    Default Hollow Body EVH Project

    As some of you may know my son Max has been building replica EVH's since he was 15. I bought this guitar body in March of 2015 with the intention of building it for him to give as a gift. Well in January his 18th birthday came and I hadn't touched it. I gave him the body and told him to pick out all the hardware, neck etc. and I'll buy it all for him and he can build it to exactly what he wants. The bridge pick up is an EVH Frankenstein with a gold cover and in the neck position is a SD59 with gold cover. Gold Schaller tuners, EVH 500K low friction pots and the neck is a AAA Birdseye Maple from Musikraft. He used gun oil as the gloss finish on the body. I personally love the gold hardware on it and the contrast between the unfinished fret board and the guitar body and head stock. What do you all think?

    Nice.

    Wow, that really came out looking great!!!
    You two did a superb job. I think the gold hardware looks elegant against that body finish. Nice neck, too!

    The only credit I can take was opening my wallet! He spent quite a bit of time getting the finish perfect. It just got put together last night. He still has to set the intonation and he's waiting on a gold string retainer bar.

    Not a fan of hollow bodies but that is beautiful. Very nice job on the finish. I'd be scared to play it.

    Your son did a top notch job of putting together the pieces you help secure for him...
    I still say it was a team effort! LOL.

    Thanks guys for the kind comments. I passed them along to him and he loved the compliments.
    It certainly isn't his daily player but a nice addition to his collection. It makes guitar #11 for him.

    Really nice guitar. Not my cup of tea, but I'd love to hear it. Post a clip.
