He just signed with Charvel, didn't he (division of Fender) around the end of the last musical disaster?

Are you saying that you've heard he's moving to yet another brand this spring? To do what?

As much as I love Ibanez, I cant see him ever going to Ibanez for a guitar.

BUT, Im sure people would have said the same thing about Peavey before the Wolfgang came along. ;)


I dont think he's lookin for a deal, I think he's playing his signature Charvels, which is owned by FMIC (Fender Musical Instrument Company, I think its called)

They're like $3000 each, for a hacked togeather parts guitar, with the Charvel name on it. I dont understand why people shell out the dough for this stuff.

Because they are made just like the ones that belong to the guy who used to be Eddie Van Halen.

I heard (from the internet somewhere, forgot where) that there is going to be a Fender version of the wolfgang. Not sure if this is true or not?

Why do they want to do that. Peavey is already doing a modified version of the original Wolfgang.

It's pretty close to true, an acquintance apparently submitted close to 50 variations of the headstock design since they couldn't use the peavey shaped one. other than that they're pretty tightlipped about it. From what I'd heard last summer they were supposed to be ready come winter NAMM, but since that's passed already it doesn't appear that what ever it is, it's ready. I'll bet maybe summer NAMM but I'll also wager that by then Eddie will have no teeth
nor a band to back it up.

Peavey's modified Wolfgang doesn't say Eddie Van Halen on it, just like Ernie Balls (hehe I said balls), modfieid Wolfgang didn't say Eddie VAn Halen after he went to peavey, and they don't sell as well.

I could probably take a dump and if Eddie endorsed it someone would pay me very well for it.

Eddie with Ibanez, to me, sounds almost like putting ketchup on your pancakes. Both are fine, in their own right, but not a good combo. And besides, yeah, Eddie's doing the whole Charvel thing, so I would not be surprised at all to see something from Fender coming out, with him, in the near future. Sadly, "Charvel" isn't Charvel, anymore. You wanna see some cool vids, go to Wayne's site, and check out the string of vids he did, showing him doing a guitar, from start to finish. Very cool and informative.
