    Thanks Mys and Lowberg. :)

    I've decided that once I buy that toneport, I'm selling one of my guitars and building my own custom Strat.

    Mahogany body, maple neck, ebony fretboard, H-S-S pickup config, I'm thinking no pickguard, not sure what to do for inlays.

    Right now I'm planning on Dimarzio pickups. Either Cruisers in the Middle and Neck, or an HS-3 in the middle and YJM in the neck. Don't know about the bridge.

    Unsure about hardware color.

    EDIT: Oh, and white neck binding. Body finish will probably an aged, off-white cream color. Or silverburst. Standard strat bridge/trem.

    I don't really understand how it's "ugly", it's too simple to be ugly, a matt black V with 7 strings and a little design on the body, how is that ugly?

    What's the problem? I think it's kinda nice...the headstock fits well too! Also, there are almost no V-guitars with 7 strings.

    Well, I think it's cool LTD finally has a 7-string V which will probably bring many customers ;)

    Simple question for the fruity loops users: How can I use the wav files in fruity loops (on the left side in the packs folder) as soundfonts? I already have a midi track with 3 instruments and I dont find good soundfonts for them. But the wav files sound perfect.

    Are edge pro III bridges as shitty as everyone makes them out to be? They seem to get a bad rep, but I don't know if it's because they actually do suck or the people just don't know what hell they are doing.

    Because it's the one he's used for ages, and it's one everyone can pretty much already buy just + a trem. The opportunity arised for something great and different that no-one has seen for years to go on sale again. But no, retarded fuckwits denied that chance.

    People are stupid.

    I really like the new Fireman he's playing, though.

    I was just about to post the same thing. :lol:

    It does look awesome though, wish I had the money for it.

    In my planning of this Strat I'm building, I'm wondering if I should just go all out in S-S-S, or if I should stick to that humbucker in the bridge.

    Buying a pair of celestion gt75's tomorrow to throw in the legacy w/ greenbacks in an X pattern.

    I need a rack case, new tubes, decimator, another RR, a maxon boost, VHT 2/90, a bunch of other shit.

    H-S-S! that's what I did when I built my strat!

    Though you could go S-S-S and if you wanted a humbucker they make some humbuckers in single coil sizing.

    My advice is to get a body routed for H-S-S so you can do either or.

    Don't like the Peavey Classic power amp?
    Yours is the 60/60 right? I dont know why they put the controls on the back of the 60/60 that has to be a pain

    Good call, I was thinking the same thing actually.

    Besides, I'm not sure I could give up that thicker body of the humbucker, or at least the option of it when I need it.

    Still torn between the Dimarzio Cruisers in the neck and middle or a YJM (neck) and HS3 (middle). For the bridge I want to try the Andy Timmons, but I'm not sure how well that could do metal. Aside from that, I have no idea what I could put in... maybe a Tone Zone? Or even an Air Norton or Air Zone. Though they may have a similar problem as the Timmons.

    EDIT: Basically, I'm going for the guitar lovechild of Timmons' Ibanez, Cantrell's G&L Rampage, and Yngwie's Strat.
