    Default ny new frankenstein.

    i got the body for this last july, but it sat for a while collecting dust. recently, my dad and i went and bought a neck and pickup, i got the rest of what we needed for easter, and my friend's dad was able to put it together for us. pretty badass result. bridge pickup is a Duncan custom, neck is a Mighty Mite, and neck pickup is just an old standard fender, from my friends old mexican strat.



    you can see in the next photo that i hooked up the selector switch and the neck pickup, so i can get that awesome Fender neck pickup sound.



    you can also see i enabled the coil splitting function to do stuff like Andy Summers' stuff on this.



    beautiful maple strat neck, which im going to distress over the course of time.



    and the snobby, artsy black and white angle photo.




    i built this guitar as a tribute to EVH, who is my greatest unfluence on guitar, but like he did with the original Frankenstein, i built it with myself in mind. thanks for checking it out!

    Nice job.

    It's cool that you and your dad did this together.
    I'm sure this will be a guitar you hang onto for a very long time.
