I am looking to get a nice good EVH guitar (strat style not a peavey or wolfgang) so where is the best place to get one from?

Thanks in advance, got to be in Europe or the UK though.

1) Get a Strat and some masking stuff + paint

2) **** up the pickups etc

3) paint it

4) done.

Or just google Frankenstrat and see where it takes you.


Yes, in all honestly, why pay too much for a shoddy copy when you can just as well, if not better, do it yourself It's not even a good looking paintjob on the strat anyway imo

I would do this is if I was you. It would end up being alot cheaper, plus you could a better paint job on it. You said the store had to be in Europe right? Well that obviously means your somewhere in Europe so put your country's flag on the guitar is its simple enough. like the English flag.

look around on ebay. there are tons of guitars people have painted themselves that they can't get much for now because they're "custom" painted.

just make sure the instrument they started with was quality (maybe a fender strat of some sort, at least something you've heard of). just make sure there are decent pictures of it in the auction, and ask a lot of questions (to make sure the seller is legitimate, and you probably have lots of questions about a frankenstrat type guitar anyway).

Was I the only one who noticed "Europe or the UK"? Is the UK not in Europe anymore? Did it float away?

No but i would prefer it from the UK. Ah got to love UG n00bz. Can you still set a guitar up well if you take the floyd off to paint it?
