    Anyone know of any sites/builders that do really nice replicas? I remember seeing a site before but can't find it anymore. Also how are the Charvel EVH Art Series guitars :confused:

    There is one for sale right now at the ReRanch forum for $950.
    Looks like the guy did a very good job on it.

    There's been one for sale on South Florida Craiglsist for $650.00. Been there a while and I've debated it for weeks but can't pull the trigger.

    Frankinstrat kit or GMW made the best replica.

    Don't know about the replicas.

    I have a Charvel Art Series that I really love, and I got a great deal on it. Bought it new from GC for $1,300 at a clearance sale.

    The pickup is really hot but not harsh at all. The OFR does not float, as you'd expect and it has a much stiffer feel than any Floyd I've ever played. Also comes with a D-Tuna.

    The best feature of the guitar is the oiled maple neck, which is similar to the necks on the Wolfgangs.

    Does anyone know of a good strap that you can use with eye hooks?
