    Well it all started when I saw this nice Trans White Sadowsky on eBay. I REALLY wanted it (hell, I still want it) but I knew I couldn't spend that much cash right now. Then I saw this:

    I couldn't pass it up!!!!! So I won it & Yesterday I ordered this:

    I was going to get the neck below but I wanted to keep cost low on this project.

    I'm going to put a pair of EMG 40J pickups & an EMG BTS pre-amp & run it @ 18V. I have gold Gotoh Tuners & Schaller roller bridge. All together this project is gonna cost about $500.
