    Default Sonic Blue VH I

    Just completed my latest project, the "Sonic Blue VH I"


    I know it may not look terribly exciting, but despite it's rather drab, "plain Jane" appearance, I was able to construct a monster tone machine using an eclectic assortment of parts from some of the best parts companies out there!

    Here are the specs:
    Body- Frankenstraat two piece Northern Ash (based on Charvel Asuza #022!)
    Neck- Musikraft two-piece maple/BE maple, rosewood fret markers, brass side markers
    Pickguard- Divebomb VH I
    P/U- Seymour Duncan EVH '78
    Bridge- all Titanium Floyd Rose

    Standby for more detailed pics, a full review of the Ti Floyd and, of course, the obligatory video!

    Look closer at the second picture and you'll actually see the wear... in any case, I'm sure you'll change your mind when you see more detailed pics- the finish is "checkered" and it's replete with dings and scratches of all kinds!

    Did you do the relicing or did Frankenstraat? Either way it looks GREAT!

    Gotta ask...are you responsible for the oriental garden in the photo? For a second, I thought I was looking at my father's backyard landscape -HA!

    Neither. The finish and relic was done by Mark Jenny from MJT Custom Aged Finishes. I highly recommend them.

    Ha, ha! Yes, now that I can take credit for! That's my Japanese garden!

    i really like it, sonic/seafoam blue is one of my all time favourite colours for a Strat. I have plans myself to build a relic'd seafoam over 3 colour sunburst.
    anyway less about my plans...that guitar is awesome, kinda reminds me of one i saw Jake E Lee play a few years ago, can't wait to hear the clips to see if that bridge is worth the hype.

    Did you ever find a Titanium Big block? If my memory serves correct, you were going to upgrade?

    Japanese garden...WOW! Lots of work! I had the annual task of removing bamboo shoots that would "pop up" in the middle of the yard - about 20-30 ft. away from where it was planted. I can see why bamboo shoot torture was used during the war...it'll emerge almost anywhere and thru anything!

    Yeah, I took out Ti block I had installed on another one of my guitars. The Ti bridge now has a 42mm Ti Big Block. By the way, the 32mm Ti block that came with the all Ti bridge is available for $50 shipped. It's perfect fro those of you that have a recessed Floyd Rose.

    Very cool guitar Jimi.
    I had a nice garden a while back too. Raccoon's destroyed it! Ate all the Japanese Koi as well. Little buggers!
