Hello all!

I'm new to the forum and wanted to let ya'll in on the project I have been working on! I have not played for about 10 years but spent some time with a high school buddy that was as big of a Van Halen fan as I was and we saw them in concert together 7 times in the 90's ( awesome ) So I started thinking I needed to build a replica of the Frankenstrat.... I went to Art school so this was right up my alley as far as painting.... I tried to spare no detail and give a good representation of the real thing!

I think it turned out Great! II'm very please!

Then the guitar shop I bought the guitar asked to see how it turned out and they were extremly impressesd! They asek how much would I be selling them for...?

Hmmmm.... I had not planned on selling it or "them" they seemed to believe that I did such a great job that I could sell these for a good amount on ebay. as the fenders EVH replicas are going for 18-25k

Here are some pics of my project, I would love to hear your feedback and advice! Honestly I'm just a huge Van Halen Fan that wanted to build a Frankestrat for myself but if others want me to use my skills to create one for them I would entertain the possibilities!

Here are the pics:

why on earth did you decide to replicate the crappy aspects of the guitar? can't possibly be very fun to play in the state it's in.
