Jack Black Posted April 15, 2008 Report Share Posted April 15, 2008 First of all this is my first post, although I enjoy reading this forums for a while now, so Hi! Well I finally got the nerve to do some diy on my own. I have laying around here my first guitar which is a Squier Stagemaster Deluxe HSH. The body seems quite solid and is in alder and is reasonably heavy, so I'd guess it's not as bad as one would suppose. It has a Floyd Rose trem though which I don't particularly use and don't like the cut in sustain, it has a single coil pickup between the two hambuckers which I actually don't use, the neck although not being totally bad could be better and I really dislike the headstock. That being said, I had two options for this guitar, sell it for 100$ (not worth much more than that) or use the body to a science project... What I have in mind, would be filling the trem cavity and single coil cavity, thus converting it to a fixed bridge (maybe string through) with two humbuckers. As to the neck I was considering buying a custom neck from Warmoth or something like that. Put in some EMG's (probably 81 bridge and 60 neck), some good locking tuners and I should get a mean machine. Is this doable? Is the body even worth the trouble? Thanks!
