This guitar, along with its two other sisters in our collection, was part of Charvel's EVH Art Series. This was a collection of replicas designed and made in the USA by a collaboration of Eddie and Charvel upon signing with Fender Guitars.
These guitars were a brilliant idea in his transition from Peavey to his own EVH line, and with only being sold for a limited time, are a very cool piece!
Below we have an exerpt from one of the ads these guitars were first featured in 2006.
"It's about time! In 1978 Eddie Van Halen revolutionized the art of rock guitar. Not only was his playing style unique, so was his guitar. Uncompromising in his values, Eddie refused to replicate his original striped designs until they could be done on a guitar worthy of his legacy. That time is now.
EVH Art Series guitars are hand built and feature three original striped body designs, a custom wound humbucking pickup, Floyd Rose Original tremolo, and a compound radius quartersawn maple neck."
