    that guitar is known as the Heavy Metal Franky or also the Blue Headstock Franky. Heavy Metal guitar strings did an ad back in the 80s and used that guitar in the ad with the strings. Paul Unkert painted the guitar and decided to paint one with a blue headstock just to see how it looked. Ed loved it but Dennis Berardi hated it according to Paul lol and it ended up in private hands years later. Paul is a friend of mine and he's told me some amazing stories over the years about his dealings with Ed. Most of my guitars (Kramer anyways) are so detailed thanks to Pauls information lol

    Hey Brody.... thanks man. The Franky does have a Floyd only because I wanted a Floyd on it. Other than that its exact to the real one and how it was. That was the only sacrifice I made on accuracy on that one. I took a bench grinder to the end of the Floyd bar and scaled it down so I could fit a white Strat bar tab on the end to make it look more accurate. where there's a will there's a way

If I would have known that, I certainly wouldn't have spent the extra cash on the proper neck, duncan pickup or German Floyd! Space tape was very hard to find back then (2002).

    I did keep the original Kramer backplate on it, so maybe I might find it one day?
    Oh wow yeah I see what you mean its kinda too bad you didn't keep it sounds like it was an awesome project and came out amazing. Yeah back in 02 it was hard to find all that stuff. Took me a long time to locate all the stuff back then haha but that was part of the fun too... the hunt hahah..

    yeah I've been hoping the VH news desk would one day want to see my collection. Tried reaching out to them a few times but never heard back from them. Maybe one day.

    Rob

    5150Rob, that collection is jaw-dropping. Really, really impressive!

    More generally, does anyone think the HFT will fetch six figures?
