mmm, i dunno... theyre paying for a relic job, and that detail and craftsmanship is something to pay for...

now, what i do find funny, is that the people shelling out the big bucks somehow feel that theyre gonna sound like the drunk parts scavenging dude with no luthiery skills did...

Sorry to jack the thread but this guy's quality and attention to detail seems out of this world.........i hope his prices aren't, maybe they can beat fender's 25000 offer!

He also does 5150 replicas, all eras of the frankenstrat (not just the final paint scheme), wolfie bodies, charvel bodies, and necks to match.
James prices are very very good . I'm having some thing done by him and should finished soon I'll post review then .

I actually came across that website. But don't they only provide the neck and body; I would still have to finish the neck and body and then assemble the guitar correct?

I can always slap a good quality Warmoth neck on there later.

The Ping FR is the only licensed FR that has the right to bear the "Floyd Rose" mark. It's made by an US company under the supervision of FR. It is a bit cheaper that an OFR but it's made of hardened steel like the OFR and from the reviews I gathered it stays just as well in tune as the OFR.

Here's the issues with the guitars. I know because I had one.
They look of them is fantastic. Cool tops and sharp looking.

Pickups - Change Em.

The Floyd Rose is a Licensed Floyd. It is the cheapest version they make. It will NOT stay in tune.

Neck is like a Baseball bat. If you like THICK, your gonna love this one.

I think the basis for the guitar is great, but you will need to mod the crap out of it.
I purchased one years ago, and didnt know what real quality was at the time.
You have to understand the picture you see, is the guitar you will get, but the picture does not really get into the main things that make a quality quitar.

If it wont stay in tune why have it?
