    Fender made the replica way too pretty.
    Here's the Fender:

    Here's the original:

    The difference is a rockstar painted one and a bunch of suits painted the other.

    By the way... my site got hacked last week and was taken down, but I'm working to get it back up and vastly improved by Monday.

    Here's a sample of what I'm doing with the site. I've added modules for things like necks and bodies that have options for the customer. This makes ordering with exact specs very easy.

    Looks great Kyle. It's nice to have sole control of your own site. It takes quite a bit more work, but like we briefly spoke about, it's more secure.

    Do you make pick ups close to what the PV Wolfgang had? I'd like to get my hands on those.

    Yeah, it's funny when you read comment from people who make the replica's and state how clean and sharp the lines are... As you have pointed out, the real franky wasn't fussed over when Ed did it. I bet he knocked the whole paint job out in less than a day. He's always referred to it as a piece of shit. Its funny how much time and money we all put into replicating it...
    If you have nothing nice to say about Eddie Van Halen, you're at the right website. - Me (A few years ago)

    "People take Van Halen much more seriously than we do" - David Lee Roth (1980's)

    "I don't sit on the end of your bed while you're trying to make a living" - David Lee Roth (1988)

    "For some reason people love to complain about everything. The internet has made it easy for people to do that. Shut the fuck up and get a life, or show me how good you can do it."- Edward Van Halen

    "A lot of people ask me which Van Halen singer was better. You can't compare them. It's like asking which guitarist is better. Nobody is better than anybody. Every player is their own person."-Edward Van Halen

    "I do like Eddie Van Halen as a player. He gets it right quite often." -Paul McCartney

    I tell people that buy my kits not to work too hard at making it pretty.
    My custom winds are around $100, but I can do any specs you want. $79.99 sounds pretty good.
    I'm not showing any more than 2" of my original image.

    That is such a dick comment. Who are you to criticize another builder on here who is actually trying his best to duplicate the original frankie the best he can?

    I wouldn't buy shit from you al3d...you take pot shots for no reason at people and claim you don't mean anything...perhaps it's a language thing with you...but I personally would like to see you stop posting crap about other builders.

    Focus on yourself and your own crappy replicas.

    Honestly, Lefty, I think that Alain's comment was "lost in translation"... I really don't think he meant any offense. JMO.
