did he name the guitar after his son or the other way around?
While he named his son after Mozart he named the guitars after his son. Wolfgang Van Halen was born in 1991; at that time EVH had just finalized his EBMM Signature model and was using those guitars. When he moved to Peavey in 1995 he named the guitar after his son. Of course that means the guitar was indirectly named after Mozart, but the intent was to name it after his son.I think he named his son after Mozart and he also used Mozart for the guitars but his son might have had something to do with the guitars as well.
Definitely growing on me... is it made by Fender, his own brand? I like that dark charcol one he is using on the live clips. What's the going price for one of those? Has the Floyd gotten better/easier to use (since 1990 when I had a guitar with oneI guess I am in the minority but I dig the head stock. I can pop a brew with it!
