    Default 5150 Replica on Reverb

    I wouldn't usually do this but figured I'd show you guys what I found on Reverb. Its a 5150 Replica and its pretty damn good. However, the seller is attempting to charge $5,150.00 for it. I get it, the price is 5150, very clever. That doesn't make up for the fact that he is attempting to sell a guitar that you can make for $500 in parts and a couple of cans of spray paint. I contacted him to let him know how I felt about it and that he was attempting to rip someone off that didn't know any better. Of course, it will do no good. Here's the link if you want to check it out.

    I think it's cool that you DID do it ... there's a lot of scammers and fakes on the internet .
    People will pay $$$ for whatever they want , but at least it's nice when the obvious shams are shown in their true light .

    A) He can't legally sell a striped guitar that isn't an official EVH product.

    B) I've seen better 5150s. It's good, but not perfect.

    He must not be to familiar with the 5150, considering EVH had many many of these guitars. All slightly different . So to claim that is like the " real one " is a stretch. Which " real one " is he referring too?

    Well, 5150 is one specific guitar. He's had other striped Kramers but only one 5150.

    I don't see the issue. Everyone who would be remotely interested in this guitar knows it's not THE real one. The price is insane, but he won't sell it for anything close to asking price. Let him get all the exposure he wants. How could he be ripping someone off? It's not like anyone has to buy the damned thing.

    BTW, how did a fool and his money get together in the first place?

    Not directly related to this post but can anyone help.

    Purchased a relic'd Frankenstein about two weeks ago on Reverb from a seller in Jacksonville, FL. Paid for the item. About 2 weeks went by and the seller had not shipped the item and would not respond to any communication. Seller would not honor the transaction and finally refunded my money.

    This guitar was for my kid who had saved so he could get himself one. Now he's devastated. So I am looking for a shop that builds quality relic'd Frankenstein or someone that has one for sale with original (German) Floyd Rose, Schaller tuners, etc. that would not break his bank account.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Being one that got severely burned by a builder, I can say that VHL is full of great, honest people who build replicas and or can get you moving in the right direction to finding one. I have no doubt that you'll get help very soon from some of the greats that are members here. From what I've seen by our guys, and the quality to craftsmanship and details, Chip Ellis might be jealous.

    Good luck.

    What sucks is that James had us all snookered over at EddieVanHalen.com. Some of us defended him, myself included, and then we found out the horrible truth... So sad.
