    Default Finally finalized my custom guitar! specs inside

    Hey Guys,
    I finally today finalized the specs and price of my custom made guitar. The guys who are making it are CB Perkins(cbperkins.com), a small guitar luthier company in San Jose CA. The specs are Alder Strat body(w/out ribcage contour), transparent honeyburst finish, unfinished maple neck with 70's oversized strat headstock, Floyd Rose mounted flush to the body w/ evh d-tuna, BareKnuckle VHII zebra in the bridge mounted to the body, Sustainiac single coil sized pickup in the neck, "tone" knob, 500k pot, mini toggle for pickup switching in traditional strat tone spot, Neck profile is copied right off my first year Wolfgang. It's going to end up around 1700-1800. I posted the custom guitar thing a few weeks ago, but forgot to add in labor and since then the sustainer pickup as well as the Bareknuckle pickup were added. Should be ready by the middle/end of October...way better than if I had to go through Charvel or Jackson and there would be no way I could something this customized. Just thought I would share.

    That sounds really nice! It sounds a lot like something I would have custom built. I can't wait to see some photos when it's finished.

    By the way, have you used that particular pickup before? If so, what do you think of it? I'm replacing a faulty pickup in my main guitar soon.

    actually, all I have to go on is sound clips and reviews and Tim from BareKnuckle's word about what the pickup is supposed to do. Kinda slim for such an expensive pickup, but your only young and have some money with nothing else to spend it on once.
