Just thought I would post some pics of my new project guitar. It started out as a neck I bought from Gary (the.godfoather) here on the forum about 2-3 years ago and a lo-pro I bought from Rich about 6-7 years ago. Finally got round to ordering a swirl from Herc and acquiring the...
Here are some pics of my recently completed Richie Kotzen Horror guitar replica. I thought it appropriate to post it on Halloween. Check it out:

after years of deliberating I had to do something, either throw it away or give it some "treatment"... what? you ask....

I know this may sound like a crime to some people around here but I plan to put a fixed bridge on a JEM instead of the manufactory tremolo. Beyond the aesthetic aspect, I'm wondering if you guys would see some danger, problem or possible damage for the guitar. I would of course have this done by...
