    Default The EVH Tribute Guitar

    Since, to me, the replica thing is gettin old, I had to do somethin different.
    This is part of my Tribute Series. My own copyrighted design.
    This is the first prototype. Couple finish issues, but nothin I cant fix.
    Now I just need Fender or Charvel to call.
    I flopped a Dimarzio Tone Zone in it cause I had one in the drawer. The bitch wails. Mounted it Dino style.
    Lets hear the input guys. Any ideas for improvement?
    I know. I use a couple of pictures twice.

    Man, that thing is COOL! I like the idea.

    The only thing I'd say is lose the pickup ring.

    Yeah. Enough to sand out to make it smooth. Just like any other guitar finish.
    The pup ring is actually a "false" ring. The pup mounting screws are cut and glued on. I just was thinking a classy look. But Im still on the fence.

    That's a cool idea. Could be done. I've tried to cover the whole thing in pics, but I cant get a uniform application. Bending pictures around a gradual 90% is real tough. I try and do the Tributes with the guitar that the star is known for. It would have a better look if it were, to say, and Idanez or BC Rich. A guitar with serious edges.
    If these were to go into production though, the sides would have to be a uniform color though. Like black. Only cause of Eds copyright.

    Very cool and original idea. Have you seen some of the "comic-finish" bodies on ebay, which seem like a lot of work, too?
