    Darn... Darn darn darn...

    You guys are making me want to build a proper Franky, especially considering that I never realized that I could skip the hard part of filling the grain (what always kept me from finishing Ash "properly").

    After the "discussion" I had with my wife last night, though, I may have to just live vicariously through you guys. LOL

    Looking awesome man! BTW...what wood is the 5150 body you have? Basswood or poplar? Sorry for the dumb question, but it's got a real interesting sweep in the grain pattern. I have one basswood body that has fairly high definition in the grain. Just curious.

    That "discussion" is merely a rite of passage my friend! all of us gear freaks with wives have had that talk....or look at one time or another. My wife is pretty accepting though. At least now. Over time, she's gotten to know that things can really play or sound different. I was actually blown away a while ago when she heard one of my songs that came on my Ipod in the car. she said "That was your Explorer, right?" I thought that was real cool. a lot of average people actually don't know a single pickup guitar from a humbucker equipped one. The fact that she could tell the difference between the Explorer from my Franky, SG, Attila, etc. blew me away! I picked a great woman....Even if she still doesn't get the whole affliction of GAS.
