Hi guys I've posted about getting a custom guitar build here before and nothing has come about, although now it actually will as I've put in money to make it happen - I'm ready to go, just finalising a few specifications! The guitar is custom being built by Spalt Guitars and is a mixture of Ibanez Universe/K7 series guitars and my custom ideas. The specs are below and might change slightly, I will update this thread with pictures and details as the build progresses. Specifications: Neck: 2003 Ibanez K7 neck dimensions Construction: Neck-thru Neck wood: 5 piece walnut with thin maple stripes Body wings wood: Maple Backing wings wood: Mahogany Horn (upper): Aluminium Horn (lower): Wood Neck Pickup: Blaze neck Humbucker Middle Pickup: Blaze Single Coil Bridge Pickup: Blaze bridge Humbucker Bridge: LoPro 7 Tuners: GOTOH with locking nut Pickup selector: 5-way Knobs: 1 volume knob only Lead input: Angled like on Universe/JEM guitars The second part of this thread is my funding. I'm going to sell my Ibanez K7 (FB, 8/10 condition, stock with case and books) and my Ibanez Universe MC Swirl (9/10 condition, case) fund this custom guitar - I don't play them enough compared to some of my other UV's and 7's. Does anyone know what I should be pricing these guitars at? I will get pictures of these as soon as I can and probably use my eBay account to list them. Any experts at pricing who could give me reasonable ballpark figures that would be great - these ARE NOT for sale here, just need some info on them - if it will be hard to sell, prices they normally go for etc. Just general advice. If anyone wants to give me advice on a build or what pickups I should use or any other information please do as I've only put down Blaze pickups for the guitar as a placeholder until I (if I) come across anything better. I usually like a low, heavy sound for riffing but I do like to solo and use the whammy a bit, so I'm really stuck for pickup combos. If anyone has cool pictures of custom guitars to give me ideas of ideas for anything on the guitar that would be amazing or unique, please share them I'm new to custom builds and have little experience with anything other than Ibanez/Fender and Spalt designed guitars. I hope this build will inspire people to consider custom builds and guitar work.
