    Default There's no substitute for red! Franky project now in red!

    Hey guys, just got it in red last night. Used "Doopy" Super Red II. I know it looks too clean still, but it's gettin' there. The co-worker who's getting it thinks it looks great, which is what it's all about. So, it turned out to be a great way to learn aging techniques. Let me know what you think, good or bad.

    I don't think I'll ever get sick of looking at Franky's...

    Thanks for positive responses! The neck I got is from Musikraft. I ordered it just before they started offering the "Franky" neck, but it has the tele heel & everything. Thanks again for everyone's help and ideas. The red stripe tape job really stressed my ass!

    Looks great. Paint job looks very clean. B4 you finish just adding a point. I'm not a builder so people can correct me if I'm wrong. You painted everything and then are relcing?

    Doesn't the original still have some tape on it along with it's striped painted pattern? Some of the stripes and stuff on the original is tape? Thought for accuracy would be cool to mimic that effect. Thought that was the case.

    It's not lame without it. Just a little point to toss out there to consider b4 it's done..since you're relcing it and all.

    Ron and Jim would know.

    I relic'd the black and white 1st, there's still plenty of relic work that needs to be done on it, scratches, drill holes, puncture marks, and gouges, pick up cavities, etc. Also needs to be knocked down with some steel wool. I think the actual tape that was on the guitar, was pinstriping tape on the original black and white, which was removed before it went red.

    While I don't know exactly where it is on Franky- there was some tape left on the guitar while it was being painted red and stayed on. I think that's what is being said about the tape. I could be wrong, and I proclaim ZERO expertise in the world of VH replicas.

    That being said- it is looking pretty sharp!!!
