    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

    That looks great
    We demand a cover of David Lee Roth's Yankee rose, complete with lycra cat suit and karate kicks to an inflatable giant micro phone.

    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.:lol:

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

    Thanks Dave!:metal: 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.
