    Looks cool , the black headstock gives it that VHII tour era look . What pickup have you got in it ?
    You may think I`m being mean but I`m really just being sarcastic

    I came across one a couple of months back
    the wiring was horrible(I rewired it) and I am not really happy with the pickup so I have a custom-custom on order to replace the current one. It plays extremely well though just the sound quality needs to improve.

    There are some pictures of it on this web page

    Okay, here's the scoop:
    I wish I could say I did it myself, but alas I didn't.
    I got it from a guy in Canada who had it made from scratch - even had a violin maker cut the wood for the body. The neck is bird's eye maple Mighty Mite. The pick-up is a Duncan '59. The Floyd is original. The paint job is almost entirely accurate, even to the point that it's "less than factory quality" (i.e. it looks like Ed painted it with a schwin can of paint). It plays and sounds great.

    The collection is as follows left to right in the picture:
    1) Blue Ovation C257 (can barely see just a smidge of it in the lower left corner)
    2) New Franky
    3) Black '83 Kramer Pacer Imperial (neck replaced with a Warmoth;
    4) Black Jackson USA Shannon Soloist (gold hardware)
    5) Purple flame top Peavey Wolfgang;
    6) Black '81 Gibson Les Paul Custom
    7) Sunburst 1985 Fender Strat '57 reissue
    8) Amber flame Jackson USA Archtop Soloist;
    9) Black & Yellow EVH II made by GMW from USA Charvel parts;
    10)Amber quilt EB/MM Axis
    11) (not shown) Yamaha bass
    12) (not shown) Applause acoustic
    plus various pieces and parts
    Also not shown is the '75 Marshall 100 watt superlead and 4X12 cab, the Fender Blues junior, and various pedals and effects processors.

    Almost forgot... Thanks for the complements.

    I don't know about Canada, but I do know that ESP in Japan makes franky and 5150 reliced copies, and there are at least 2 companies that advertise there quite frequently, also they are for sell on ebay Japan and Yahoo Japan but hold on to your wallets they are well over $2000 us dollars new .
    so it seems that only the US builders were hit
    with threats, now I don't know if it's because they don't care, don't know or don't have any legal position in other countries.
