    Default How Many Different Neck Did Eddie Have on the Frankie Body?

    Just watched the FSG Video, first time in a long time, and noticed Eddie had the 5150 neck on the Frankie body in that video. How many different necks did he have on that body? Seems like I’ve seen a couple.

    Interesting it was a different neck. That being said, seems like Ed changed the neck on the Frankie a lot, or did he have many Frankie bodies with different necks?

    He had 3 frankys. Original and 2 Kramer made frankys.

    But a buttload of 5150 bodies were made and stripped for him.

    Look at the stack of stripped bodies behind the yellow double neck.

    The guitar in that picture is the Franky. Like, the original Franky.

    There’s been a bunch of different necks on it.

    There have been a few. But I'm fairly certain Ed only had one neck on it at a time.

    I just looked through the Franky Pictorial History thread. Assuming that thread is exhaustive (it may not be!) I count 9 different necks.

    Im 99% sure the Wolfie neck is on a replica Franky. That's the 2012 tour. Franky was retired long before then...

    I believe this is correct. We’d never know for sure but I’d bet that it was a replica as well.

    If we are talking about the original Frankie body, I believe there were at least four different necks on it. From what I can remember, there was the large 70's headstock with a very faint "Gibson" logo on the white and black version, and RWB verson. Then, there was a regular size strat headstock where the headstock was painted black. Then, there was a regular size strat headstock, unpainted. After that, there was the Kramer beak headstock neck. He may have snuck a couple more in there along the way, but those are the ones I know of for sure.

    4. Charvel Bumblebee Black headstock

    5. Knotty Headstock/10th Fret Bloodstain Boogie Bodies (also seen on the bee)

    6. Square Heel Boogie Bodies - went on the guitar 3 times and is the final neck for the guitar

    7. Round Heel Boogie Bodies

    8. Kramer Pacer ‘Lawsuit’ Strathead

    9. Danelectro Neck.

    10. Kramer Beak

    11. Tom Anderson banana neck (made/painted by Benny Rodriguez)

    Wow! A lot more than I originally thought. Thanks Jedi!

    That being said, I like that Wolfgang neck on the replica in the pic above.
