    rockstarguitars.com is selling EVH's Kramer "beak neck" that was on his frankenstrat...this is the same neck that he used at the US festival (and most of the Diver Down tour) and is in the JUMP video...someone buy this because i'm about to pass out...the owner is asking for $25000 or best offer

    here's the pics...it's beyond a doubt the same neck...said it comes with a 100% letter of authenticity...i believe the guy...

    a) you can tell from the pattern that it's the same neck...
    b) ed gave stuff away all the time...the frankie has had numerous necks on it...this one was on it for a REAL long time though...oh man...

    see below

    Look at the logos closely, they don't match. Particularly the letter "a" in Kramer. So unless it was relogoed, which I doubt, something is up. This is something that is way too easy too forge... especially with all the repros floating around out there today.

    And considering the condition of Eddie's health, I doubt even he could identify it himself as the real McCoy.

    :rolleyes:

    Looks to be the real deal to me. I base that off of the birdseye figure of the neck. That's like a fingerprint. You can see the match, particularly around the first fret.

    I don't know, the logo in the photo is blurred. It looks like the same neck to me, especially when you match up birdseye figure patterns. Just MHO though.
