    Dweezil is one of the coolest mofo's out there. And that's such a cool looking guitar. If EVH released it, I'd snatch one up for sure.

    There was an excerpt shared by Rob J. via Hubbard in one of Johnny Beane's videos earlier that I commented on. Neat to see the full version.

    I know Brett hates the idea, yet I also hope the Rasta gets an EVH striped version release.
    Not a fan of the painted headstock, and prefer it bare like photos I've seen of it.

    Interesting that the neck was rumored to be off the original Bee... Don't tell Rita!

    Didn’t I read somewhere that the Rasta is the taped over Unchained Circles guitar?

    You might have, or you might've heard Dweezil mention it in the above video? But yeah, it was the Circles guitar that was painted over. I like the Rasta look much better!

    Neat eh?
    You an see the faint outline of some of the Circles and writing on the back, in the video, and on certain replica builder's axes. At least, the ones who pay Uber attention to detail!

    I love Eddie's paint designs/art work on his guitars. But, I prefer a newish high gloss paint (that the EVH Striped Series does) over the unfinished Krylon spray paint Eddie used on his guitars. Just me, if I was to do a build of the Rasta, I would make it a high gloss /clear coat so it looked new.

    I totally agree!
    Even asked one of our replica building members if he used a clearcoat on certain guitars, and said that I would if it were me.

    The relic thing is neat at times, and my favorite old Charvels etc. had plenty of 'wear', yet I'd personally want certain EVH replicas to have the finish preserved like a snapshot in time.

    Great video. Where is part 2?

    I love the feel of the old paint. The scratches, the dings, the vomit, I wanna feel it and smell it ( ) apparently. I’d take a guitar that looks like it’s been dragged down the street for a week, over a shinny one. That being said tho, wouldn’t turn down a shinny one either.
