    Default Just finished first EVH Franky Tribute Guitar

    I have never attempted to paint one before, but it was a nice sunday afternoon, so I said "what the hell, i'll try."
    I don't know how to load directly to this site, so if you follow the link, you can check them out. ( and franky nerds be forewarned...she's not an exact replica with 71 rusty and cigarette burns...just a couple of cans and tape.) It was a lotta' fun though!!

    looks nice dude.
    all mine have been tributes so far rather than exact (or attempt at an exact) replica, i think its important to add you own twist on it.
    keep us updated on any more progress

    Thanks for the kind words. Were you guys able to see all 10 images? The guitar is done and complete with photos of ALL stages. Can someone link a finalized photo to this site, so others can see it. Thanks.
