main vol for coil tap (bridge p/u)
Matte black finish to body, all hardware chrome

Sounds interesting - you're liking the MBK-2 then?

I'm not sure if I should post as I'm more than likely going to have this built, but...

mahogany tele-ish style body with rounded edges
lightly flamed maple neck with soft V profile. Clear gloss finish on the back.
chrome finish on body, gloss black on headstock front
22 fret ebony fretboard (compound radius, side dots only, 6105 frets, graphite nut)
bare knuckle nailbomb bridge pickup and mississippi queen neck pickup (chrome covers with black allen bolt pole pieces)
gotoh 510 HAP tuners (chrome finish)
gotoh 510 tune o matic bridge and tail piece (most likely with a solid black finish)
1x volume, 1x tone (with push pull coil split), 3 way toggle pickup selector, 1/4" jack on front


It's loosely based on an existing guitar which I think someone on here owns. I'll see if I can find a picture of it.

Yeah I don't think I've found a pickup I prefer more than the MBK2, it's a pretty good all round pickup! That sounds like it could be awesome, you have to get it made haha.

I'd absolutely love a really good quality acoustic made, that plays decently. Hardly any of the acoustics that I've played have been any good past the 12th fret - one that plays like an electric would be perfect.

Oooh looks nice, however there seems to be a distinct lack of a sound hole What sort of a difference does that make? Never tried an acoustic without one.

Didn't Fender do acoustic versions of a Strat and Tele? Hopefully play like the electric versions, can't imagine they sound good as an acoustic?


I would like a black American Tele to modify.

Well the only guitars I want are a Fender Jaguar and a 60/70's Gibson SG.

I guess along the lines of a Tele Plus, but different pickups (Bareknuckle Warpig?) and maybe a sustainer in the neck rather than a pickup?

Not put much thought into it, but I guess a Tele meant for huge amounts of distortion and fuck all else.

Nice topic idea, tomexclamationpoint!

My ideal custom: maybe the BiLT Relevator:

[img]http://www.premierguitar.com/Stream/...age_Type=image[/img]

Jazzmaster body shape with all the standard features and the addition of a Strat middle pickup.

Oh, and inbuilt fuzz and delay

If it has to be a Manson, I'd get something similar in an E shape.

Other than that, maybe a nice boutique relic Jazzmaster or Jaguar like the Danocaster I put in the General Gear & Tab thread.

I would probably opt to build one myself, but if I were going for a custom I'd probably have a nice Fender Custom Shop something or other. Most likely either a Jag or a Strat.

If it were a Jag I'd go for an Epiphone P90 in the bridge and probably a Fender single coil in the neck. Maybe 3 tone sunburst or a really deep blue.

And if it were a Strat then I would probably go for SSS (all Fender), perhaps a moderately aged white finish.

Nooooooo idea really, so this was a great post.

Enjoy.
