Great-looking replicas, seriously. Did you have guitar tech assemble them for you? Is it inappropriate to ask how much each of them ended up costing (minus the "wrong" necks)?

Here are a couple shots of my two completed Schecter replicas, with a third (the red 'strat') currently in the works. Both 'strats' have taken a lot of time as I rejected numerous necks for each. All three custom necks are as close to the MK Signature Strat dimensions as can be reasonably obtained. But it took five custom orders to find two that had enough figuring to the grain for my liking! But, the best things in life are worth waiting for! Now if only I could play them half as beautifully as calojer and quizzaciously!!!


Thats incredible, i live in The Netherlands and there's one company on the other side of the country that makes custom guitars and they can build Dream Machines too.

Anyway, i'm probably getting a Dream Machine built next year. I really want the sunburst with F500-T's but i am afraid the F500-T's will be too dark sounding for my personal liking. And if that is in fact the case i cant swap them out for any other pickups, because those are just the pickups that belong to that guitar.

On the other hand, if i let them build the Candy Apple Red Dream Machine for me i can just let them build it with Ingo's F500-T (white aluminium) pickguard and if i dont like them i can easily swap the pickguard with Ingo's (white aluminium) VFS-1 pickguard.

So building the red one is probably a better option but i like the sunburst waaay more  :-\

What's your opinion on the F500-T's? Do they sound (too) dark? And could you maybe upload a clip of you playing it so i can hear the guitar's sound?
I sadly have nobody in my area that has a guitar with F500's.

At last, the company here in The Netherlands asks around 2000 euro's for a Dream Machine Build. Do you think this is a fair price?
I'll link a picture of a sunburst they built

My friend has a CAR Schecter from the Dallas era, and he installed Ingo's pickguard with the F500T clones. In "full" mode, they sound thick and full, but in tapped mode, they are nice and bright. They sound quite different than regular Strat pickups, but of course you knew that :) Also the metal pickguard changes the sound a bit compared with a regular plastic guard.

I am going to make a replica of the sunburst schecter strat in few weeks.
but i'm gonna keep my fender neck with dots. So it will look like more to the first sunburst schecter strat Mark had, and that was stolen

I think that is a very reasonable price. I have around 2500 USD into each of mine. Each build has taken about a year from start to finish. I source all the hardware from Ingo, If you are really after the true sound and feel, make sure you do the same all the way down to the brass tremolo and the metal trem plate on the back. I have them professionally finished with a nitrocellulose finish, and then professionally assembled and set up.
