Thanks for the advice. Talked to a luthier and I'm going to have the last 7 done. I'm not going to sit here and act like some badass shredder, but I was really into it when I tried it and I can use all the help I can get when I'm in that area of the neck (help purely because I prefered the feel). I always play rythm when we jam but I've started getting into some small leads. Just love teh brootz riffs.
