    Well First of All .. Welcome to IGT .. hope u will have a blast spending your time here, You will find everything here whatch your looking for starting from understanding guitar tabs to How Professionals Do.
    As far as V shaped guitar is concernd i did the same thing i didn't knew how to play guitar and i bought V shaped straight up and i ending up not to play with it cuz : A : its very hard to handle cuz of its shape if u know what i mean
    : B : You don't wanna spend alot for a newguitar and coundlt handle it the way it should be.
    i bought ma Flying V for $589.77 .. but in ma country " Pakistan " one can get a Flying V for 8 to 9,000 Rs.
    so what i recommend u is to buy a normal jackson or fender or whatever u can get your hands on .. play with it have fun with it learn as much as u can then buy your desired guitar.

    Good to have you here.

    Nebu is in Bangalore now. He has a PRS copy made from Tulasi. I have a Les Paul copy made from Tulasi too :p: . But mine has DiMarzio pickups Norton in the Bridge and PAF Pro in the neck.

    Tulasi Electric Guitar with Non Floyd Rose Bridge and dotted inlays will cost Rs.8500 I guess. Inlays and Floyd Rose charges are extra. I guess the price is the same irrespective of the shape.

    By the way this Flying V, Explorer and stuffs like that are good to look at but not comfortable to play with. A decent strat shape or a super strat shape like Ibanez is the most comfortable to hold and play. More than looks, you need a comfortable guitar to play with.

    @rcmaiden, change the title of your post. It's really stupid to have a title "Hey" when you are asking for a help about your gear.

    No. It's not available with Tulasi. But you can get those inlays from the US and get them fixed in your guitar.

    No idea about Seymour Duncans. I have used Bill Lawrence and DiMarzios. One thing I noticed is all replacement pickups from good companies sound good, have nice clarity. Tonally they differ and liking some tone is totally an individual taste.
    Check out any popular pickup from DiMarzio or Seymour Duncan and it would be nice.

    DiMarzios are nothing less. Just the taste differs. I use this DiMarzio Norton and DiMarzi PAF Pro and these pickups really rock.

    TULSI is good ... and i think his work is good ....BUT ...
    One thing i didnt like much about TULSI .. is he trys to prove what he has is the best ..
    And no idea if he does this to make more sales ..
    He Told me Active pickups are waste .. No use ..... its just a pre amp in the pick up ..
    But this is what it is ...(fact)....
    The preamplifier used inside each EMG Pickup is no ordinary preamp. Built directly into each pickup, the preamp is an integral part of the pickup design assuring quality of sound performance, incredible noise reduction, and simplicity in installation. It provides a variety of benefits for us as the designer and for you as the player. A natural by-product of the preamp is gain. It allows us to design a pickup for its particular tone without concern for the pickup's output. After the coils have been modeled, any amount of output needed is available from the preamp.

    He claimed his pickups are better than Dimarzio ...

    Active pickups are still only onboard Pre-amp. Doesn't give you anything special except that you can drive you amp harder. Infact even the famous EMG 81s and 85s are voiced Flat and have not much tonal variations. Unless you are a guy with multiple guitars for doing a lot of things, relying on popular pickups are a waste. Rather you could go for mroe versatile like Seymour Duncan JB which suits a lot of variety of music. Even the PAF Pro for that matter is pretty versataile. Wait till you play one active pickup and then you will dreams of active pickups will come down.
    You could always use a Clean Boost before your amp to drive even harder which gives you even more control. This active pickups give you some amount of gain which you dont have much control like a special gain knob and level knob and things like that.

    The reason he says that his stuffs are the best is maybe because he's very happy and passionate about his work. Whatever you might say I say that my homebrewed amp which I am using is the best Solid State Amp I have used so far. I keep calling this Marshall MG a toy too if you reckon. So there's nothing to crib about here.
