This story with Eddie Van Halen's true ? what do you think of this guitar ?,I particularly like frankenstein guitars, that's Vinnie seemed to have a very unique sound.

I don't know. I smell bull crap. The pink Rhoads guitars are not legit so I don't believe what he says on this one.

And the original, original strings? Please.....

There is a black and white shot of him holding it in an old Guitar World magazine with Angus Young on the cover.

Fuck I wish I could've bought that.
Lee had a shot at it for a reasonable price and to my knowledge didn't buy it.

Great find re the lick it up era with charvel. I believe the story as he has said it for years. I don't believe the original strings. No way. He used to break them all the time anyway. If he was using it in liu era no way about the strings.
He used that on creatures album I am pretty sure but didbt use the rr v's like he suggested. He only got those once he joined kiss publicly after creatures recording.

What confuses me is why he used the other guitar man red strat more than this charvel on creatures tour.
He obviously loved the red strat more maybe?
