    The best part of it is, they did all that work so they could clear an extra $101 over the regular $1099 price of the Star. Well...before labor and materials, that is.

    That, my friends, is called "return on investment!!"...

    Why would you put that much effort into something to get it wrong? I mean, seriously? Why wouldn't you start with some Epiphone Gothic explorer you found in a pawn shop somewhere instead of an EVH Star? It would have probably been more accurate.

    I don't understand why they would use the Star as the template to cut up.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    I`m almost positive you couldn`t replicate the Shark guitar using the Star guitar body meaning they didn`t use the Star body if that matters

    Not as bad as I expected. Sure, it's missing a humbucker, has a floyd, and several other details are off, but the headstock is the worse thing about it. I wouldn't be surprised if there is an EVH Gear version very similar to this in the near future.

    It's not a Star body. Unless they filled and redrilled the hole for the volume pot in a different spot for some reason.

    I don't get it at all, especially with the Dano style neck like the Star. I guess it could have been a Star someone modified, but I have no idea why they'd do this.

    And would have had to add material on the lower bout to reprofile the cut.

    I dunno... Many guys have filled holes and refinished guitars in such a way. Hell, I sold a guy one of my old Charvel bodies to do just that!

    Not to mention, it's obviously a Star neck, the EVH branded Floyd w/D-tuna and cream pickup w/mounting ring.... Either way, a Star was certainly bastardized in some way shape or form! Blasphemy
