    Yeah, with these guitars I have to imagine it must be cheaper to hire a custom shop to make one (or at least make the parts) using comparable materials, and if you know what you're doing you can assemble it yourself with better build quality than most new guitars.

    Yeah sorry should have given some details. Scott (Jet city guitars) (he used to have an evh clones website) built this one. Saw it on ebay and scooped it up. Had him finish it. It's spec'd to the original EVH version. He adds graphite rods in the neck like wolfgangs and I asked him to leave the cavities unpainted. He suggested a satin finished neck and tinted it to look aged and oiled. I'm building a custom Floyd for it too. I have an original floyd base plate on order and have titanium and brass parts for it. I'm going to get chrome graphtec saddles for it too.

    The only harsh thing is I've decided to use parts from the yellow tribute EBMM I currently have. I'll try and sell the neck/body/bridge to it later.

    I should also say Scott's stuff is impeccable. He CNC's all the parts and has them professionally finished. I put his stuff up against anything EBMM makes these days. He make them how you want and is awesome to deal with. Super nice guy. Can't say enough good things about him.

    Scott was telling me about your body and neck when I was up at his place a few weeks ago... Looks like they turned out nicer than he described them to me... Enjoy!
