    A Few EVH Frankenstein Questions

    Hi Everyone, new member here saying hello and asking a few questions that hopefully someone can answer.

    I'm in the collecting parts phase of my evh Frankenstein build, and my list is almost complete. However i do have a couple questions.

    1. When the paint work is finished on the guitar did Ed or the Replica have the whole cavity lined with foil shielding or just the back of the pickguard?

    2. I plan on making the neck pickup active with a push/pull pot. Can you recommend a pickup that would go well with the EVH humbucker?

    3. What 500k push/pull brand pot would you recommend that has low friction?

    4.Last was. I am ordering a body and neck from Warmoth. Is it worth paying them the extra $10.00 to put the black studs in for the original Floyd or is it easy enough to do? If it's that much of a pain in the ass, I'd rather just give them the 10 bucks and have them do it.

    Any help is much appreciated,

    Thanks again,

    Vandan

    The entire control cavity and the the back of the pickguard were shielded with shielding tape.

    Seymour Duncan SSL-1. Check eBay for a used one first.

    It's easy enough to do as they can actually be pushed in.
    WGAF?!!
