EVH Eddie Van Halen Frankenstein Replica Guitar

No longer available at zZounds
Limited edition run of 300. Aging process replicates the original down to every last scratch, ding and cigarette burn.

Eddie Van Halen and Fender have joined forces to bring you EVH® brand guitars, amps and musical products, beginning with a most eagerly awaited musical event: the unveiling of 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 routs.

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.

This guitar was made for the sole purpose of looking like and sounding like the original. They succeeded with flying colors. As EVH said himself "it feels and sounds better than the original"
It has the distinct sound that has been crafted throughout the years by the ingenuous "tone seeker" ed van halen. there is not now nor will there ever be another guitar with such a distinct unmistakable sound.
Being that it is an exact replica of the infamous Frankenstrat it has everything to look and sound like van halen.
Ease of Use
Definitely NOT for an amateur. Difficult to play well, but when you accomplish it there is no sound like it.
Compare the 2 pictures of original and new. you will not be able to tell which is which, EVH couldn't
Considering there are only 300 being offered to the public 25,000 is not a steal, but for this guitar that price is to be expected.
Manufacturer Support
Made by Fender, even though i am a die hard Gibson man all my dealings with Fender have been more than pleasant.
The Wow Factor
This is the most recognizable guitar in rock and roll history, buying it would make you the owner of a piece of history as well as the owner of a kick ass guitar.
