1 - RGA body with natural maple binding.
2 - Mahogany, Quilted Maple Top. Trans red or blue. The finish would have an undercoat of black, sanded back, underneath it though. Like Carvins Deep finishes.
3 - ZR7 Trem with the arm holder switched to a stainless steel one.
4 - custom wound HSH pickups, active for low string pull, but with a circuit designed NOT to limit like EMGs. Failing that, the same but with an 18v circuit.
5 - 5 piece maple/ebony neckthrough, reinforced with graphite rods, with an ESP alexi neck profile and a 26" scale to keep the low B tight.
6 - Reverse headstock
7 - Flame Maple Binding on the neck and headstock
8 - Ebony Fretboard
9 - J-Custom Style Vines in Flame maple
10 - seperate on/off and splitting miniswitches for each pickup.
11 - A freakin Peizo, with both piezacoustic and MIDI functionality. (Routed to the same jack for peizo and magnetics, with a midi plate for midi output.)
12 - 24 frets, scallop the last 7.
13 - Extra deep pullup routing.
14 - A better sustain block on the trem, brass and larger. Wouldn't allow for a ZPS bar because i never use the damn thing.
15 - Stainless steel jumbo fretwire, with the ends completely rounded.
16 - Big volute on the neck for sustain and rigidity.
17 - Locking tuners
18 - At the headstock, a retention bar backed with felt to damp headstock vibrations
19 - Satin neck finish
20 - Modified tremolo machined to tighter tolerances to prevent sway and movement, right down to the posts and studs.
21 - Direct Mounted Pickups.
22 - CTS Potentiometers, volume and tone.
23 - "Blower Switch" which bypasses volume and tone pots when pressed, in order to give more brightness and volume to the tone.
24 - Modified internal wiring with slightly thicker than standard guage OFC copper and braided shielding.
25 - Modified shielding and backplates with no gaps in them, copper tape shielding in ALL cavities, including back and pickup routes. NOT conductive paint.
I'll add more ridiculous requests as and when I think of them. Suffice to say, I demand a LOT from my guitars.
