    Default Belated NGD : 2020 EVH Frankie

    Hi guys,

    I got this guitar a couple of weeks ago, but it was at my luthier's, so just got it back this week. It's the Frankie relic, and it is a phenomenal player. I was disappointed with how matte and dull the finish was out of the box, so I took it to my tech, and he buffed it to a semi-gloss, which is much better, IMO.
    These are really worthwhile, and the neck is fantastic, as has been repeated many times. It totally feels played-in. Without further ado, a couple pics, and an Instagram post from the tech, about how impressed he was with it:

    He's great! Builds his own acoustics as well. Uses Brazilian rosewood as much as he can

    Iím gonna take a stab at it and say that itís because itís promotion for his website where you can purchase 3D models of the guitars.

    Purchase 3D models of the guitars? Really? Have you been to the website? I spent my own time and money getting Eddie's guitars scanned in 3D so people can see them from the comfort of their own homes and spin them around. I have nothing for sale. Only a way to get guitars scanned in 3D if anyone is interested.

    Take a look at what you posted in response to KS5150. If you donít think itís advertising, for whatever reason, youíre wrong.

    Youíve posted 6 times and all it is is a way to get traffic to your site. No comment about music, no political ideology, just pimping your website.

    So you can kinda understand why people think that way. Whatever your goal is.

    Iíve banned the guy. Clearly just some dork spamming the site with his crap to drive traffic to his site. Buh bye.

    If he had properly asked for how to display his guitars here I would have let him in a post. But posting off-topic shit about them is a sure way to get banned.

    So I played the Frankie again yesterday and A/B'd it against my R9 (Les Paul reissue). The Frankie is still an absolute monster and is, imo, a bit better player than the Gibson. Albeit it was thru different amps (PV 5150 vs. Marshall JCM 800, but I can't believe how amazing the Frank is, especially the neck...love everything about this

    ďMonsterĒ...Iím with you on that! My local dealer got 3 in on Friday and I tried a couple of them out and bought one Saturday. I was pretty skeptical before trying one but Iím blown away at how great it feels. Maybe itís because Iíve kept it tuned to Eb but it feels really fast and loose! Love it.

    It's cool. I had a previous Striped Series and it was good, but not excellent. I moved it along in 2017 when I got my Kramer 5150 built, and then took a flyer on this one after Ed's death...I can't say enough great things about it, along with everyone else

    I totally agree, the Frankie Relic guitars are worth every penny, it’s far superior to the Striped Series guitars. It feels like an old comfortable Strat, sounds and plays Amazing. I had to pull the trigger on this guitar after Eddie passed too. I thought about building my own tribute Frankie, but I don’t really have the time or patience to do one myself. I’m super stoked that EVH put these out. I highly recommend these Frankie Relics, it’s not just for show or a wall hanger, this guitar really brings it.
