New super strat mods - birds eye - piezo

Well here is my newly modded super strat I just got done the other day.
Mods were-

New GFS pickups
Graph tech Ghost Piezos
Carvin neck with Birds eye maple fretboard
Grover tuners

All I can say is I love this guitar more than ever! Not totally set on the pickups yet but I love everything else that was done. The Piezos sound amazing thru my half stack and my acoustic amp. The New neck looks and plays amazing! I was worth the 10 weeks it took Carvin to make it, Well I hope you like it!

Enjoy the pics!

I love the 5 springs idea, I do it myself.
Do you use it to convert to a "hardtail" so to speak, or do you just like the extra tension when it comes to whammy use/string bends?

Which GFS pickups did you get? I had the Crunchy Rails in my old 6 string and loved them. Thinking of getting one of their mean 90s for more southern metal style tone on my sixxer

Check out my band, 1371:

Thanks! The piezos sound reaaly nice. They do not sound just like an acoustic but they are close.

I really use them to make it like a hardtail. I'm not really that talented at setting up trems.

They are the GFS Pafs and the single are the ones they had for sale in the clearance section.

Thanks Dave! I had to wait so long to get it, and was starting to get a little pissed off it was taking so long but after I opened the box it was so worth the wait.

Thanks Popsyche
I will look in to those pickups! They would look sick with orangs pups.

I did the swirl myself.


BTW - I had a local auto paint store mix the orange up for me - It's 1970 Hugger Orange, regular midnight black, and a Medium grey.
