More like the tgp hobbyist luthier workbench,
Because it's fun! Looks great and sounds great and is a living tribute. People attempt to directly ape Clapton, Gilmour, Page, etc, gear all the time. I have several guitars that are meant to be tributes to my heroes, such as my white Les Paul Custom as a tribute to Rhoads, although it doesn't mean I'm attempting to be his clone.
And if someone wants it as a decoration for the den or music studio, it's great for that also. Although I'm not into the fake relic hype aspect. Create your own "road wear" by playing it.
Your fat old man self may look silly holding it anyway. Not everyone could (or should attempt) to pull off flashy guitars.
That's another $1500 (sadly, not kidding..... ).
Speaking strictly for myself, it’s such an iconic guitar, I’d feel like a tool just for owning one.
How often do you feel like a tool in general? I think the red/black/white striped would be a bridge to far to play on stage, but not the others.
At least 2 or 3 times a day.
A reproduction of a guitar Ed said (in the 1985 GW Interview) that he didn't like the sound of. I guess.
I got a hold of one of the old Charvel ones back in the day. Bought it second hand for $400. It had a vintage style, 6 screw Fender tremolo and a DiMarzio Super Humbucker. Gorgeous 21 fret, bird's eye maple neck with a pretty flat radius. And heavy for a front loaded Strat style guitar.
Traded it as a down payment on a Bengal tiger striped Jackson during my George Lynch wannabe days. Wish I still had both guitars.
I had a Schon.
Bought it at Don Weir’s in SF.
It had neither a Floyd nor a Kahler.
It had what I understood to be an Aria trem of all things.
It was a locking system, but the bridge had a smaller Allen than the nut.
That was incredibly dumb, to me, so I had a real Floyd installed.
I don’t know if it was a Grover period or Larrivee instrument.
But IIRC, it was an earlier one.
I saw this guitar at the summer Namm Show and ran my hand down the neck of it. I fell in love with this guitar, but I can not afford the price tag on it. Very nice guitar and the workmanship is excellent. Mr. Van Halen is a very brilliant business man and knows how to market a product.
Yep that was a lot of the issue
