Someone else modified my guitar 😊🤗😍

@MrsNel: what did they modify for you?
ZzLig · 31-35
Haha they didn't do it for me.. I bought it used.. They hacked out the pickups and replaced them I guess but left gaping holes in the thing 🙄 But I love the guitar. It sounds lovely imo and it's a beautiful color like a deep navy blue.. (Look purple) anyway I don't play but :) I like it

I used to do really whacky modifications to my guitars. I haven't even really played in 5+ years now though.

I like the wood. It's pretty.

The top one is a one piece English Ash body cut for me by Touchstone Tonewoods in 1981 it is a nice piece

Oooo I like that red one :)
Nunos50 · 51-55, M
The EVH is very good paint job - did you do all that with the masking, remasking etc? I see you didn't go Floyd on that too - good choice! Lol - I don't have any Floyd guitars any more so much hassle just changing strings and given I'm not a huge dive bomb whammy specialist just not worth it for me. My favourite trem is the PRS one, I've an old CE22 and it just works so well on that guitar and needs very little maintenance

@Nunos50: I just saw this..lol...I did all the masking yeah..that was a very long painstaking process as i wanted it to look as much like Eddie's as possible.. i never bothered with the Floyds, just didnt see the need to

I don't, I'm a drummer, but they're two beautiful guitars sir!

I need you to build me a lefty Telecaster with a piezo bridge :) I've been meaning to learn to play guitar since forever, but finding a lefty is like mission impossible.
Nunos50 · 51-55, M
You should look at a guy called sonicwingnut on YouTube he is a lefty he is building a left hand Tele at the moment. He's really funny too

Flipping heck. That's before getting everything else. Could be pricey build... oh and not left handed, might have to have bridge pickup a la Hendrix
SW User
@Nunos50: thanks, I will.
Would u ever build a sitar ???
Nunos50 · 51-55, M
Unlikely. I mostly build from stock components, assembly really. Also there's no way I could play it
