    Frankenstrat guitar

    So Eddie Van Halen is the reason I play guitar. Well I don't want to play some gay stupid guitar. I want to play the best looking and sounding guitar ever created the Frankenstrat! Or atleast a replica of it. Here is the replica I made a few months ago.

        I dig it. What's the story? Where'd you cobble together the bits and pieces?

          He just turned 16.

          His Dad (Dickhead) is the one that helped me build my buggy. He is an incredible fabricator, and has the patience and attention to detail that I don't have.

          This kid is trying to get every detail right on this guitar. He has been busting his ass on it for awhile. He has done it, and redone it, several times. Improving it every time.

          I'm going to let him do my Kramer replica. I"m not going for the relic look though.

            It was originally a crappy franky I painted kit guitar. So I bought it for $200 and painted it. Then a few months ago repainted it an added a real Floyd Rose. Going to ge right reflectors and EVH pickup soon. As well as Shaller tuners. I actually am possibly going to re paint it again because two stripe are slightly off. As for Von's guitar I'm doing that as soon as he brings it over.

                So what's the final tab on a project like this? I have an interest in doing something similar (god knows I love frankenstriping shit) but I'm also an eternal cheapskate. I seem to recall a similar thread a while back but I don't recall the builder.

                          Another one of those classic genius posts, sure to generate responses. You log on the next day to see what your witty gem has produced to find no one gets it and 2 knotheads want to stick their dicks in it... Well played, sir!!

                              In my crappy one with in correct parts right now about $300 has been put into this guitar. When I'm done it will be about $500. I sell replicas for like $900. There's this one guy that I'm building one for now. Frankenstriping everything I can. It's like smoking... Once you start it's hard to quit.
