"As low as 833,99 a month!"

Why not just put up "We don't just want your money, you need to throw in your soul and your daughter too", that'd make it simpler.

Are there any companies that HAVEN'T had a Frankenstein sig model?

Maybe Toys R Us....

Leaving no stone unturned, the guitar is complete with a non-functional three-way switch


Well, then, get two!!!

I think that option only cost 870.00

I thought the fun about having such a messed up guitar was in actually messing it up. I don't get the point in paying for cigarette burns and a non-functional switch.

Yeah.... I can just see myself paying big bucks for a copy of "Blackie", only to send it back with complaints.

Povo-vill has made a poor name for itself with the closure of the soup kitchen.

That's a pretty common price for a limited edition replica guitar, especially for a guitar as legendary as the Frankenstrat. It's a collector's item - something you hang on your wall, not something you use. Much like all art (paintings, sculptures, etc.), it's ridiculously "overpriced" - but only because there exist people who are willing to pay that much money. I put overpriced in quotes because if there are people willing to buy it for that price, then it's worth that much. Supply and demand.

Edit: Even a replica from Greg Fryer will run you at least $10,000. Also, I remember the Jimmy Page replica being at least $24,000.
