I'm not a big fan of gold hardware, but that guitar just seems to need it...For me the chrome looks out of place.

haha really? If anything i feel the exact opposite. And I actually really dislike chrome hardware, it looks overly showy in my opinion and it seems to fade a lot faster than chrome.

I think the top is beautiful, but I also think that a 3+3 headstock would make that guitar pop! Very nice work and at the price stated earlier I dont think you can go wrong.

For now I love it as is, but in the future who knows, might get a new neck made for it, I think 3x3 might also look a little cooler. Thanks for your comment!

Lol woah. Yeah...not my cup of tea. Im most likely going to leave it as is, I LOVE this thing. It has this Carvin meets Alembic vibe that i just dont wanna change.

Oh and I'd like to report as probably the first person on here to coil tap an Evo 2 (or to at least write about it), it sounds absolutely amazing. Probably the best sounding coil tapped clean tone of any pickup I've tried.

I dig it. It has a really organic look to it. I like Alembics, though, so there you go. What kind of stuff are you going to play on it?

If I were you, I would have put a cocobolo fretboard on it, but it's your guitar, so it's your call.
