    Default 1981 tour guitars

    I'm sure y'all remember that EVH played two black/white guitars on the Fair Warning tour. One was distinct for the "EVH RUDE" inscription in the neck pocket and the other one featured circles on the front and "BYE LATER SEE YA" in red on the back. Anyway, thanks to the incomparable Jerry Lica who painted both bodies, I just finished assembling these two replicas.

    Both guitars have tung-oiled Warmoth necks (pau ferro fretboard on the "RUDE"), Gotoh tuners, and cleaned-up 1980s Floyd Roses. The "RUDE" guitar has a DiMarzio PAF - the "BYE LATER SEE YA" guitar has a Smit's Brown Sound. And they play as good as they look - thanks Jerry!

    Next up is a "Rasta" replica. I used to enjoy painting, too, but condo life makes that difficult. Anyway, just thought I'd share and give props to my man Jerry. I believe Rol is familiar with his work.

    Thanks for looking.
