    Welcome aboard & please stay!
    That guitar is the coolest Vh replica i've ever seen, man.
    That VHII axe also happens to be my favorite of the bunch.
    How'd you do it?

    Yes indeed...that is one sexy work of wood and metal. The neck and fingerboard are beautiful and that throwback paintjob is a sight to behold as well.
    Is that a Floyd Rose II? I ask because of the angled fine-tuners. It wouldn't be able to be pulled sharp much right? No routing to accomodate...
    Personally, I'd rather the black tuners/locking nut/FR...BUT that is NOT a 'takeaway' from the asthetic quality of that guitar. It is without a doubt a top notch looking creation.
    How does it play? Fast...smooth...?
    What are the electronics all about? Is that a Seymour Duncan JB or is that the pickup from the Wolfgang?

    Once again...nice job.

    Very nice replica, Ron. Great job, man.
    Thanks for sharing the picture.

    Any chance for a Shark replica?

    Thanks guys!
    Lets see, first question. How I did it. Well, Im a guitar finisher. Actually a custom guitar builder. Started as a VH fan just wanting a Frankenstrat on his office wall. From that guitar, I got all kinds of cool feedback. That set the whole ball rolling. Made a relic and put it on eBay, not knowing about the copyright laws. It was up for three days before it was nuked. But in those three days I got so many emails I could barely reply.Thats how I knew I was onto something. Read everything about finishing I could get my hands on. Practice, practice, pracrice, and now Im a full blown buisnessman. Got the wife involed to help with the paperwork. So I work third shift to make sure I have the steady income, and work in my shop in the mornings.
    Next question.
    That trem is a Floyd Rose Pro. I had made(didn't sell) that for a buddy in Jersey. He's a awesome player and a fan and every replica he bought was crap. So I made him a custom axe to his specs and part selection. From what he told me when he played it for the first time (for 2 hours) it was the best lookin, feelin, soundin guitar he ever shreaded. Thats what custom guitars are all about. I use custom made pickups. One pole is a SD 59 and the other is the same as an SH 14 custom 5. They are custom wound to order and not two pups taken apart. The other "Eddie" pups are great. But I figured to achieve that true Brown Sound, I more or less had to make a pup as close to Ed's as I could. They are a little pricey, but totally worth it.
    Ah, last question. My buddy in Jersey liked the Bumblebee so much, he wants a whole Eddie collection. He's unsure if he wants a 5150 replica or a Shark. I'll keep ya posted.
    For now, more pics of my stuff.
    This is the axe I had on eBay. Opps.
