    Define stock. Every guitar I own have schaller strap locks install. As for other mods, my rg2570vgd, rg2550e, rg3570 and s5470 are untouched. Everything else have had pup changes, from d-activators all the way up to BKP.

    My old starcaster is stock. My Schecter's only change is a set of passives instead of the EMGs they can't with.

    None, unless you don't count things like nut replacements. In that case my acoustic is stock :lol:

    I'd say 99% of my guitars are stock. I rarely buy anything that has been changed, and that only includes pickup swaps. If someone changed the neck, or added an extra knob or splitter, I'm out.

    Personally I've only had one guitar altered in 20 years - a 1985 black Jackson Soloist with 2 humbuckers. I had a pair of EMG's installed to make a Hanneman replica.

    Technically, could I consider my custom ESP Eclipse stock? I mean I haven't changed anything from how I ordered it. It's stock in that sense.

    Other than that, out of my current 10 guitars 2 are stock:

    LTD Ron Wood sig Tele
    LTD EC-1000T/CTM DMZ

    The rest are mostly actual ESP's that have had the pickups changed atleast (from the stock EMG's to various Passives.. The LTD's above came stock with Passives so no need) and some the hardware has been changed for simple aesthetic purposes.
