    Yeah, I know. But I think Rols and 91v8 tend to check out this forum more often. I really want their opinions because of all of the research they have done on Edís guitars ( I think that 91v8 has actually had some hands on experience with many of Edís guitars.)

    That`s not the Frankie guitar. Ed had already put a humbucker in a Strat style guitar (In this case the Fender Strat in the pics) before he built the Frank.

    Yeah, I read that he had put a humbucker in a strat before he built his Frankie, but Iíve seen so many pictures of him playing a black strat at the Whisky (in some pictures, itís still a original 3 pick up configuration) that Iíve wondered if the Frankie really wasnít a boogie bodies guitar, but that same black strat.
    Ed has fibbed plenty of times about what gear he uses, and he has tried to help friends by saying he used their stuff (when he really had not). I wonder if he was just trying to give his friends at Charvel some free advertising.
