    "EVH Rude" Project

    I'm still waiting for some parts to arrive so that I can complete my "Black and White Franky" project, but in the mean time, I figured I would start work on another favorite of mine, the rarely replicated "EVH Rude".


    I obtained an alder body from Mitch at KNE...


    ...painted it black and taped up the front.


    I then "masked off" the back to achieve the "negative" image...


    More coming soon.

    It wasn't alder or ash.. it was mahogany... as was the "Unchained/Rasta" for that matter!
