    guys im planning to tell one of my relatives to get me a good brands licensed Floyd Rose Bridge and a seymour Duncan pickup set (Sh4 and Sh2N)
    i am planning to hand them over to the person at Tulsi to make me a custom guitar..
    How much will it work out to?? and is the idea feasible??Will the tulsi guy agree?
    any advice appreciated..

    I would say you are quite lucky to be getting the components beforehand.I upgraded my pickups much later.Tulasi will put in whatever you want him to, but he will definitely comment that his pickups are as good as a SD or DMZ:p:
    JB and Jazz would be sweet. With good pickups, the Tulasi will be best in class for a total cost of under 20K(though your Floyd might make it costlier).The pickups and Floyd alone would cost you around 12K.I say, get your switches and pots from there too.Any later upgrades will set you back by a few hundred bucks extra as repair cost.
    What are your guitar specs and what type of sound are you looking for?

    need a lil help there man..
    im actually getting a licensed floyd rose bridge and the dual humbucker pickup set from the US,. im gonna give it to the tulsi guy to make me my guitar..
    Im looking at a natural sunburst type finish explorer style body with a reverse headstock..
    Does he deal in neck thru designs?
    will it work out to 8k on the tulsi side?

    He will do the neck-thru and sunburst easily, but I doubt if it will be done for 8K as I hear he has raised his prices.Why dont you send in your specs and ask him for a quote?

    he sure has increased his prices

    my brother's beast copy - HSH + FR licensed + active electronics cost him 13k + a little

    i requested a washburn idol copy - HH + fixed bridge and he quoted 15k

    Man..my PRS copy with tune-o-matic came for 9K total.Even with my new DImarzio pickups the total value is about 15K-16K.

    Yup, since you are giving pickups and bridge it should be lesser, but still the rate hike will make it around 10K I guess..as I said ask him, only he can tell you exactly, no use speculating in this thread.

    Good to see another Explorer fan here :beer:. I got mine done by Tulsi for 9K. Although, as nebu said, I think he has increased his prices.
