I'd buy that charvel...the white one, or at least the neck, if you wanted to sell of course.

I think it would be blasphemous to wreck such a quality guitar with that EVH muck (expect a backlash from VH fans)
I really like Eddie but doing that too a guitar aint good:thumb:

Personally I wouldn't stripe it or at least not like a 5150. I think to do a 5150, the body has got to be an exact copy and I notice that the floyd is routed. However, check out Axeshredders self built guitars to see what a twist on the stripes theme can do to brighten up a guitar like the Model 1. :icon_thum

Go for it, it will be fun but, try some abstract non-linear patterns. Why the straight lines all the time? It's all about making it a very unique and personal guitar.

now thats the ticket. The Kamikaze would be really cool with a pick guard! It's a guaranteed Ed copy with out the pick guard no matter how you paint it.

Well you've played it tony, I just think it's a bit dull looking.

Valid point dude, except ed stripes everything, guitars, Walls, the 5150 was just there as an example he has around 100 stripey axes, kramers, charvels, peavey's the list goes on.

Guess i'll just have to see what happens with the poll.

No probs mate! I thought with the 5150 pic up there, thats what you were aiming for. Go with what appeals the most - a proper ricklepotamous special!!!:bannana_g
