    Awesome, buddy! That's a great color combination. The black hardware and reversed headstock really tie it all together!
    Resident Schecter fanboy - EMG - Line 6 - NYXL - too much gain

    I built this in 2008 and it's been a really good guitar to me so I can't complain at all.
    The specs consist of:

    Alder Eden strat body (SSS routing) in Vintage White
    1994 Jackson King V Standard neck, I paint matched it with Rustoleum Ivory spray paint, added the Charvel water slide and a black pinstripe around the headstock

    The nut is a Kahler Floyd style nut from a 1990 Charvel 3DR (It's a righty nut, but there's a reversible string guide on top that I flipped around and I'm using 8-38's so there's zero issues at all.

    Jackson tuners from a 1990 USA Jackson
    1987 Charvel Model-2 neckplate/screws
    WD Products pickguard. It was a single coil bridge route only (weird) but I made it into a 1-hum, then later added a slanted single in the neck, which isn't even hooked up, just for looks. The mini toggle is just for looks also.

    Accutune bridge that I made into a hardtail by adding Kahler Bass trem springs and cranking down the set screw they designed in this to lock it down. Essentially its a double locking hardtail system. Brass rollers on the saddles... nice unit.

    The pickup is a very early 80's EMG-81 with a tan epoxy bottom and Ive had it forever it seems and it was always my fav 81 out of all the ones I had.

    Schaller strap locks.

    I am going to make another pickguard for this from matte black and it'll be a slanted humbucker only. Maybe after the Imperial is done...
