    Default Is this guy for real? Franky pup $1500

    http://cgi.ebay.com/AUTHENTICATED-EV...item335ae54e77

    Made and relic'ed by Eddie himself? If this guy is really in a tough spot that sucks, but god damn. Add $50 for handling?

    Even if it was a pickup handmade by Eddie, the bright red all-caps 400-word sentence would discourage anyone from bidding.

    Anyone that pays that much for a pup unless you needed it to add value to some old vintage ax has really lost there mind.

    So obviously this guy isn't aware that the reliced, signed EVH Franky pickup is still available on guitarcenter.com, etc. for $399...

    LOL! Apparently that fact was not taken into account when he formulated his $1500 plan!
    Perhaps someone should communicate this little oversight to the seller via e-bay message? Might make for an interesting response... Alain?, this is your speciality...

    From his response, he seems a little mis-wired in the ole head.

    His response, besides being illiterate, is illogical.

    I sent him a message I hope he posts it asking if he regularly smokes crack. Also whats the verdict on these pickups?

    They're nice...I have one. Not the $400 reliced one, the regular $150 one which is the same the thing, minus the longer legs, relicing, and Ed's signature.

    My friend has one in a Frankie Replica, ash body, and it rocks. Really sweet harmonics that jump out.

    I still need to test it through my 5150 more (it may be on the bright side for an amp like that), but from what I've heard, it's a cool pickup. I'd already have one if it wasn't $140...
