    Green Meanie Replica

    I decided (a while ago) to build a copy (as close as I could get to anyways) of the Green Meanie, it has been 25 years since Vai retired it. So I figured it was as good a time as any. Then I found out Vai was playing locally and that was all the kick in the ass it took to get me to finish it.....
    The specs are slightly different as I wanted the best tone I could get as I wanted it to be playable as well as looking correct.
    I went with an alder body: the tone is better and not as soft as the original basswood.
    I also chose to put contemporary pickups (evo's) vs. what might be in the original as there is no reliable info of what's in it.
    the rest was period correct hardware, oh, the tuners are temporary until I can get a set of the original green schallers? anyone got a set? PM me.
    Neck is original charvelle neck etc... the rest was just stickers, paint and sweat......

    watching paint dry (literally)!!!!

    paint finished with some wear and aging started.

    headstock painted and artwork being applied
