    Believe it or not-
    I'm slowly building up an "Unchained" guitar. I've bought the neck and body from Warmoth (A GREAT start for this project). I know my guitar is not going to be exact, as it has been impossible to find exact specs for this guitar, as well as pics of the back of the sucker! Some people may scoff at what I have but I went with an Alder body, one humbucker route-set up like the Wolfgang/EBMM route. Being the Unchained guitar had a front loading amp cable load (unlike the 5150 where you plug the cable into the guitar on the side of the bottom of the body), I went with that route, and the volume knob will be a bit lower than usual, due to the fact Eddie had his lower on this guitar. Floyd Rose is a must, and I will be getting a D-Tuna, even though Eddie never had one back in the day-however, he used a lot of D tuning on Fair Warning.
    Shaller Tuning pegs (I don't think I've ever seen Eddie NOT use 'em), and I bought a maple Warmoth neck, Wolfgang profile on the back, Quartersawn. Most of Eddies guitars, if not all DO NOT HAVE FINISH on the necks. I chose to get a satin finish on my neck. Its sealed, but doesn't exactly feel like it.
    I've never gotten an exact answer as to what Pickup Eddie is using. Some say it was a custom pickup made by Seymore Duncan, some say it was a '59...I say I'm probably gonna do a '59, as I seem to have heard more people point to that pickup. Hope some of this helps. -Red43j
    Eddie must think I'm a BOZO to want to drop THAT much on one of his new Charvel Guitars!

    Not to be a dick but there's a sticky thread at the top of the main guitar forum page that is meant for this type of convo, closing.
