    So I got bored the other day and blagged another LTD Viper from a cashconverters for £100, I've decided I'm gonna try and make budget version of the Volsung LTD (Lars Frederickson sig) any ideas on good parts to keep it below £400? I figured possibly Irongears for pickups but locking tuners on a budget? May need to go second hand..

    For everyone else who was lost, I present the ESP LTD Volsung. It has been extraordinarily difficult to find information about the pickups, let alone hear them demonstrated with an amp which I know well; I wish I could help.

    UPDATE 1:
    Have got almost all GraphTech parts, got a ResoMax bridge with String-Saver saddles and the Auto-Lock Tailpiece,
    Ratio tuners with mounting plates and a black TUSQ nut.
    NOT Affliated with GraphTech At All :D:D:D
