So I was thinking about doing some sort of guitar build as a summer project. However, I'm debating whether to start completely from scratch with all new parts, or use part of what I have already.
I have a 3-4 ish year old RG350MDX. I absolutely hate the neck and the trem, but from my understanding the trem can be replaced with an edge pro, or with some redrilling, an OFR.
However, the idea of building a guitar from scratch seems really interesting, that and I've seen some fairly cheap square heel wizard necks. I also have heard good things about Nate Pearle's necks and bodies.
That being said, here are my ideas:
1) Put a new neck, bridge, and pickups on my RG.
2) Buy a JEM body from Nate and a Wizard neck and start from scratch.
3) Buy a nnd a body from Nate and build a custom JS
Any feedback and/or tips would be appreciated. Thanks.
