    Default 2008 mini little guitars... guitar

    Dont know if this has been gone over before but does any one have the info on the mini franky EVH used on the last tour. it looks like it had a floyd on it and most likey from fender im looking for pics etc. Im thinking of making one for my son and so far the only option is just to use the mini strat thats out there. (if ed taught wolfgang on the mini strat I guess that is the way to go.)

    thanks
    Jeff

    Hi Jeff. I've been doing some digging, and yes, Ed at least on one of the Mini Frankies' had a Floyd on it. You can see it in the GW issue featuring Ed and Wolfie. I tried uploading the pic, but my service is down right now. Another interesting fact on the one I saw is that it is also fitted with a short scale Paul Unkert (Unk) neck. If I can upload it tonight I will. Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. It does appear for the record to be a standard Floyd, at least the locking nut does.
    She looks so $#@!'n good ,so sexy and so frail....Somethin's got the bite on me, I'm goin' straight to Hell.

    cool thanks, I have to have that issue somewhere around the house. Im torn between the squier strat ,That id have to do major routing or a clearwater strat that has a trem installed that would need just minor routing. But I have no idea the quality on the clearwater.
    Im hopeing for something with a maple neck pops up on ebay. I got pretty much all the hardware to upgrade including a original floyd to go on. i gotta feeling that this is gonna be a quick project first then Ill probley get real down to the hard core details later.

    Jeff, F'straat made these a while back. Not sure who bought one besides me, but I haven't done much with it. The first body was wrong not allowing the floyd to mount properly, and the fret tangs on the neck were like razor blades. He sent me a replacement body after a ton of emails, but never acknowledged the shitty neck from those same emails. The neck seems to be a 24 3/4 scale warped maple turd. He still owes me parts from probably two years ago that I have written off since he is worthless to communicate with. I'll try to get some pics for you in the next couple of days. I owe kyle @ divebomb some different ones first, but I'll take yours at the same time. We are just climbing out from a brutal storm here, so give me until the weekend.
