In honor of Edward Van Halen, show your Van Halen-inspired, signature and EVH guitars. Thank you
(Please delete if there is an existing thread already. Sorry i dont have any, the nearest i have is a shredder with a FR but i've always wanted a striper)
Unfortunately I haven't got any photos, but in the 80's I had a Kramer with the single slanted humbucker, Floyd and hockey stick headstock. Before that there was at least one cheap Hondo done up in stripes with electrical tape.
I'll take a stab at posting from my phone later, by my #1 for the last 5 1/2 years has been a EVH Wolfgang special. And recently sold a old Kramer I had that had 1 Hummer and a Floyd that I got about 15 years ago for the EVH vibe.
I've posted this before here. Truly gutted by the news, Eddie was a huge inspiration. Not only for his playing, but his constant tinkering and innovation. This guitar is always under the knife much like his was. Quarter in this case is a 73 Canadian one, my birth year.
I was obsessed with Eddie Van Halen when I first started playing in 2004 or 2005. I decided in order to sound like him, I needed his guitar. Eddie was between Peavey and Fender/Charvel/EVH Gear at the time, but some Googling told me about a company named Kramer that he played exclusively during the '80s. That lead me to the Kramer 1984 Reissue--an American-made faithful copy of his 5150 guitar. I was sold.
I still have it to this day--it's probably my most-prized possession. Thank you, Eddie.
One of these days I'll have to get myself one of those new relic'd Frankenstrats or a Wolfgang to go along with it.
