    Default Charvel Star EVH replica question

    Hey guys,

    been building the EVH replicas for a long time but one I have never tackled is the 1980 Invasion tour era Charvel star replica and I have been itching to do one. Been searching for the proper guitar to use or to just have a body cut for it. My question.... is the "Charvel Desolation Star DST-1 FR Electric Guitar" that you see on the bay have the correct body shape for one of these replicas? Its a one pickup, one knob, floyd rose set up and that essentially is what Ed had. I understand new PUPs, chrome floyd, custom danelectro neck (to keep it like Eds) as well as some other minor hardware issues would be in order but the big question...... is the body the correct one for this project? Dont know too much about the old stars.... If its gonna work I may grab one, play it as is for a while and then stripe it up and have a new neck cut for it over the summer.

    thanks guys,

    Rob

    I havent looked at the finer details but Mitch looks like he's got one that's at least close. then you need a danelectro neck from the bay.
