    Default RUDE & Neptune builds

    Back in Oct last year, I bought a couple of bodies from Locke Guitars. I sprayed the base coats on them almost straight away and they have been sitting around ever since.



    I finally got around to laying some tape and spraying some paint over the weekend...







    Obviously, I haven't sprayed the black on the Neptune yet (next weekend), but they turned out ok. There are heaps of things I wish I had done different, but it is what it is...

    The RUDE was a major pain in the ass. Without a doubt the most difficult EVH guitar I have done. The taping took forever... So frustrating... I'm glad its summer here otherwise the body would of ended up in the fucking fire... Never doing one of these again... I didnt do the "EVH/RUDE thing in the neck pocket yet, but I'm going to do it later. That could of tipped me over the edge if I had done it now...

    Still got to collect a few more parts, so it will probably a couple months before I'm playing them, but I thought I'd post them anyway...
    If you have nothing nice to say about Eddie Van Halen, you're at the right website. - Me (A few years ago)

    "People take Van Halen much more seriously than we do" - David Lee Roth (1980's)

    "For some reason people love to complain about everything. The internet has made it easy for people to do that. Shut the fuck up and get a life, or show me how good you can do it."- Edward Van Halen

    "A lot of people ask me which Van Halen singer was better. You can't compare them. It's like asking which guitarist is better. Nobody is better than anybody. Every player is their own person."-Edward Van Halen

    Nice, looking good so far! I have a soft spot for the Neptune Kramer because I saw it as as teenager when I was in Orlando. I've always liked the Rude more than the Circles too.

    I'm partial to the Neptune, as Jedi said, although I have yet to see it in person.

    Those look GREAT! Love em!
    Now comes my favorite part of the show. It's my favorite part of the whole evening. We've been on tour since March and I have no better time anytime then right now because I get to go sit down, have myself a nice cold one and listen to the greatest rock n'roll guitar player in the world. Mr. Eddie Van Halen. - Sammy Hagar

    I've been tryin' like hell to find the motivation to do a 5150, but I just can't light that fire under my own ass. Maybe I've gotten burned, out? I dunno....
