    Default Another Frankenstein replica

    Hey guys, what better way to introduce myself than with the replica that I've got in the works? I've found a lot of useful information here as I've gotten closer to finishing this thing, so thanks to all of the highly skilled cats who have shared their knowledge!

    I've still got some work to do, including getting the proper screws to permenantly affix the quarter and a little more abuse, but so far, I'm really happy with how it came out. This is my first time doing a replica - and also my first time doing any sort of relicing.

    I used a KNE body, which I modified with a little chiseling, and a Musikraft neck. The neck was from an old San Dimas Charvel clone that I put together - so it's not the perfect neck - but it's perfect for me. I figure Eddie had enough necks on that thing that I can get away with something a little different. The bridge pickup is a Seymour Duncan "Screamin Demon" which I'm really pleased with so far, I think it does the job pretty well.
