    This is a stupid question, and maybe it is because it isn't painted that I noticed, but do all those guitars have the "teeth" on the base of the guitar?

    yes they do when they are Eddie'd out.

    see the guitar was originally (when Ed had it) and Ibanez Destroyer but Ed in one of his creative moments back in 77 or 78 decided to take a drill and put a bunch of holes in the body and then take a hacksaw and cut out the pattern. What you see Kyle doing is a replica guitar of Ed's creation. This is how it got the name Shark because when Ed cut out the body it looked like a sharks mouth and the jagged'ness created by cutting through the holes look like teeth.

    Ed always stated that after he did that he loved the way it looked but did not prefer how it sounded anymore because the peice that he hacked out of the body removed a lot of the sustain the guitar had. Sorry for overanswering your question as I was not sure if you knew the story on this guitar or if you just did not see the jagged teeth it had. But yeah they all are supposed to have the teeth because thats how Ed's was after the drilling and sawing.

    here is a pic of Edward's before and after,

    Here you go guys...

    It's a slow go, but getting there. The tailpiece is upside down for the picture, so nobody tell me it's upside down.
    And, yes it is a set neck.
