    Wonder how they can get away with that. The EVH's look pretty good. Descriptions are wacky. They're using the "EVH" trademark and everything.

    That's the counterfeiting capital of the world. They have it all, newly-released DVD's, high-end luxury goods, you name it. And they can escape the long arm of the ELVH lawyers. They probably use lead-based paint on the guitars.

    What a monstrosity.lol The guitar itself looks pretty cool from here..probably a total piece of crap though. Too funny with the bigsby tremolo lol..

    I remember one dude bought a Chinese knockoff Fender Wolfgang in the guitar room. The head stock was huge and it had all types of jagged cuts in the pickup cavities and shit wrong with it.

    Wow that thing looks all kinds of stupid. Add a gibson headstock, a tele pickguard and vol/tone metal faceplate and we'll have a winner!

    No I've never seen these before. Thanks for sharing. I wonder what kind of quality these guitars have.

    If nothing else, these copies show what a gap the EVH brand is leaving in the market. If a decent quality imported approximation of the Frankie or 5150 guitars were availalbe at a reasonable price, I'd have one (or both) like a shot. I'm thinking high end Squier or mid range Tokai quality, with playable necks, but most importantly, the right look. I'd have one just to hang on the wall.

    I bet a lot of other VH fans would too, just to save the trouble of building a copy themselves (though a lot of people would do that for the fun anyway). That's a lot of money EVH is leaving on the table.
