$701.13

OK guys, this is kinda like a Fantasy Football thread but different.

linuxpenguin pointed out in another thread that Eddie Van Halen's original superstrat that cost him $150 back in the 70s would cost about $700 in today's money.

So you need to record a groundbreaking guitar based rock album. You've gotthe right amp... but what guitar and mods do you spend your 700 bucks on?

Re: $701.13

My #1 because i love the neck

1999 RG470np MIJ - $125
Dimarzio Air Norton, Pro Track, X2N in green - $230
Gotoh Floyd Rose - $250
Green Ibanez Knobs+Tip - $40
Tremolo-No - $70
Green Ibanez Headstock Decal - $25
Killswitch - $5
Black Paint Job at Home $0

Total $745

Wouldn't trade it for any other Guitar.
I have an 87 RG560 but the neck on the 470 just feels better to me.

A swirl job for $150--sure, but add another $150 for clearcoating it.

This sounds about right. I was going to say an RG570, no mods needed, but this sounds better.

Re: $701.13

RG520QS ( I already have one lol) - 300$
-Some Dinozzo's - $60+$60 and about another $60 for installation
= +/-480$ lol.

Or a Dinozzo in the bridge - $60 + about $30 install
sustainiac for the neck - $250 for the kit + about 60$ install, could be less, I have friends that could do it for me for free.
= about exactly 700

OR

A RG3120 - a little under $700, might be able to change a P/U

EDIT: okay, I hate autocorrect, but I'm leaving it as it is
