What kind of clone? What's a "lock neck"?

a good idea as far as?

If you have a set of gibson pups laying around, sure, why not? Easy enough to pull them later.

Sorry, I don't know what you mean when you say lockneck?

sorry a lock neck is a locking bridge so you dont have to tune often and i use light strings so it comes out often..

its a japenese clone.. "northern" distributed in the 70s in canada.. i believe fugi gen gakki is the company..

are you talking about a TonePros bridge?

Unless you have the parts laying around, I can't see investing that kind of money in a no-name brand guitar.

I might check on the value of that axe. Might be higher than you think.

If you enjoy the guitar, why not? You can always take the upgrade parts with you to another guitar, if you choose get another.
