Jackson Adrian Smith replica

I decided to make my old Squier with floyd rose become a replica of the guitar from my favorite guitarist: Mr. Adrian Smith.
The guitar will be based on the white Jackson Stratocaster '80s, which he used in tour of the albums Somewhere in time and Seventh son of seventh son

there is a photo of the guitar: adriansmith.jpg

The neck: one piece maple, 22 jumbo frets, black dots, double action truss rod, locking nut 43 mm (R3), there is still deciding what will be the radius of the fretboard, it will be 16 or a compound one (12 to 16) , satin finish, and gloss finish on the headstock.

The tuners: Gotoh's black, no lock

The body, will be a Squier 90s, alder and floyd rose, and as the cavity of the neck pick up is single it needs to be increased.
Pickups:

Bridge: Dimarzio super distortion f spaced black.

Middle: Keystone K-200

Neck: Seymour Duncan 59

Electric: 5 position selector switch, one volume knob and tone.

Pickguard: Custom Warmoth's. Black / white / black hsh.

Bridge: Floyd Rose Pro-line.

Paint: Gloss white
Note: All hardware will be black
The project will be done with this luthier:http://www.musicmaker.com.br/

What do you think? Will be a versatile guitar? Comment and give suggestions!

I'll post pictures of the guitar soon
Sorry about my bad english

Definitely an awesome build! You have chosen the best guitarist in my book. I would love to see your progress, so keep posting updates for us. When this guitar is finished, maybe you can build Adrian's synth guitar from Somewhere In Time. I think it was a Jackson...

Yes I know, my friend. I have a very good friend who lives in Curitiba. He comes to Chicago to visit a few times each year and he always brings a list of things he needs to buy for people back home. Haha When I save enough money, I will go and visit him next time. Maybe I'll meet some nice bunda.

Re: Jackson Adrian Smith replica

i think 12 to 16 compound radius will be the best if you look at the current adrian smith model it will be that radius

p.s i also i think it is so cool your putting in all the hardware from the old version and not the new h-s-s ones there making now
