As promised, here's the picstory of modifying my new white Xiphos.
First we need tools:
Then we'll need parts:
List of Parts:
Black Original Floyd Rose(used)
Black Humbucker Rings
Black Tuners(generic lefthanded)
Black dome knobs with white pearl tops
Shorter trem block for OFR
Saddle shims for OFR
First thing is get rid of the original hardware:
Then we take a dremel to the bridge rout so the OFR will fit, fun fun:
Done! Now to touch it up with some white paint:
Level and re-crown!
Dye the fretboard:
At this point I was expecting my pickups to come in. They did not. So, thinking it would only be another day or so, I installed the extra pots I had laying around.
A week and a half later I finally get my pickups. It seems some shops don't feel they need to have items in stock that they list on ebay. DOH!
Anyway, new pickup day!
One Blackout Neck in white, one Blackout Metal Bridge in white. Yay!
New tunes administered:
Finally, put together! Now I just need a suitable strap. I think this matches:
Now for some big ass pictures of the completed mod:
If you made it this far, thanks for reading!!!
That looks badass I like it. I'll bet it sounds and feels even better now too.
