    Nice job relic'ing.

    I did notice your strings look "out of whack" though.
    Looks like you either need to re-align your neck or maybe your trem needs to be re-centered.

    Also ... looks like a standard strat style neck plate.
    Is there any reason you chose to use that over the more narrow Kramer style plate?

    And what gauge strings are you using that require 3 trem springs?

    btw ... you may want to be more careful advertising the sale of unauthorized EVH replicas on webistes like this.

    Yeah, could just be the angle ... especially if the action's high.
    Nice job.

    Looks good.
    Real good.
    Right on the edge of over relic. But not there.
    Sucks they dont use brass fine tuners anymore.
    Put a monster brass block on that bitch.
    If you dont have to, keep 'er.
    I think one of those may be next for "the wall".
    Findin the time is gonna be rough.

    Nope. Just two.
    He used "8s".
    Three springs would slap the Floyd like thunder.
