    Default "EVH Rude" Project

    I'm still waiting for some parts to arrive in order that I can complete my "Black and White Franky" project, but in the mean time, I figured I would start work on another favorite of mine, the rarely replicated "EVH Rude".


    I got an alder body from Mitch at KNE (the real one was mahogany and was 2inches thick!)...


    ...painted it black and taped up the front.


    I then "masked off" the back to achieve the "negative" image...


    More comiing soon.

    Looks cool. I always liked that paint scheme on that guitar.

    Can you tell me why it's called "rude" ? I never heard that before...
    If cleanliness were next to Godliness, then that would make you the devil...(CLUTCH)...

    Because of what's written in the neck pocket...

    Rudy Leiren (Ed's guitar tech from high school thru the 80's) built that guitar for Ed. I believe they both worked and painted it. So, that's why you see, "Rudy" on the guitar neck slot. It is a really cool looking guitar and good job on the replica!

    Just FYI.

    Looks great jimi!

    Did you use some sort of vinyl masking kit for the graphics?
    I may be wrong, but that doesn't look like tape.
