    So ive had this stuff kickin around at a buddies house for 2 years or so now in hopes that his dad was gonna route the bridge and wire it and my friend was gonna finish it. Dad said he wasnt comfortable doing the bridge route and my buddy basically said i couldnt pay him enough to do the finish because he simply dosent have the time....so to my local GC it goes...i dont have the tools or time so im friends with a tech that says hes gonna tackle it for me, ill upload progress picks as he goes. So plan is zr ball bearing trem 401 sustainer kit and painting it flat to match the headstock, not 100% on pickups yet but it will only be a bridge only, or i might do a kerry king and throw a single coil in the hum housing so i have 2 pickups but thats later 20190324_203139.jpg

    Your GC (guitar center I'm assuming) will finish and build this for you? I didn't think GC would do that sort of work.

    he literally says in the post that it's a GC tech that he's friends with.. not that GC is helping people do builds/etc
