    EVH 5150 Frank Replica made by ESP!?

    Has anyone heard of a EVH 5150 Frankenstrat replica that was produced by ESP guitars back in the mid-90's??

    The story is that they were only available in japan for a VERY LIMITED TIME!

    I don't know much about ESP guitars...are they all made in japan or do they have a usa division?

    any info on this would be really appreciated!

    Yeah i remember seeing one on Ebay a while back, at first i thought it was a hoax but it definatly was an ESP, it had the stamp on the back of the neck, but no logo on the front of the headstock. The guy said he did buy it in japan but they were very limited, it was a very nice looking guitar, true to the original. Funny you should mention it.

    Edwards (an ESP subdivision) makes one:


    Alder body, maple neck, original floyd, SD Custom Shop "EVH/78" humbucker, etc...

    It's not exactly a "production" model, more like an under-the-table type of situation. You can order one from any ESP/Edwards dealer (assuming that they would also be willing to ship to you if you reside outside of Japan). This guitar sells for about $900...

    the body looks dead on, even right down to the worn down paint (maybe too worn down) but the headstock looks a little goofy in shape and with the 7th tuner.
