So I have 4 guitars now.. 4 Ibanez guitars (2 old roadstars, an S470, and my first prestige S5470). I love them for metal, and ive built my whole rig around my band for the last 5 years which is modern metal.
However, I also love straight up rock. Now that I have my S prestige, my mesa dual rec, my splawn 4x12 and my effects set up I finally have a little $ to spend on a guitar that wont be for my band.
Im thinking of going to warmoth for the following (rough idea here):
-Mahogany SG shaped solid body
-Bolt on Mahogany neck with rosewood fretboard (havent decided on a headstock style yet), and probably just satin finish
-Neck is going to have a wizard profile since im more comfortable on thinner necks
-2 P90s (possibly 2 P90s with a P-rail in the middle?)
-Tune-o-matic bridge (for this guitar i just want a fixed bridge that will stay in tune great)
-schaller tuning pegs
thats kind of where I am at right now. This will be my first non ibanez (probably only for long time too heh) and the first guitar I will be putting together piece by piece.
Any suggestions, advice? I will be buying all the parts, hardware, electronics etc. and then having a friend who works on guitars help me put it together. I will probably paint or stain this guitar myself too and ive never done that before, so that should be interesting
(im sure there are several topics on painting or staining on this board already though)
