    Default My Frankenstrat..IT'S ALIVE

    Well...new to this place, so what better way to introduce myself then with my latest project. i got back into VH then the new tour got underway and it gave me the idea to make my own legend guitar basicaly. Took a while to get all the parts, but now she's done.

    Right now gathering parts for another one, but with the kramer neck on this one..

    Hope you guys like it.

    Great stuff! What pickup did you use? How much do you have invested in her if you don't mind me asking? I bet it ain't anywhere near 25 large. Can we get some clips?

    Hey there. the pick-up is a Gibson Paf 59 replica like Ed used. i did'nt want to put that new high output stuff, does'nt sound true to the early stuff.

    as for parts, hum, between 1000$ and 1100$..i did'nt add up all the little details for an accurate some realy.

    I can't do clips, i don't have anything to record unfortunaly. I might try to film a friend playing it next week.

    That guitar looks GREAT! I agree with you about "Tone". A lot of people think the high output stuff gives you that Brown Sound but it does just the opposite.. I bet your guitar has a lot of PUNCH in the tone! Great job.

    yes, the Gibson PAF 59 replica, hand wonded, was a TOTAL suprise how incredible it sounds. it was well worth the investment.

    KNE body that i routed to be more precise, and custom ordered neck from Musikfraft. these guys make the neck i've used so far. birdeye is just incredible. not cheap..but if you want quality...they are IT. the neck is one of the most important part of a guitar, no point spending all that time and money on a replica to put a cheap MightyMite neck on it realy..
