Thread: Simon's Frankenstrat EVH tribute guitar

  1. #1

    Simon's Frankenstrat EVH tribute guitar

    Hi guys! I've been wanting to do this project for years and finally decided to do it! EVH has been one of the greatest influential guitar players in my life and I adore his brown sound and the famous frankenstrat. I know Trevor made a build from a pitbull kit last time but I bought a standard SSS body from realparts.com.au because that would save me a lot of effort trying to fill the cavities.

    The neck is from Pitbull. I removed the nut and installed a locking nut. Dirtied up the fretboard with a combination of ebony wood stain and graphite powder from a pencil.

    Also, smoking kills so I used a soldering iron instead.
