    Did you notice that Franky (is that the original???) has a CBSish headstock in that article?

    Interesting. Maybe a leftover from the Smithsonian B&W? Or possibly THE original?

    Dual thread, but thanks for posting, Johnny B. !!!
    I commented in the other one just now, but suffice to say, that was a nice article

    Probably not THE original VH I neck...


    ...more likely one of the VH I Replica necks from this run...


    The neck does have the string tree hole and the dent at the first fret, though...

    Looks like the curve is a little more standard CBS than Franky headstock. But that might just be me.

    Now, is that the original Franky body or a replica itself? I'm betting replica.

    Yep it's definitely a replica made by Chip Ellis based on the actual neck just like the one that he put on the black and white replica at the Smithsonian. The original neck was ruined when he tried to install the Floyd Rose nut...only this time Ed finally gets a very accurate copy of the original neck with a successful installation of the Floyd Rose nut. Awesome article.

    Some great stuff in the details of those pics...



    A couple of Floyds on the workbench with the stock blocks... does he have them pulled for upgrading, or does he actually play stock blocks?

    Interesting that he has lots of D'Addario string boxes. Does D'Addario make the EVH branded strings?

    And the MXR knob on the Franky replica.


    Also, cool that he has a picture of Mike right there on his wall in the VH1 album art...



    Also see some black on the side of the headstock. Not sure what that is.

    And a security camera feed of outside the studio on the monitor to the left.

    Well, those are bass strings. LOL

    Does he use that Peavey head as a stool?

    Good point.. But there are two more boxes on the shelf next to a box of EVH ones.



    And more at the top left.

    He's got a bunch 12AX7s on the bench, too.

    Well I think his true magic is revealed in those Kroger-brand cotton balls.
