    Bought the bare body/neck a few years ago from an ex-Charvel employee. A little paint, a few parts, and voila, a Hot Rod Strat [​IMG]

    Very cool!!! or should i say "hot"

    Big Head did the paint didn't he ? ( i think i remember seeing this on his site awhile ago) i much prefer the way you continued the flames on the back..Charvel usually does that weird shape thing that wraps the side and back,which i never really liked..love how he added the flame to the headstock also :drool

    That is how EVH rolls. The volume knob as a "tone" knob. Makes sense to me! I love it. Sweet build!

    It's just that " l i t t le b i t " of paint.

    For openers.

    Nice work.

    Yeah, he did a very nice job following/executing it exactly like I wanted. It probably is still pictured on his site.
