    Default VH Replicas

    ok,

    just finished the painting. All the overspray came out pretty cool but the only thing I think I dubbed up on was the thin stripes are a little too thick.... oh well.... I just added the "Z-1984" on the back. I should have all the parts available within a couple weeks. Should be finished up by then. Its going to be the 84 tour era. This is the neck that this guitar started out with and ended up on the HRC cafe kramer...

    Great build. Definitely one of my favorites! What pickup are you putting in there? I liked the idea of combining a SD 59 and a SD Custom Custom. Anybody on here that could/would do a custom pickup, please pm me!

    Awesome job, Rob. Cant wait to see it finished...

    Another VH guitar.... Does this mean a new family/group photo is on its way???

    BTW, check your PMs.

    ha ha... yup another family photo would be in order. I am most likely going to use a schaller from and old Kramer deluxe I have or a custom custom. That schaller I tell you has a SWEEEEEET sound for sure.

    well,
    here is the 84 all done up. Not a very good player because I used a cheapo neck but thats ok. The other 12 guitars will work just fine. Here is the new 84 next to the berger and 5150....

    it sounds amazing and gives me that balance era/RHRN harmonized, detuned tone.
    I love it

    I am going to have to offload this guitar to someone who knows how to get it up and running because its not playable the way it is now. The neck radius is all off and no one around my area seems to be able to get it to a playable condition. I will probably put her up for sale and do another one for myself out of a real 84 Kramer.

    Hey Rob...Cool looking guitar, sorry...You mentioned the neck being a "cheapo" and the radius being off. I may have missed it, but who made the neck?
    I also had another question because of the pic...What color/brand of paint did you use on your 5150? It looks bang on in the picture. Sleeper told me about a lacquer by Reranch from the states he used to call Fiesta Red, but apparently it's no longer legal for sale or transit into Canada. What did you use?
    BTW....always love seeing the pics you post. Fantastic work you do, my man!

    thanks bro,

    the paint is the duplicolor red that everyone on this site seems to recomend and I get it from Autozone and its certainly some killer stuff for sure.

    the neck baffles me though. Its a cheapo from China but it feels great I just cant seem to get the radius right no matter how much I shim it. I am sure someone else who has some luthier experience can get this thing running in good shape but I can and my tech does not want to mess with it anymore so I am going to offload it and do another one. The body is a musikraft and the neck is a cheapo from china.

    Rob
