That would do it. The older Eclipses have the Les Paul style knob configuration, so you have room for a pickguard. Newer models have three knobs farther forward. I rewired one of them to a pickup selector switch. ......MORE »
Thanks. The guitar finish is factory, I only had to refinish the cross. It has the same faux distressing on the back too, so I didnt bother messing with it.
The last story I read here about the LTD Iron......MORE »
IMO the the Iron Cross looks really cool, but the Snakebyte is the most comfortable guitar I've ever played. The shape, the weight, the balance, the action, it just feels perfect. Like it was made for me. And mine is ony......MORE »
Since we never got that black and gold LTD Iron Cross, I made one to go with my white one. I had an aged vintage black EC-256 already that I rewired the switches and added a Truckster LTD headstock emblem, so I added......MORE »
That is fantastic! Who did the inlay work?
What happened to Bill anyway? One day I was talking to him on the phone about doing a Mummy for me and the next I heard he had died?! Sudden and unexpected!?

Hey Professor, I was looking at a similar rail system by string swing and thought it looked like the guitars would hang quite a ways out on a pretty small piece of steel. Now that I look at yours again it looks pretty......MORE »
Its insane that eBay allows counterfeit items to be sold. If you make a guitar that looks like another guitar, it's a replica. Copying a brand name and serial number makes it counterfeit. I'm sure it would be a different......MORE »
Lol, ok well keep saving those pennies. Pretty sure the MX'S will always be beyond my reach of what I can realistically spend on one guitar. So I gotta go with the next best thing. Plus I have the black one and would really......MORE »
I love the aged patina look. Snow White is too bright. After reading this thread, I'm going to get a spotlight for my white Iron Cross! Here's my LTD EXP vs a newer Epiphone '84 Explorer I used to have.
