    Default Original Spec VHI Guitar

    YMI5150 did the paint, but I made the body and neck and did the assembly and setup. I have more work to do to it, but it's real close to "done".

    The logo was put on the original neck by Ed to throw another curveball at the people looking on. He later removed it but the sticky stuff got dirty over time and you could see the logo once again.

    Are the skinny stripes painted too or did you go the pinstipe tape route? Either way, it's awesome.

    I pretty much figured you did given your attention to detail, but was just curious. You see so few completely accurate VH 1's out there. Funny in a way, because it's in a much simpler form than the guitar 25+ years on with all the road rash accumulated. Great job guys.

    I worked really hard on the specs of the neck and straight string pull was where I started. I drew the entire guitar in CAD to get the headstock just the way I wanted it accounting for the 1 5/8" nut on a 1 3/4" neck.

    Are you now using a small C&C machine?

    You should defenitively look into a C&C then..they are not the 40 000$ monsters they used to be, and it makes sens for you since you clearly can't keep up with demand has you pointed out yourself more then once, don't take the Frankenstraat road, once you're down in buisness, you stay down unfortunaly.
