Hi I have an crapy Spectrum guitar (im guessing its made of alder) and want to add a new pickup (it only takes one) a warmoth neck and some new electronics like wires and stuff,im not sure if its worth it though; would i be better just buying another guitar? (i also have an ESP)
What i want to do:
-Add new Lace Alumintone aluma Hero Pickup
-Add new warmoth Vortex Neck
-Use hydro-graphic film (red snakeskin) to do the finish
-Redo electronics (i need suggestions for this)
I'll always say use what you have to make what you want. Then again, it depends on the hardware on the guitar too. No point putting a slick neck and quality electronics and pickups only for the thing to never hold tune, break strings constantly and suck the depth out of your tone due to a crappy bridge. Then by the time you buy the new hardware and everything else, you've spent as much as buying a warmoth body or better quality secondhand body with hardware attached.
Me personally if I were in a similar situation, would either buy a whole guitar or purchase better quality parts including a body if I wanted something unique or to fill a particular need.
