So I was one of those nostalgic fools who bought one of these when Eddie died, it wasn't due until 7th of December and then I got a tracking number yesterday.
It's a beautiful guitar but I've had a nightmare getting it set up. From replacing the cheese metal trem posts with Schaller ones...
Think this has been about 3 or 4 years in development at this point?
I like the color scheme, and I think its cool that he is releasing it. However, while I am sure I'll play through it, my 50wIII is treating me just fine, thank you.
I have a feeling that some heads on this forum are about to...
I traveled to Chicago from California last week to attend a wedding for a friend, and see my family.
My brother sits me down, and says he has a little gift for me.
7 month build time.
Carved, shaped, sanded and routed the body.
Fret inlay / clipping / leveling...
I'm willing to sell my Peavey 5150.
It's an good condition but the reverb is kinda iffy.
Otherwise it works great! Asking $500 plus S&H. I can take pics upon request.

Looking to replace the stock pickups (V7/S1/V8) in a late-90's RG570 (AANJ, basswood body, maple neck w/ rosewood).
I play lots of blues, classic rock, 80s hard rock, instrumental rock, classic metal. Also some newer hard rock.
Influenced by guys like EVH, Mark Kendall of Great White...
I have a used Peavey 5150 combo that sounds great. Is in great condition except for the reverb isn't that loud for some reason. I'm looking to trade this for either a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe or a Carvin V3Mc.
Welling to put down the amp and a little cash as well. If anyone is...
I did a search, but I haven't seen this posted anywhere, just wanted to share.
As a WG Special owner, I'm curious about these. I've always wanted to build a Frank replica, and the cost of doing so wasn't too far off...

Up for sale is my 1975 Ibanez Destroyer. The guitar is in very good condition, especially considering it's age. I have several of these so I'm selling one.
Killer player with unbelievable tone. Comes with what I believe is the original hardshell case. $2500 shipped and paypal'd, or 3% discount...
Sammy Hagar mentions in his book that on the Roth era albums, Eddie would sometimes play the bass parts himself. Mike Anthony confirmed that as well. Anyone know what songs? My guess for one is Everybody wants some. Totally sloppy Ed bass playing.

Well, looks like Van Halen just cancelled 30 dates for their 2012 tour. Roth is saying they will be "rescheduled due to exhaustion"
Picked up A Different Kind of Truth today
I was seriously underwhelmed by Tattoo when that came out a couple weeks back. Thankfully Van Halen saw fit to release snippets of other tracks, they sounded a lot better than Tattoo.
Tattoo is the lowest part of a great album, and thankfully it's the...
