need advice on 1st build, Guthrie style RG 1570
Hello, I've visited this site and forums for about 12 years but I am just joining now. I own an RG7620 and RG421 as well as a bunch of other guitars (fenders, gibsons, frankenstrat). I'm really obsessed with that Guthrie Govan charvel ever since it came out. The problem is that it costs $3600. While i don't think its stupid to spend that much money on one guitar I have trouble justifying it right now when I already have 10 other guitars. So I'm looking to try an easy first custom build and do a much cheaper version of a Guthrie style guitar from RG parts. As much as play my strat, tele, ES-335, the one that I play the most, and has always been my fav, has been my 7620. So that's why I want to build this guitar using RG parts. The Guthrie Guitar has HSH configuration and direct mount pickups. I would like get a 1570 body since that matches that configuration and remove the paint and do an oil finish similar to my 421 for that natural look. I have a Blaze/Norton 7 in my 7620 so I wanted to try Tone Zone for the bridge and not sure about neck and single coil yet. Need some recommendations on that. I'm looking for a more mid range focused tone which is why I want the tone zone. I also want to keep the edge pro bridge on the 1570 (will do locking stud mod) but want to skip the locking nut and just do locking tuners. I'm not a heavy trem abuser but have always thought my Lo-Pro on my 7620 was the most comfortable trem I've ever used. So I'm looking to get a wizard II or III neck with the standard nut. I may have to shim the the bridge saddles slightly to match the 430 radius of the EP trem. Wizard II and III's are 400m. I would like to get a 430 radius neck with standard nut but those seem hard to find and/or much more expensive. The cheapest way I figure is to get everything separately and I'm hoping to build the guitar for around $800. I know I could spend much more than that but if I spend more than $1000 I really should be just saving that towards getting the real Guthrie guitar. Anyways, just wanted to see if anyone had any advice on what I'm trying to do and if there is anything I should do differently to do this cheaper or easier. I'll include a pic of what my guitar might look like from the V-RG builder (I couldn't get it to have the trem but not the locking nut) and a pic of Guthrie's Guitar. Thanks!
