WOW! :shock:

Excellent work! The VH-1 is dead nuts accurate...I'd love to see the back! Beautiful stuff all around but wow that VH-1 is the shit! You even got the arrow pointer on the Volume knob!

You might try to find a correct tremolo arm...that's really the only thing that I can see. I was able to find an arm with the correct angle (same as what came on my '68 strat) on eBay for $25...

I want your B/W Frankie with a passion :mrgreen:

Is this the guitar you used with the Super 70 in it?

That's out of the scope of this forum. Try halen dot com. Steve has an amazing build going on over there that is very well documented. Feel free to PM as well if you'd like. I'd be happy to help.
Cheers

Those guitars look amazing!

What's the point of those metal screw-things that Ed put on the shark where the piece was cut out?
