    Default Relic Franky "replica of a replica" done...

    Hello...well this is it. The one I built for my co-worker. All in all, I'm pretty proud of it. I know it's a copy of a copy, but the buyer's cool with it and very happy! The next one, will be based on the real deal, and it will be for me. This one however plays great and sounds great too. (I'm actually not wanting to hand it over just yet...lol.) It's a KnE body, Musikraft neck, and a parts kit from DivebombInc. Used Duplicolor, Super Red II, Acrtic White, and Universal Black. This was a great learning experience, thank you to everyone here in the Guitar Room...without your guys' help, it surely wouldn't have turned out as nice as it did. The coolest thing about it was that my 16 year old son got to play his very 1st show with it...the Bunker Hill, Illinois Fall Festival talent show...hehe. They played Blitzkrieg Bop by The Ramones. It was super-cool to see him having fun playing this guitar in front of a crowd of people. Once again, thanks guys...I'm sure I'll still have plenty of questions for my next build...

    Nice job!
    That must have been an AWSOME experience to watch your son play it in the talent show.

    Thanks again guys, the owner took it home last night. He told me today it plays better than any of the guitars in his collection. (Including his 5150 from Meanstreet.) Now, it's time to make the replica to end all replicas...lol j/k. Once again it's awesome to have the experienced builders here givin' me the thumbs up!
