I have most of the specs in mind, but still struggeling with two options for the bridge. It will be a TOM, for sure. But should I go for string thru design or a stopbar with fine tune option?
I know most of you will ask, so here are the full specs:
left hand guitar
25" scale, 24 med-jumbo frets
Makassar fingerboard (highly figured) with own designed and executed inlay
Highly figured redwood top with matching headstock
schaller locking tuners
gotoh TOM bridge
string thru or schaller finetune tailpiece
EMG HET SET pickups
3-way toggle switch
abalone purfling, pearl binding for body and headstock
I will start on this after new year. Recently I was customizing my Ibanez RG after redoing my frets. Got rid of the plastic cover plates and created mysef some stainless steel ones which I also carved. Dumped the H-S-H pickups and installed 2 EMG's (81/60), removed the 5-way switch for a 3-way. Added a volume pot.

The fretwork was so good I decided to go for it and make myself a neck thru.
I LOVE MY Carvin DC727, but I also love to push myself to the limit. That's why I come up with crazy ideas like this.
Oh and thanks for the help on the last dilemma!

More metal = more sustain.
