Your most modified guitar.

  1. I threw everything at this except the kitchen sink.
    This SE started life as a plain Jane black body, white p/guard Strat.
    Every single component was replaced except the trem claw & neck plate. I repainted the body an heirloom white. I did this one three years ago. It's a great guitar and plays like a dream.

    The one in my avatar is my most modded, but I'm not the one who messed it all up

    It started life as a Bullet 1 MIK (E7 serial number)

    This is the only modified guitar I have, and it's not very modified. It's a 2016 Fender Standard Strat in White Opal (limited edition). Basically, just a MIM Standard in a special color with matching headstock.

    It has Tex Mex pickups (920D Custom loaded pickguard) and Fender locking tuners. Everything else is stock.

    Probably this one. Started off life with its original owner stock save for the logo having been sanded off. I added, at her request, an HSH black pearl pickguard, and a set of Guitar Madness hexbuckers in the neck and bridge, along with new strap buttons. The original owner then fell in love with my Avril Lavigne Tele and offered a trade that I accepted, we even swapped the guitar straps. I then swapped the Fender logo sticker she'd put on there for the Squier waterslide. I changed the bridge pickup to a GM Bruizer pickup, then I changed the tuners to a brushed chrome look. Now, during lockdown I had a custom cut HHH pickguard, took out the neck hexbucker and middle single coil for a pair of blacked out hexbuckers and boom.

    Oh, I forgot, its also wired to have a volume for the bridge/neck pickup, and a separate volume for the mid pickup using the middle tone pot. The bottom tone is a master tone.

    Here is my Ibanez RG series that has an EMG active pickup in the bridge and stock nonactive pickup in the neck pos. I bought it for $60 off the cheap used rack at Sam Ash, it had a lot of little stuff that had to be fixed but sounds fantastic and has the wizard neck. I bought it because I wanted a 24 fret guitar to work on scales. it was a diamond in the rough this guitar has a few cigarette burns, nicks and gashes but a lot of mojo. It's name is Casper

    You guys have all seen this one a bunch of times, but it is my most modified guitar. Started life as a sunburst SE. Absolutely everything has been replaced except the neck and body. Pickups are Buddha, custom wound for me. CTS pots, switchcraft switch and jack, and an orange drop cap. All cloth push back wiring. No name locking tuners from China, GFS brass block bridge, and Graphtech nut and string trees. I think that’s everything! :)

    My most modded is my 2013 Fender Blacktop Baritone Tele. I installed a Hipshot bridge with GraphTech String Saver saddles, Hipshot DiRetroFit Locking tuners, GraphTech nut, a set of Seymour Duncan Pegasus\Sentient humbuckers. Emerson pots, treble bleed on the volume & push\pull on the tone for coil split, CRL blade switch, orange cap, black Pearl pickguard, black metal speed knobs with black Pearl caps, & to finish it off, strap locks... She's my baby...A sludge\doom\stoner metal beast tuned to A\Drop G.

    By volume, this would have to be the most modified.

    1111192134.jpg

    Starcaster Mini with some serious liposuction and a headstock job to become my travel guitar. One humbucker, no knobs, stock hardtail bridge, this is about as close as you can get to no longer being an electric guitar. :)

    My HSS Bullet Strat ….wired a jumper for the neck tone knob to work on the bridge pickup as well …..that's it!!!! LOL … 7 electrics, and that's all I've felt I needed to do. I may put humbucker sized P90s in my Epi LP someday, but, no hurry
