Re: Keeping the LNG!
I have a question.....not to be offensive, or contrary, or anything of the sort, but why buy a guitar that you want to play if you can't make it your own.
It sounds like you want to PLAY this guitar, which will decrease the retail value I'm assuming, but if you're not looking to ever sell it (I don't know why you'd buy a guitar that you want to play, knowing you're eventually going to sell it), then what does it hurt to make it the way you want it?
I just bought a guitar a little while ago that, if I ever sold it, I would lose my ass on, but is by far the best playing Ibanez I've ever personally picked up....so to me, it was a win.
If that's your goal, then I would suggest following your heart, just don't have them glue the frets in, and you can have it re-fretted if you need to re-sell.
