I've mailed RAN Guitars and after responding (best and fastest customer service ever?) it seems like they can do exactly what I want. Save for a SLIGHTLY MINOR variation on body and headstock, but it's still within acceptable difference from Jackson or old ESP M-I
They do it ALL!
Neckthru construction with all white gloss finish
3-piece maple neck
Richlite fretboard (!!!)
Gotoh GE1996T Floyd Rose (!!!)
Stainless steel frets
I'll probably ask for an EMG 81 just "to be safe".
And all these excellent specs, at a (for a custom) reasonable price. Still a bank breaker, tho. Haha!
The question is! I know these guys have been increasingly popular, but are they still good?
Real world RAN Cruiser (with Thor headstock)
They can do this with elbow only contour! I don't want that djenty bevel.
RAN HAS THE MOST AWESOMELY MIRROR SHINY GLOSS FINISHES I'VE EVER SEEN!!!!!!!!!
"Thanks guys, I'll get back to you in 2019!!"
