kaloway: Didnt Ed say that the smithsonian was one of the replicas, the actual Frankie is “stored someplace safe”?

The guitar above is Franky #2…

He’s probably got a few of them laying around…

There’s only one frankie :)
From what I remember didn’t Ed write ‘This is the shitz’ on the neck? probably when he was loaded.
The two oval reflectors on the back had a square reflecting pattern on frankie which are virtually impossible to get now. I think that was commented on by Chip Ellis, so all the copies have a diamond pattern.
I have to say out of all the replicas Ed’s using on stage, I like the one with the new fender wolfgang neck on, they’ve scooped away the body neck cavity, so it’s easy access all the way up to ‘widdledom’ …umm nice!

Cool, where did you get those from?
There was a guy on ebay selling couple some months back for $30 I think.
It’s the only thing that bugs me on mine.

Hey Dutchie mate, not a lot ‘Grinds my Gears’ :evil: but I thought I’d let you know what shipping those jokers wanted for sending 3….
“Your Price is $1.19/each. Shipping to the UK will be $35.00″
Be sure to check yourself mate.

Damn… $35 for delivery is ridiculous… Postage prices in general these days is getting beyond a joke…

Thank you for the offer to help out NYC. I’ve got enough for the Franky I’m about to finish, but I need 2 for the next Frank that probably wont be finish until this time next year.

I’ll find some on ebay or something…

If I find cheap ones, I’ll post here.

Thanks again, Guys.
