    Default This Reverb auction should clearly illustrate...

    ...the pitfalls associated with day-drinking!

    https://reverb.com/item/2450378-evh-...ce=android-app

    I ESPECIALLY enjoyed this bit..."I built this frankenstrat down to every last scratch on eddies guitar. It is a perfect replica and a clone of the big man ed's himself."

    The craziest part is that it sold!
    No specs at all! Are you telling me I can take a cheap knockoff strat, route it like a franky, give it a worse than average relic/paintjob, use liscened cheap parts that cost $50 total, and sell it for $800+?
    I feel sorry for the sucker that bought this thing.

    If the auction is to be believed, someone paid $900 for that steaming pile of monkeyshit...

    So, you're saying I overpaid?
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    It really just depends on whether that amount was in dollars or pesos...

    You're going easy on him.

    I'd say $700 more max.

    My favorite part is the side by side comparison shot where you can see just how awful it is. You would think you'd want to keep that shit a secret.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    Come on guys, don't you think you are being a little hard on the guy? Yeah, it looks like a Mighty Mite neck on some cheap body, and the paint job looks like someone's honest first-attempt at a Franky, but it's not terrible looking.

    On the other side of the coin, the seller is delusional if he believes that guitar represents $800 worth of labor and materials. At best, I would say that it is worth about $350.00 to $400.00, depending on if he used a real Floyd Rose, good pickups, and it's set-up right. Yeah, he misrepresents his level of accuracy by quite a bit, but unless the buyer is blind, they should be able to see that fairly clearly.

    Too hard on him? With all the hyperbole he throws out in the ad? No sir! That thing is probably THE worst attempt I've personally seen at a Frankie...
