    Default Collateral Damage

    Yes that's a Rockinger Tremolo, yes that's a hole in the body, yes that's a Danelectro neck, yes that's a Seymour Duncan Super Distortion... Just thought I'd answer the obvious questions first. I'm undecided on the tuners, but I'm thinking gold Schallers with black knobs... beat to hell of course.
    I have to work on the paint edges, age the exposed wood, and age the neck still.

    I like it overall, Kyle, but, if I'm being honest, the gaping hole (ala Chris Holmes) is a bit much and why the Rockinger?!! Those things never stayed in tune!

    The Rockinger won't be double-locking and won't have the bar installed so it's really just a big brass bridge. The gaping hole, well, I just wanted to go over the top I guess.

    In that case, it a good choice. Those bridges sound good, but, they do suck as far as keeping the strings in tune!

    I like beaten guitars, it's like they tell a story, like they prove that they were a good used tool and served their time and still resisted.

    But man, Chris Holmes' piss yellow star is so beaten up that looks like it's been to hell and back, did a whole tour, went to heel and back again, and just in case, gone to hell and back again!

    Nice one, Kyle, I always wondered how a crack would look on one of the edges. Are you gonna shoot it too?

    I love this body style, but isn't there a better place to put the jack on it? I always want to put the "V" part on my hip, and the jack always seems to screw that up...Maybe do a fender styled jack on the back of the top long wing? Or do an Ibanez Satriani/Vai type of jack that is less in the way?

    Eddie must think I'm a BOZO to want to drop THAT much on one of his new Charvel Guitars!

    An excellent point, Josh. The jack is definitely in an inconvienent spot on the "Star" bodies!

    A cord with a 90 degree end will be my fix on this one.
