PGM Custom?

Howdy all, I'm a huge Paul Gilbert fan and I am in dire need of a hardtail PGM. The thing is, I am not at all loaded, I'm a part time working teenager and I can't make the money to buy a new PGM301, so I was wondering if anyone knew of any luthiers or whatnot where I could get one built, I have a picture, and my specs are closer to the infamous "orange PGM" found on those Youtube videos. I checked out EKG, but I read that Eddie has been unresponsive lately, and I'm a newb at building guitars so I don't wanna pour a buncha money into a guitar that isn't gonna be worth it in the end. Or if anyone has a used PGM of $800 or less fell free to post it (hardtail preferably). I do realize custom built guitars can be rather expensive, but I would rather pay a grand for a hand-built model with my specs than for a factory produced model.
Here's the pic!

Basswood Body
Maple neck (with matching maple fretboard)
2 DiMarzio PAF Pros
PGM controls (I couldn't get the toggle to match up with the F-hole.
White binding
Red-Orange Paint
And the magic painted on F-Holes

Any help at all would be really appreciated, sorry for the long post.
Regards, Patrick

ET Guitars look quite cheap - someone just got a custom PGM, minus p'ups and hardware, for $800 from them.

First, welcome to the site, and second, you can buy a real PGM for $800. I have seen both a 301 and 500 sell in the last month for less than $800.

Just keep you eye on the bay, and you can snag one.

Re: PGM Custom?

Alright, I'll definately keep an eye on there, there's actually a 500 on there for $900 right now, but I still gotta save money to get some Christmas stuff right now, so it'll be a few months until I can afford it, but I still wouldn't mind getting a custom from ET. Thanks for the help dude!
