    Default Fender Frankie Replicas SOLD OUT!

    I'm not sure if this was posted over here, but Fender sold all 300 of the VH Replicas on the first day of NAMM.

    Wow.

    thats unbelievable,can not fathom some one paying 25 to 30 g's for a guitar
    thanks for info
    I used to wonder why he was grinning all the time(Michael Ian Black talkin about EVH on VH1 I love the 80's) but then i realized the reason he's grinning is because he's Eddie F*#king Van Halen

    I'm so sure they've been sold... officially they don't go on sale until Spring 2007. NAMM is a show case to unveil new products not sell them.

    They probably just took orders with $4000 deposits.

    Man, when your bank account shows $5,200,000 and your Calabasas house is worth $1.9 million I don't think the Wife freaks out when you come back from a Saturday afternoon at the NAMM show with a $25,000 striped guitar.

    Man I live in the wrong country...

    It was pre-orders. I don't know what kind of deposite Fender required but it had to be something substantial. In theory, Ed and Fender made or at least have a guarantee of around 8 and a half million this weekend based on an average price of between 25 and 30k per guitar.

    If it was pre-orders then there's probably a max order number and places like Guitar Center and other big dealers will have them on-sale for a short period of time. Dealer sales... not consumer sales.

    I guess they are priced right.

    Supply and Demand.

    I guess I'm speaking to the people who were talking like this is some type of gouging scheme. If it were they wouldn't have sold. Supply and Demand. Some of you need to go back to some 101 courses. (Micro/Macro)
    If eddie were down and out on a sidewalk playing guitar I'd be next to him with a bottle and a blanky braving the cold. I would be sucking my thumb happily making chupa chupa noises in sync with the petroglyphic sounds that came from the mighty finger tips of Edward Van Halen.

    When you consider that someone once paid 700 bucks for a piece of cereal that looked like ET on ebay then 25K for a replica of the Frankenstrat ain't so bad.

    You can make your own for $600 and a little patience. Fuck this $25,000 for a guitar. Just ridiculous.

    Yes, they were all sold. Dealers buy product at NAMM. These guitar were all purchased by dealers and will soon be sold to the public (although, I bet most are already spoken for). I got this info from Dave Friedman (who built EVH's rig for the last tour).
