    Default Was the square heel Franky neck birdseye or regular maple?

    I guess this was around 1982? What wood was it?

    Looks like birdseye to me.

    Birdseye...

    And yes, that is the same Boogie Bodies neck that was on the Franky in 1982!

    That same neck was also on the Rasta in 1982...


    ...and on the Unchained in 1981...

    Those Franky pics appear to be from Guitar Aficionado magazine.

    Jimi has nearly all the important pics of the evolutions of the Frankenstein in his excellent sticky thread covering the many changes it underwent. About the only thing missing is the recently discovered pic of the unfinished Frankenstein body before it was painted.

    And they are all available online right here!
