My Frankenstein

I am pretty curious to see how will play, however i am building up my version of Evh's Frankenstein.

Body: actually i bought this from "a place that cannot be told", so still i dont know if measures are correct or crappy.. my liuther will judge ..maybe re-do maybe not.. it's poplar,otherwise would be alder,not so much difference here:



Neck: as usual i always want the two opposite choices: eye-candy showoff beauty, or simple neck full of contents? i went for both, but i will start another topic about Et guitars lightning's axe (i am eager about testing mahogany w/ash top).

I asked Jaden a very simple neck, alder+purplehart and pauferro fretboard FULL scalloped. i didnt see any like this here (pretty wired,imho). No inlay,leds or whatever:



Pickups: Bareknucle's nailbombs and trilogy single coil. i loved them on my original jem, so here's the right fit

Bridge: whatever floyd-rose i can apply d-tuna. i asked my liuther to use two screws to stop the floating bridge, so i guess there will be a "clack!" each time i relase bar

Eta: end of november (1 year since beginning), getting pretty excited by GAS effects

Alder neck? I though Alder was too soft to be used for a neck? Purpleheart would add a lot of strength, but i've still never heard of an Alder neck.
