    Default how much duct tape to make a frankenstrat?

    http://chronicle.northcoastnow.com/2...round-in-avon/

    AVON ó Ever wonder how much duct tape it would take to make a near-perfect replica of an Eddie Van Halen guitar?

    The answer is more than 300 rolls.

    The 6-foot-tall red-and-silver rock íní roll homage is the first piece of duct tape art that greets visitors at the seventh annual Avon Heritage Duct Tape Festival.

    Fourteen works of duct tape art are scattered throughout Veterans Park off Detroit Road ó including a Twister game complete with duct tape spinner ó guiding people as they sample the dozen or so food vendors and rides that make the festival so special.

    ďItís safe and fun, and we always try to go,Ē said Avon Lake resident Jessica Russo, one of hundreds of people who already had made it to the festival just a few hours after it opened Friday.

    ďThereís tons of activities and they love it,Ē she said.

    Russo was referring to her son, 5-year-old Trenton Schiavoni, and his friend Jackson Szili, 4, who were both running around like wild men inside a funhouse filled with ropes and walkways for kids to tire themselves out on.

    ďThatís what itís really about. This will put them to sleep,Ē said Jacksonís mom, Charity Szili, laughing.

    In addition to the food and rides, the free festival also offers live music, games and a scavenger hunt that involves each of the duct tape art pieces. Each work has a sign next to it with a letter and a number, and players have to write down that letter above its corresponding number on a sheet passed out by festival workers.

    ďItís a fun little thing to get people looking at the art,Ē said one promoter.

    From the diversity in age groups at the festival Friday, itís clear the event isnít just for kids.

    ďThereís good food and thereís lots to do, lots to see,Ē said 14-year-old Cassie Mattix of North Ridgeville.

    She came with her friend to scope out the festival, but said the real fun will be with all her friends at night.

    ďItís a lot more fun then,Ē she said. ďFor one thing itís not so hot.Ē

    The free festival, which gets its name from Duck brand duct tape, which is made at Avonís own ShurTech Brands, runs today 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Visit www.avonducttapefestival.com for music show times and events. The parade will begin today at 10 a.m.

    Well, the fact that it's six feet tall kind of keeps it from being a near-perfect replica, doesn't it?

    And this thread is useless without pictures.

    Default Hear from the artist

    I'm the creator of this "6-foot" tall replica. It's actually about 15 feet tall.
    But, here's a link for a picture of it:

    Here's a link with multiple pictures, but you have to scroll down, it's a blog:

    If you have any questions, I'd be glad to answer them.

    You have earned the right to be called Mr. Frankenstrat. That is very cool.

    And to think I thought Ed was short but all this time it is his 15' tall Frankestrat that just makes him look short.

    Great job with the replica!

    Amazing job!!!
    If you followed the thread about how much the guy was trying to sell his DLR original artwork for on ebay, you could fetch a cool million.
    Hell, sell it to the man. Maybe Janie will let him put it outside the studio in a case.

    I'd be interested in seeing the link to that thread.

    I actually am in the process of donating it to the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio. So, we'll see what happens.

    I live about 20 miles east of that hole they call a hall. That guitar would look way better on my front porch... if you must leave it in Cleveland.

    It needs to be somewhere with a lot of people that can see it.

    I didn't think the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame was that bad!
    No VAN HALEN in sight. but, I hear they rotate that stuff out.

    Maybe VH can lease it and use it for their next tour. Oh wait, never mind.
