    Default My Unchained is DONE!!!

    Hey Gang!
    A few know I've been working on this project since 2004. Let me tell you, it was a pain in the arse, but its done. A few years back (2004), when Charvel launched the EVH art series guitars, I liked that you could buy one from the store painted like Eddies' yellow/black, red/white/black, or the white/black, BUT I didn't think the price was right. Furthermore, I really feel that they SKIPPED on a few opportunities to make the OTHER models he had and woulda been AWESOME to see marketed. That inspired me to make a call to Warmoth and make a replica myself. If you have seen the old Van Halen-"Unchained" video that MTV used to show on Headbangers ball, that is the guitar I modeled this one off of (here's a link to see it: ).

    Anyways, without FURTHER adieu...MY UNCHAINED!!!!



















    The neckplate in itself is something cool to see-here I try to show it off...


    Thanks for looking! -Red43j
    Eddie must think I'm a BOZO to want to drop THAT much on one of his new Charvel Guitars!

    Very, very cool! Just curious and obviously you don't have to answer, but what do you have in it? I've wanted a replica forever but when I look into it is seems very expensive and time consuming to build, yet I'm sure it is rewarding to come out with this beauty! I checked with wormoth and frankenstraat etc and just the body and neck will set you back, not to mention the pickup, floyd and other hardware! Do you build em or do you know someone who could build a kramar style 1984?

    Way cool. What pickup ya got in there? How about the specs of the guitar. I'm thinking of putting together a Warmoth guitar...what kind of wood, frets, neck etc? Definitely an interesting guitar to copy rather than the usual Frankie replica.

    I really can't believe the quality of replicas I see around here. Some of you guys have incredible talent/craftmanship. Awesome stuff.

    That is crazy impressive. I could never look at that guitar and not think of Oakland '81. Clutch work man.
