Soo i was looking to make my own guitar to customize and make ..my own. I have a Black Ibanez S520EX with EMG 81s in the bridge and 85s in the neck. i had to delete the tone knob to relocate the input jack. and taped a design on it to cover the previous input jack.
But...i like the look of the Schecter Avenger.. Always played Schecter before switching to Ibanez. only thing is..it'd be wicked expensive to get the gutiar how i want it. a Schecter Avenger flat top with a floyd rose and different neck with no fret inlays.
Question is....would it be considered not "custom" to get a Synyster Gates Custom Avenger (comes flat top with a original floyd rose). Sand it down, repaint it black, put my EMG's in it.. and somehow redo the neck to have no fret inlays ..maybe a different neck? Basically use the guitar for the flat top/floyd rose set up
Who cares what's considered custom or not custom? If you like a guitar, play it.
