    Default Saw the Frankenstrat and case last night

    A buddy of mine is a guitar collector. Last night he met me to show off the new Fender Frankenstrat. We were both amazed at the level of detail and preciseness. He may actually buy one soon.

    Here are some pics:

    Your buddy looks like he has a nice guitar collection. And WAY too much disposable income.

    That SG in the corner is nice. I want one of those so bad.

    I'm gonna move this to the Guitar Room, where it should get more discussion.

    Thanks for the move. Makes sense.

    To clarify, the guitars on the wall don't belong to my buddy. He does, however, have a spectacular collection of vintage-only guitars. He's opening a store here in Chicago in a few weeks that specializes in such.

    P.S. Here's a link to "Lefty" Dave playing the Frankenstrat.

    I had to go to the Fountain Valley, CA local Guitar Center today for some misc stuff and to see if I could snag a used box to ship a guitar I just sold and they had one there. Looking at it close up, that particular one was I'd say maybe 90% close to the actual guitar. I've actually seen a copy done by a private guitar maker that was more dead on than this one. The big weak point was the neck which didn't look as much worn as simply having gray graphite or something similar rubbed into the entire neck and headstock. The body and especially the pickups and exposed wiring looked pretty authentic both overall, it looked like something mass produced.

    T.B.
