    Default EVH Art Series Charvel Question

    The White and black 1st Frankie. Whats under the pick guard? Is it routed like the original? If you removed the pickguard, slapped some tape on it and painted it red could you make it look like the 25k Frankie replica? Just wondering cause that would be kinda cool if the pickguard was there for a reason other than looks ??

    I think it's the same body as the other EVH art series models, just with a pickguard on it.
    Be ready for my new amp "III OSIS" produced by H^3 in stores soon [that was funny in 2006]

    The small stripes are painted on, so it wouldn't be perfect if you did!
    Just make one, it would still cost less that a EVH Art!

    It has the bridge pick-up cavity and the top-mounted control cavity only...
    no middle or neck p/u route.

    Your better off getting a Kramer 1984... Better guitar for 1/2 the price.

    I have a great replical Mitch made me of the kramer 5150, i love playing it, I did swap out his original pup for a Duncan custom, but I opted for the hard tail spacing like Ed's original and angled it a bit sounds great.

    Thanks to all for the reply's i'm not intending to buy the charvel and make a frankie I was just wondering how true to the original it was. BTW Eddie played a new Art Series Chavel last night with a pick guard on it, can't remeber the tune, the guitar was a black body black pick guard, had a touch of red with white stripes.
