I think this is a pretty cool idea for us modding type guys. Why buy a guitar equipped with pickups, hardware, and electronics that you're probably going to swap anyway? This way you can have it how you want from the very start and only pay for what you're going to use. I could see myself going this route one day.

Gotta say though "future tribute" is possibly the dumbest name for a guitar I've ever heard, that doesn't even make sense lol, anyway not knocking the guitar it looks sweet!

Agree, the "Future" truss rod cover was the first think i swapped. The thing which is why I wanted this exact model is that its have 60's slim taper neck, which I really love..

I like the less cluttered look of no binding, oddly though, they look naked to me without a PG. Go figure..

Your guitar is really attractive without any excess decoration. The model name, "Future Tribute," could note be any more ridiculous, but who cates. What a really nice, straightforward guitar!

Beautiful! I also have a Future and would like to switch the original dome knobs for another set i have however i'm concerned about how to remove the dome knobs since they don't have the usual side screw. Can you please tell me how you removed yours?
