    I'm not sure this is how you're supposed to do it.

    Looks like a good list of parts, but that paint job and tuner alignment. Floyd looks crooked too.

    Looks like a shitty guitar with mold and fungus on it.

    Yeah the finish ainít hittiní on much but I wonder if the Floyd/tuner issues just appear that way because of the finish. Sort of an optical illusion. Particularly on the Floyd. Wouldnít musikraft have fitted the body& neck and drilled the posts before it got out the door?

    The Floyd may be the photo angle but the tuners look like he didn't use a straight edge to line then up.

    "Aged to show road wear."

    The only genre I really know is Van Halen.

    That's what I thought when I first saw it. Not too long ago a guy was selling a Schecter that he tried to relic with a torch.

    If we think of relic'ing as a form of self expression, then it's not so offensive.
    Some folks play on guitars with an exact knife, and some use a pick, that's all.

    Think about it, in the right hands, that guitar could set the world on fire.
    I've always had a hard time looking at Edward's mutilated guitars, but a lot of people see them as beautiful. It goes both ways, and it's all cool.
    It's not about the tools, it's how you use them.
    Live, and let live.
    Peace

    I'd be tempted to save it if the price was right. It would have to be cheap though.

    Iím not a fan of 21-fret necks, whether correct for a Frank or not. That thing is not worth $500.
