    Default The Original "EVH Rude" Resurfaces?

    Check out this video @ 2:00...

    http://link.brightcove.com/services/...=1269013672001

    Looks like the original "Evh Rude" hanging there! It now has an EVH Wolfgang pick-up, a Wolfgang knob, a gold pick-up ring, gold strat jack and an "EVH" stamped Floyd installed. Never expected to see that one again!

    I saw that and wondered about it.... I just figured it was another Chip replica, since it's hanging in what looks like part of the Fender factory.

    I was thinking the same thing. That was actually the first one to catch my eye.

    Yeah, I saw that too. Thats why I doubt the EVH Rude guitar is the original. Obviously, I dont know for sure though.

    Also, isnt the input jack on the EVH RUDE up side down (on the original)??? Its in the "normal" way on this one.

    It was originally upside down, but it's very easy to reverse it back to normal so, I wouldn't go by that. I say it is, in fact, the original...

    I saw it there as well and just assumed it was the original with some new additions as Jimi pointed out. It just doesn't seem likely as a candidate for a replica due to it being mainly known by the true EVH guitar geeks, and those who are able to share in their wisdom. Someone here must know Chip or at least know someone who knows Chip so they can ask about it.

    I think that the fact its sitting in a room with a replica Franky and Bumblebee and also a couple of professional guitar builders who by the look of it, are pretty big EVH fans, I'd say it is a replica. One of those guys could of painted that thing up in an hour or 2. They have probably handled and studied the original many times.... But again, who knows.

    I really enjoyed those videos.

    I definitely think it's cool how they're pushing the EVH brand--especially the guitars--into new territories.

    So it sounds like they are indeed changing to flame maple on the standard models. The first three years of EVH quilt tops will kind of be the equivalent of the Peavey "first year quilts."

    I believe you might be right Jimi..... the last time we saw any pics of this guitar (look on the Kramer website) or in some of the Young Guitar mags the Rude guitar is just a body with 0% hardware on it. I wonder if Chip or someone from Fender saw it sitting there at 5150 all by itself and said, "hey can we take that body to the shop and put it all together?" Knowing Ed he said, sure go ahead, I have no plans for it.

    it just makes sense to me but then again....who knows,

    Rob
