    Judging by the sound he got out of it, I'd guess a Martin Backpacker.

    Eddie's been using a prototype of the new EVH Wolfgang, to be released in the near future.

    True, but I still laughed.

    It'll be interesting to see if those hold their value. Do those come with some sort of certificate of authentication?

    EVH has all new gear that was shown at the Fender booth. The wolfgang guitar was in the showcase that Eddie had autographed and a sign stating coming in 2008. It looks just like the Peavey guitar. I will pass on that. I will stick with my custom shop strats.
    Plus Eddie now has cables, picks, guitar straps etc. He has gone all out to make the almighty dollar. I wonder how long he will stay with Fender. How many more companies can he work with?
    I still think the guy can rock. Michael Anthony was at the Ampeg booth and boy is he a little guy and he looked so old. I haven't a clue who most of the rockers at Namm were, because they are so old now and the magazines always put in photo's that have been retouched. A lot of hair dye was being used on these rockers, the ones that still have hair that it is.:roll;)

    I think he'd be better off with ESP personally. I don't recall him ever marketing guitars with them.

    Just looking around at which major company is doing what, I think ESP is the one with the most potential.

    He should go with First Act. He was upset that Ernie Ball wasn't mass marketing enough, they certainly would churn out the numbers. Plus they'd on par with the quality of DLR on his best day.

    They could give them away with Volkswagons.

    First Act is getting worse?

    Fading? Was he talking about the finish on the quilt top?

    I don't think sueing is Peavey's style. I imagine that Hartley gets a good chuckle every time Gibson, PRS, or Fender sues someone. It's kind of bad for public relations.

    This time the EVH guitars are going to be different. They've always been Eddie's basic design produced by either EB or Peavey. I'm surprised at how many people think he should have changed his basic design because he found a different manufacturer. This time they will be EVH branded guitars which will be manufactured by Fender. If Eddie decides to part ways with Fender 5 years from now, he can continue to make the exact same guitar, he just would need another manufacturer to produce it for him. With the new deal he wouldn't have to worry about Fender, EB. Peavey, or anybody else sueing him over his design. It's now the Wolfgang guitar produced under his EVH brand...quite smart actually.

    A new Wolfgang, and a new custom tossable monitor system. Roadies, protective headgear is recommended. :p
