I'd be interested for videos to be added that go into "how to" on guitar modifications. Like for example I'm aware that pickup heights can be adjusted and even changed and would like to see how this is done. Or how the bridge area that holds the strings can be modified and how the whammy bar lock things inside the guitar can be changed,

Or maybe a project series where you start with a bare wooden electric guitar body and make a custom guitar from different bits and pieces.

I think that's a great idea - but we would need an instructor who knows this stuff ... (heh, maybe Marcus - he built his own guitar!)

This is a very good idea! also things like changing the action height of the strings would be great as well. Possibly a lesson on proper maintenance of your guitar, ie cleaning, etc

This is a excellent Idea, I think Marcus or Pavel would be good at this type of thing.

only problem with this would be alot of guitars have very different setups

different bridges, pickups, etc..

but i still agree it would be a good idea

id love to see a lesson on how to properly setup a floyd rose when changing string gauge and how to set the correct intonation

Yeah, I would like to see how to set the intonation on a Floyd. Getting a Allen wrench under the string at th bridge without breaking some has got to be a trick.
