Yep the BR600 is ideal, got one for xmas. Plenty of built in effects so you don't even need to DI your amp or run FX pedals, bass sims and drum patches. I have recorded whole songs (badly) then plug in a mic for vox, oh it has lots of vox FX too so you can add reverb. I record a riff, add second gui...

I worked as tech for a very picky guy once, all strings had to be cut a knuckle and a half from the peg this gives about 3-4 wraps around the peg when winding. For my own guitars I cut halfway to the next peg, but as I have the custom edition with the floyd rose it only needs a couple of wrap arounds.

nitro/poly?

Just one of the tips I've picked up from all the collective wisdom here,
get a UV security pen thing they usually come with a small torch to read the invisibe ink, you can use the black light to determine what varnish it is.
Very nice looking guitar.

As you're in UK try screwfix, or if you're near a market any good hardware stall (or shop) will be able to sort you out with a good screw. Knew someone would eventually slip.
Maybe try one of the better guitar shops one that deals second hand you never know what they have lying about.

Hmm in todays market it realy could be up to the buyer to dictate the price. I paid ?100 for my custom edition but that was a long time ago (15 years) try looking at similar guitars in 2nd hand shops.

Not 100% sure what wood is used, guessing by the weight, alder also its a very blonde wood (where I knocked the paint off) a shade or so lighter than the maple neck. There's a just visible seam on the back I'm guessing a 2 piece body but it feels very solid.
