    Hi Abhay....

    Custom guitars are available her in Bangalore and one place in Chennai.. You will have to give some knid of specifications to get your self Custom guitars... So TULSI in Chennai make the BEST custom guitars in India.. So head up there and see what you can find.. Look at my BASS Guitar in the Post YOur Guitar Picture thread.. Thats a TULSI CUSTOM BASS..

    Basic cost of custom Guitars 6000-8300 + If you want change of pickups, you will have to pay the difference. and same if you want Floyd rose..

    Yeah... Mumbai or Pune...

    Jayanth, how much does adding both Floyd Rose and say Seymour Duncans or D'Marzio i.e. good distortion pickups cost all together? Do these guitars match say epiphones? Even closely? What about the kind of wood and stuff they use? I have a givson electric and lets just say I don't wanna spend 12-13k and get another cheap ass guitar.

    THese guitars if made well.. Made well i mean by the configurations can match Epis.. You can choose anyof the hardware and wood and stuff..

    I would not go for a custom made in mumbai or pune because skilled ones are here in chennai.. (Known Internationally: They made a guitar for Pt. Ravi Shankar's Best Friend Paul) I can give you much more details after i go to chennai during the weekend.. about the floyd rose and the pickups, it depends on what kind of pickups you wanna use. What style of music you play and what tone yoiu want. Check out D'Marzio's website. THey have amazind detail..

    I'm looking for a metal guitar, with any descent pups... EMG/Duncan/D'Marzio sounds good. And I'm guess I want the SG or Explorer shape, the best wood possible for about 15k.. I'm looking for the typical Metallica earlier albums(kill 'em all) sound.

    tulsi is best

    hi abhay..
    I got a custom made floyd rose guitar from tulsi..
    Thats the best guitar i have ever had.
    The feel of the guitar is really good..
    I have played on fender, ibanez, gibson..
    but nothing the match the feel on my custom made..
    It cost me 11.5 k with the floyd rose.
    it will cost u 2- 3 k less without it..

    Tulsi is down at Chennai.
    He maintains a very low profile shop, but the quality of his work is real coool..
    He gets his stuff from taiwan i guess. all imported pickups and circuit..

    My guitar sounds and feels real good.

    My frend had a bass guitar made from him.. with active circuit.
    I have played mustang and other basses. but never one like this.

    If u r lookin to get a custom made guitar..
    tulsi is the ultimate choice..
