A few weeks ago I purchased a Focus 2000 from forum bro @Doc.
I went through it, not that it needed much since it was in great shape to begin with. (thanks Doc!!)

I basically gutted the electronics and replaced the pots with CTS and a switchcraft jack.

Fokin pickups were ordered and installed.
I disassembled the Floyd and cleaned it up nice, nice. Added a D-Tuna and a set of Hollow points as well as a 42mm sustain block.

I took it to my local shop for the final setup.

There is a youtube link at the bottom of my post. Just a short clip of me noodling this afternoon. You can hear them for yourself and tell me what you think.

Looks great!
That one has such a nice neck on it, I'm glad you gave it worthy pups and other upgrades for the total custom package.
Sounds great, too!
Nice work!

Good looking guitar and thumbs up on the upgrades!
P.S. - I'm glad I'm not the only one who can't resist pinch harmonics while I'm noodling! :headbang
