    Opening myself up to a possible lynching, I suggest d) none of the above. Wait for something that you really want instead of the JP6 (not as good as what you already own) and the Majesty (shape,...

    Mine are set to factory height and I've only adjusted the pickup height to suit.

    I agree with your thought of taking it to a tech to have the frets looked at. Maybe the guitars need a fret level...

    When I found a great Levy's strap at a local shop, I scoured the internet to find another of the same style. I, too, had more straps than guitars at the time.

    I have a Pro Track in my parts bin. With 250k pots, it was more midrange-y than I like and would sound better (IMO) with at least one 500k pot in the circuit. Mind you, I didn't fart around with the...

    I have had the same experience comparing my Silhouette Special HSS with previous Strats. You may have to consider what you use more; the bridge pickup or the 4 other positions.

    Like others have stated, it is possible with the proper templates, tools, skills etc. I guess you'd be looking at $80/hr ballpark to have a professional guitar repair shop do it.

    Definitely less...

    I would steer you away from the Silhouette models if you find the Luke necks too small. This process may be successful through process of elimination.

    Looks like your selected options include Floyds and a standard trem bridge. What is your preference between the two bridge types? Neck profiles? Modding?

    Ensure the paint shop can give you the colour you want and ask to see samples of their work.

    If you bond with a Suhr, buy a different Suhr.

    Reverb shows a few late 90s w/tremolo or Floyd Rose in the 1400 to 2000 range (sold items). In general, tremolo guitars seem to be more in demand and sell for higher (depending on condition etc).

    Reverb shows the JP6s at $1500 - $2000 USD historically. That information doesn’t give the model year or general condition, though should be enough to give you a ballpark amount.
