Cosmo Vs Black....

So im doing a custom build.... a P&W swirl onto a gem body, so basically a 6 string version of a Universe MC Swirl.

Question is....

What Bridge should I get- Edge or Pro-Edge

And what colour for the term/nut/tuners - Cosmo Black or Full Black...


Im stuck... keen to hear your thpughts and suggestions!

Re: Cosmo Vs Black....

Well what colour, and bridge profile do you prefer? You're building this guitar for yourself, not us!

Re: Cosmo Vs Black....

yeah true..... Im leaning towards the Full Black to be honest.... think it sits with the bright swirl colour better....

as far as trems go... I like the Lo-pro cause it sits flatter, but.... I dont really know the ins and outs of them.... is the Edge superior, more reliable, give the guitar better re-sale value later in life?

Re: Cosmo Vs Black....

There is no better out of the bridges you've listed, just personal preference towards comfort, looks etc. Again, get what you want. Forget about about resale value, etc, this is a custom guitar for yourself. You won't make your money back on customs anyway.
