    Is it a Franky Neck? if so I believe these are some of the specs,

    Neck: Maple bolt-on slight Birdseye 2-piece
    Fingerboard: Birdseye Maple Standard 10" Radius
    Frets: 21 Jumbo (Dunlop 6100)

    Taken from MOJODOJO's post in the Divebomb thread about selling one.

    I just wanted to know what profile the neck has!

    Oh, I can answer that. James Duffy, aka, Frankenstraat!!! I'm one of his victims. Gave this cock-sucker $2300.00 for a relic 5150 build and never got it. He vanished from the planet. But, right before he vanished, kept hearing sob stories about his hardships, ex wife, and tons of other shit. Tried to be cool with him about it. But after almost a year of waiting, started calling him out on his BS, threaten legal action, and all sorts of things. Finally, got banned from his site, banned from his myspace page (that should give ya clue how long it's been, since), he changed his phone number, etc.

    So basically, I gave this thief free money. Hope he enjoyed it.

    Frankly, if anything bad were to happen to this guy, I think I'd have to smile, just for the revenge of it. Car accident, disease, $$$ hardship, homeless, whatever, because I hate dishonest thieving assholes that much.

    Fuck James Duffy and all things that surround him!!!

    HH<------still have the money order copy that was written to him 8 years ago------------

    Kyle did a great job on my Frankie. This was about 3 years ago that he built it for me. And, I had no problems whatsoever with dealing with him. Great communication, etc. I think things went bad a few months after I received my guitar. . .very glad I didn't have to deal with some of the things I've read about here. I feel for you guys who have had trouble with any of these Frankie builders.

    I'm not sure who made the display case. My wife got that for me for Christmas several years ago. It does looks sweet. FYI, the neck was originally totally unfinished, but I had too many tuning problems, so I had it finished with gun stock oil -- the guitar is sooooo much better now -- plays great.

    And, yes, Kyle did an insane job on this one.

    I feel your pain brother! So many stories about that douche..Yeah, I got his sob stories about his marriage falling apart....blah, blah, blah. My last email to that clown, I implied that maybe his marriage woes had something to do with him dipping his junk in the local harem of ho's that frequented his cheeze-dick MySpace page!!! I was lucky, and didn't lose any big money from him, but I did send him a neck that loved and I wanted duplicated as a favor for a buddy. Never got done, and never got returned. He made some awesome replica Kramer necks for a while, and I had little time to do it myself.
    Did you ever see that other personal page? It was ridiculous! Talk about your midlife crisis poster child! Pics of him in rented Ferrari's, posing with bikini'd chicks in hot tubs, rooftop pools, limo's, more chicks, champagne, Seriously....if the guy wasn't so white, he'd make a great rapper! The most hilarious part was these chicks would leave some pretty raunchy messages on his page, and then they'd be gone quick, then more would show up, then they'd be gone.
    Then more messages from girls asking why he took them off his page!!! Lol. All this going on while he was still married. Fuckin' moron!!!

    The guy was nothing but POS a wannabe player that couldn't handle the heat. Hopefully one of those tasty lil' gym treats gave him scorching rabid herpes!

    I've got one. Got it from a third party. Has Kyles's Sig on the neck heel. It was never installed I had to drill the holes in the neck to install it. The seller didn't have any info. Said he didn't remember. Divebomb website, at the time, said 10-16 compound radius. I never got it set up right. It has two high frets. 13 and 20. But it plays well otherwise. The neck profile? It's big. Bigger than a PV Wolfgang. Reminds me of an SG I played once. Almost like a baseball bat. Maybe not, but it's big and round. I assumed it would be EBMM EVH like. Mine isn't. I do like it and the headstock is the most accurate I've ever seen. Hope you like yours! Good luck!
