Well been thinking about doing a EVH1 Clone so i have started.

Bought an 80s Antoria Starmaker of ebay For £30 {in bits and partially sanded}

Some paint sandpaper and the like i have a pickup ready to go in and i have brought a mono jack and cts audio taper pot plus i have a pickguard being made.

Iam going for the battered look as Mr Van Halens was

Will post more picks as i proceed if you want to see them


Partially sanded front had to do the back and sides

Small Update I have found a suitable pickup from a guy in America who makes replica EVH pickups should get that this
week.

Also bidded on some locking tuners on Ebay and brought a new guitar nut.

plus I have wired in the Ground from the bridge and wired up the jack plate to the vol pot.
