Im goin to the automotive store in an hour, and im painting my strat to replicate van halens Frankenstein. Now, i like the original look with the black red and white. But i seen the Black body with yellow stripes. I like them both, too much to decide. What do any of you think?

I consider this original. You may not, but that's your opinion.

Do it black and yellow, no one does the bumblebee and everyone and their brother has a crappy, half assed, not even close to the original, version of the black red and white.

Well, you asked for opinions, so I gave you mine.

And i appreciate it, but I did ask what your opinion was on the two options I gave, not whether it was original or not. Thanks anyways I guess

Don't do a frankenstrat. Period. Do something that's original, not a rip off of the work of EVH.

Jim's idea > TS's idea

BTW, you want comments on the pole options, frankenstrat, or original. Copying, or even slightly modifying an existing design isn't original. So I choose original, as long as it really is original, and not a knock off.
#16
by original he means the red white and black franky...

I do agree with jim, do something more original
#17
originality is dead.

and if you cant decide which way to go maybe it's your subconscious telling you both are stupid ideas.
#18
I put original. But heres a cool idea

Lime Green Stripes and Black Body. Yeah!

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Oh Hey look at my signature

^ so?

TS:

Go find a badass stencil, and make this guitar ORIGINAL. as in; nobody's done it before.

To me, that'd be much more worth the time and money.

just saying to be politically correct the original (Van Halen 1) guitar was the just black and white one. the guitars he is referring to is the BumbleBee (Van Halen 2) and the Frankenstrat (Van Halen 3)
