    Default The OFFICIAL Replicas Thread

    Let's use this thread for everyone to post pics of their replicas -- all replicas whether purchased, custom made for you, or custom made by you. Let's keep all the pics in this thread "final"/"ultimate" versions of your replicas -- not work-in-progress photos. We love seeing your work-in-progress photos in your own threads. But when you are done -- post it here! I'll keep using my "Kevin's EVH Replicas" thread to post my progress photos on my new guitars.

    Brett -- perhaps you can make this a sticky?

    Great idea for a formal thread , Kevin . Let's hope we get a lot of input here . I've always loved seeing the fabulous replicas others have made . This should be good ...

    "A lot of people ask me which Van Halen singer was better. You can't compare them. It's like asking which guitarist is better. Nobody is better than anybody. Every player is their own person."-Edward Van Halen

    Dutchie -- those are so awesome. I like seeing your incomplete ones too! Just waiting for the workover.

    Beautiful guitars!

    Dang...

    If you guys ever find yourselves with just one too many guitars in your house and just need to get rid of one, I'd be willing to take one on permanent loan.

    Here's my homemade "tribute" replica (reposted to this thread). Obviously not a meticulous recreation you usually see around here but she's mine and I love her.

    It was originally a black/rosewood MIM HSS strat. Kept the body and tuners only. Ordered/bought everything else separately. Extra jumbo frets on a Mighty Mite, EVH Franky PUP and a heavy duty tremolo block.

    I recently bought a Dremel so I may get back in there and route it out for the "crooked" PUP placement.

    Jimi -- your blue Frank is one of the coolest things I've ever seen. My son immediately asked me if we could make one!

    What an awesome collection. The Rude and the Unchained -- you're killing me!!!

    Jimi's blue Frank is super cool. One of my favorites. I believe he was one of the first guys online to do a blue Franky. I've said it before and I'll say it again, his builds are all amazing!

    Here's my Frankie replica. It was a collaboration between me and Nick A (mrbond5150). Nick did all the heavy lifting, I pretty much just assembled it and set it up. I tried my hand at "Hang 'em High" earlier today with it....and, well.... that song is a bitch... that's all I can say.
