    Looks absolutely awesome bro. Super super nice job and the relicing and neck look great!!!!. Rip those schallers off though and throw some chrome crown heads (gotohs) on it as fender got it wrong on their replica. Eddie's has crown head tuners on his #1 original baby. This was finally clarified in the guitar aficionado mag a few months back. I remember when I saw this back a few years back in a Japan mag but it was hard to tell for sure. Still can't see how fender missed that.

    That is one super nice looking Franky man.

    Seriously man, there's no need to be a dick. What Bluto said is spot on. No one needs to see you bring your issues into another thread.


    Awesome Frankie. I've seen a million of these things and I still don't know how the hell you guys do it. Incredible skills.

    I did happen to play a fender frankey . It was nice . But I believe mine is just as good if not better. The only bad is that it is heavy.. Compared to my 5150 collection..

    Meanstreet is right the crown heads cost a small fortune but if you hunt long enough you can find them. It took me a year or two to find some cheap enough to cough it up for my kramer ad Frank guitar.

    I think that is one sweet looking Frank though bro. Love the relic job.
