My 2st Stealth is at my guitar Tech's shop right now, I just ordered the L500XL Bill Lawrence Bridge pickup yesterday and I'm in the process of figuring out the nut size and string spacing at the nut for the Original Floyd Rose(& OFR nut)that I will be ordering soon, the nut size is easy just measure right, but whats confusing is the string spacing, narrow or wide spacing? I need to know! I want my Original Floyd Rose-es nut string spacing to be the same as the Licensed Floyd Rose-es nut string spacing!

I'll figure it out I guess...

Once the customization is complete there shall be PRON!!!(pictures)

Here is another before picture of my 2ST


ITS PanterA' BABY!

Good news! I just ordered the Original Floyd Rose(in black), it should be here in a week or so and the Dime L500XL Bill Lawrence Bridge pickup should be here soon, the customization is coming along nicely, I'll keep updating you guys on the progress & don't worry I won't forget to post pictures once its done.

Thanks for all the positive feedback

Bradley Brunette...

Looks like it's got a Bill Lawrence USA pickup, not a Bill+Becky. Nice guitar though.

Nice, but look at the headstock. It have some awful bubbles in the paint with an opaque black color???
