This is a guitar for those not challenged in the pocket book. Fender and Eddie Van Halen teamed up to create this awesome reproduction guitar to the axe that accompanied Eddie through Van Halen’s prime years.
This guitar is a 300-instrument limited edition run of the Eddie Van Halen Frankenstein™replica guitar.
This red, black and white ash-body guitar has been put through an astounding aging process to replicate the original down to every last scratch, ding and cigarette burn. Fender craftsmen even scoured the land for 1971 quarters just like the original Eddie at one time stuck under the original tremolo bridge to mount near the Floyd Rose® Original tremolo bridge. The guitar features a Seymour Duncan® Custom Shop EVH® humbucking pickup, a single master volume knob (that says Tone ) mounted on a partial black pickguard identical to the original. Leaving no stone unturned, the guitar is complete with a non-functional three-way switch and single-coil pickup that occupy two of the three pickup routes.
It s a phenomenally crafted piece of rock history of guitar history, period and it could only come from Eddie Van Halen and the talented resources of Fender. It simply must be seen, heard and felt to be believed, and it will re-evoke the awestruck wonder and sheer thrill you experienced the first time you saw, heard and felt the incredible musical power of Eddie Van Halen.
