    Yeah, most certainly Franky's original pick guard.
    But are you saying that is Franky's body, before the black?

    I've been searching feverishly, for the text I read, about it being a '58 (maybe '59) Fender body.
    I think it was on Metro.
    This is the body I was thinking became Franky;

    Why behave in public...if you're livin' on a playground !

    Yeah, this thread is terrific. But I remember more details on the halen.com thread, and more debate. And someone on that thread mentioned there being even more to the story about the sunburst theory than what was written, but there was never any follow-up. Just my curiosity, that's all.

    So the original Franky has a tele flat heel, which was installed in a strat neck pocket.
    How the hell did that thing intonate?
    And from the pictures of the original Franky - the high E is off the fretboard - how was that playable?
