    From what I understand there's no way Ed would approve that.
    That's why we have Rols.

    Rols, your last post got me curious.
    Have you ever gotten any flak from anyone involved with VH, like peavey, or anyone in the VH camp?
    I know you stripe guitars that Ed would rather not allow sold that way by peavey, but you do it in limited no.'s, and from what I understand you do very good work, so is it just the fact you're not signed, or under contract to VH, or something else?
    It's hard to understand Ed getting bent out of shape when he talked about how none of his stuff was "Korean crap" as he put it, and then goes and mass markets them out of Korea.

    I'm not trying to be an ass here, but can someone explain why you'd want your guitar to look like someone else's trademark guitar?

    Not being an ass at all, I've often wondered the same thing!

    The only way it makes sense to me is if your playing in a tribute band, or are a collector. In the case of a collector I don't see the value in striping anything, cause all your doing is taking a guitar and putting a custom paintjab on it. I can't see the value increasing on a peice like that

    I think it would be very cool to have a guitar like Ed's just to have. If you are playing in a VH tribute band, I think it makes perfect sense to have a striped Ed guitar, that's the point isn't it? To recreate the sights and sounds of Van Halen, and Ed's striped guitars are part of it. Now I would never play a striped Ed in a band on stage or something, but it would be cool to have a nice one for a collection.

    your not an ass at all your just not seeing the whole picture, why do people want any signature guitar , why did they have polkadot Jackson V's ? why are there bullseye LP's? why are copies of Lucille for sale? why do people buy a 5150 amp or a wolfgang it's the same thing, though I would not personally play one on stage unless I was in a tribute band.
    btw it's not a trademark it's intellectual property .

    I BUILT MY OWN 5150 GUITAR. I JUST LIKE TO PLAY VH STUFF ON IT AT HOME. IF YOU HAVE A FAVORITE FOOTBALL PLAYER, SOME PEOPLE GO OUT AND BUY THERE JERSY. THE SAME GOES WITH ED'S GUITAR, IT'S JUST FUN TO HAVE ONE.
    P.S. I ALSO HAVE A PAIR OF STRIPED CONVERSE ALL-STARS. THEY DONT CALL ME ED HEAD FOR NOTHING!

    That's nuts! My thesis is intellectual property, not a funcky paintjob, what next catch phrases?

    At least it's not trademarked YET. [img]smile.gif[/img] I wouldn't be surprised if the R/B/W striped scheme becomes the next E.L.V.H liscensed 'property.'
    Hell the Zappa's have trademarked Frank's 'moustache.' Anything is possible.

    I have only one Wolfgang that is striped done by Rols (actually it was his originally) and it looks sweet. I think it is one of the coolest looking paint jobs ever! I play mostly VH type stuff and he is my FAV player so thats why I have it. However, I do agree that it would be kinda weird to have a striped Wolf if you play in a band that has nothing to do with VH! But have you seen the latest Guitar World mag with Weezer on the cover!!! When I saw that I said what the Hell he must just love Ed or something!
