If you could customize your own JS, what would you put on it?

My choices:

JS Body: Basswood
Neck: Maple JS
Fretboard: Ebony
Frets: 24 Dunlop 6105 Frets
Inlay: Abalone DNA inlay (Like the Vai2K)
Finish: Irridescent (Black/Green/Purple)
Harware: Orginal Edge trem, Gotoh Tuners, barrel knobs, all chrome hardware
Pickups: 2 DiMarzio Tone Zones with Coil-Tapping, 3-way toggle switch, 1 volume control, 1 tone control
Strap: DiMarzio Clip Lock
Strings: D'Addario .008-.032

A lot of stuff, but a boy can dream. :lol:

I also wouldn't mind having a 7-string chromeboy! If I were to have more than one custom, I'd take another with the same choices, except White and with PAF JOE pickups and black hardware.

Good one! I bet the Balso wouldn't hurt when you do the round the world and smack yourself in the head with the guitar!

1 piece maple neck with 24 frets non-AANJ inlays would be roman numerals 8)
Swamp Ash body
24 SS frets
Steve Morse Humbucker bridge and an Air Norton in the neck
orignal Edge tremolo in gold
white body
11-52 strings with a lowish action

:twisted:

EDIT: Make it with a hollow body but no sound holes and 2 mini toggles (on, off split) for each humbucker and thats my Dream 8)

Mine would be a 7-string. Black walnut body (matching headstock overlay), three-piece maple neck with unmarked ebony fretboard. Fixed bridge, Duncan JB-7 and '59-7 (or maybe a Jazz-7) and my own wiring config. Maybe a piezo system on there, too.

JS6 with tree of life inlay, coil tap for each pickup, original floyd rose, ebony board, gold hardware, super distortion in the bridge, air norton in the neck.

You use .008s matt? Daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaag. I bet you pop more strings than an overweight trapese artist. :lol:

Finish: Body plated with Cosmo Black (if they could find a solid way to preserve or make the cosmo black more fade resistant)
