    So I built an EVH Frankenstrat partscaster. Still not quite done. Posting pics of his original for comparison. It’s not completely finished and there are clearly some mistakes 5DF647BC-7F49-4E71-8BC6-6E401A8527B1.jpeg E8C40965-CCAC-4C7E-B499-81CDCD99E4F1.png C2341FA3-C4AD-4D6B-9334-5A416989DC0E.jpeg 33015B05-0CAC-436B-A2D9-C818701E25BF.jpeg BEE2617B-C1F3-4256-BA06-1A93614B08FE.jpeg 366050D1-BBF3-4FEF-A7DF-C6F48672E980.jpeg 5566C445-193E-4080-B5F7-3F97774BF1CD.jpeg 94A88D69-1378-4CED-88A5-849EFD1669ED.jpeg 63828D56-6580-442E-9B42-588876979541.jpeg 3DA80309-CE77-4039-B04B-695C3749BA20.jpeg

    Nice!!! Iwhat did you use to age the neck? I was messing around at work one day last week and was looking through a styrofoam cup of change that I dig out of the car vacuum that I keep on my desk and found a 1971 quarter for mine. Sure enough, it was the 5th quarter I found in the cup. I also have a Floyd that I will be switching the bridge to so I will put the quarter on when I make the change. (see what I did there)

    Before I started I played it a lot so there was a fair amount of my own blood sweat and tears on it. I pulverized a piece of pencil lead between a folded piece of paper then applied it with a cloth. The combination of natural body oil and graphite make a nice worn in finish.
