    Default FRANKENSTRAT !!!

    Here is a beautiful strat I have for sale. I contacted Brett to see if this is okay and I haven't heard back. Hopefully no one would consider this ad a threat but more rather a privilege. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...328691415&rd=1

    Nice! There is already a "For Sale" thread in this guitar forum, though.

    Wasn't the original VH1 guitar made from a Fender?
    Also, it's my understanding that Fender has bought out Charvel.
    Having said that, what brand of EVH replica WOULD you consider?

    VH RightNow talked about the typical (well not so typical now) Fender 3 pickups configuration.
    And...the VHI guitar had a Boogie Bodies body and temporarily had a Fender with big headstock neck.
    For a sweet 5150 replica I'd go with a Kramer 1984, they had some made with a sealer coat that makes it easier to stripe and paint over the existing coat.
    For a Frankenstrat/VHI/VHII replica that'd be Warmoth or different parts on Ebay if you're on a tighter budget.

    Thanks for the clarification, and I stand corrected.
    But still ... the Boogie Bodies body was in fact an aftermarket replacement for a Fender, no?

    Regardless ... nice job on the paint.

    Default They were Charvels..

    The VHI body was made by Wayne Charvel and the neck was Boogie Bodies..a company that Wayne had a large hand in getting started.
    The Black and Yellow VHII was indeed a Charvel..as well..an inhouse Charvel mfg. of what Charvel mfg was in those days..possibly using a Lynn Ellsworth neck..

    Boogie bodies guitars was started by Wayne Charvel's influence and friendship with Lynn Ellsworth..without Wayne Charvel there never would have been a Boogie Bodies guitar maker nor Jackson guitars..Plus Dave
    Schecter and Wayne Charvel were the initial after market higher wood quality bodies and neck builders and suppliers.. starting in the mid 70s

    Those EVH guitars were more Charvel than anything..and neither were a real serialized boogie bodies guitar..

    They were Charvels..

    No I didnít not say that.....its an awesome looking guitar, all I am saying is that that type of fender does not look "right" to me........ed has a stripped les paul with a whammy bar that can be seen in a few photos.....that is another guitar that does not look "right" to me.....just personal opinion thatís all.....
