    Hain, he's been doing it for years. What's the problem? Lots of us own Mean Street guitars.

    really? some of ya'll own em'? are they good?

    did you all just get em' "plain" or did you get em' painted?


    hell, it looks like the same thing Eddie's selling for 25k minus the paint but they can put that on there too.

    I bought an Unchained model 3 or 4 years ago. It was yellow. I sanded all the paint off and striped it.

    It's a nice playing guitar for the price, I got rid of the cheap Floyd and put a real OFR on mine. I don't play it that much, I built it mostly for show.

    Pretty much stock, it's all right. If I was playing this thing as a normal guitar, I'd swap it out for a Duncan. But it never leaves my office, so it's not really necessary for me.

    I've never played one, but MS guitars do pop up on eBay from time to time. I've noticed most people who own one give about the same review: "It's good for the money."

    Yep. For me though, I am not the best judge, like I said, I don't play mine a lot...mostly for show.

    I'm looking for something I might want to play "out".

    Something at MOST 800$

    that 78 Legend is cool for obvious reasons(if i got that I'd get in black) but I don't want people hazing me if i was playing it live somewhere

    those Exile and Intruders look pretty nice.

    getting something like this would have to go past the wife and with daycare mortgage, car payment and already a sump pump backup kit on the credit card, I'm sure she'd try to give me a spending range of $200 LOL

    "why can't you buy a guitar for $100? I don't understand?"-my wife

    if you really want kick ass hand built parts or a non-painted tribute to Frankie, etc...try

    www.divebombinc.com

    The guys name is Kyle and he makes amazing stuff. Remember it's not painted but man are those guitars great.

    Enjoy!

    And of course Kyle's been posting here semi-frequently now. I'd like to buy some parts from him in the future.

    I just bought a trans purple Axis off eBay last week (see the 'Gear Pics' thread), and I spent just a little more than $800. (It was a total SCORE.) With patience, you can find something like that, which is both original and top-notch, and not be buying an "okay" imitation like the Mean Street (IMHO).

    I saw the picture of your Axis in the other thread.. looks nice

    yeah.. thinking about it the 78 guitar would be nice from that site but maybe not so much the clone Wolfgang. I did see a Wolfgang Special on ebay that was dinged up but from looking around and asking the big guy here those are cheapies..

    I just know that my wife would have a heart attack if I tried to spend 1500 or more on a guitar.

    Dude, a USA Wolfgang Special (not the import EXP quilt top) is made with the same level of quality as any of the USA Wolfgangs. They're top-notch. If you want an EVH style guitar for under $800, that'd be a good way to go.

    Unlike a brand like Gibson, that sacrifices quality in parts and craftsmanship on their cheaper lines, Peavey made all the Wolfgangs equal. The only difference were the "fancy" aspects: binding, figured woods, Schaller tuners (hardly important on a locking nut guitar), and headstock tilt.
