    OVER THE NEW YEARS I STAYED AT THE HARD ROCK HOTEL IN ORLANDO, THEY HAD ONE HANGING IN THE GIFT SHOP, BUT IT'S JUST A PLAIN OLD WHITE FENDER WITH HIS AUTOGRAPH ON IT. AND IT WASN'T FOR SALE.

    I DIDN'T SEE ONE AT THE CAFE.

    I had heard that Ed saw one hanging in HRC in Fla a few years back and he told them it was a fake. Did anyone else hear this story??

    The one in Universal City looks fake. It was like metalic paint and silver stripes with a white pickguard, sort of like the shark.

    I have a pic of the black Wolfgang Standard hanging at the Hard Rock in S.F. It`s autographed by Ed and dated 11/17/96(I think) he used it at the ALS benefit for Jason Becker on that same date . Before the Hard Rock moved location in S.F. that guitar was hanging right near the door when you walk in and it`s the real Wolf Standard , I plucked the strings and it was in tune . I offered the hostess a $1,000 for it and of course she laughed at me [img]graemlins/drunk.gif[/img]

    Do you know what bar in Shreveport? I live about an hour away from there, and they broadcast the only real rock station I can pick up. Anyway, the bars change about every year, so if it's been more than 5 or 10 years when you heard that, I doubt it's still there.

    Also, when I was in Vegas, there was a wolfgang in the HRH, just inside the entrance. I was signed by the band. I didn't bring my camera with me (left it at the airport in Dallas), so I don't have a photo.
    Your favorite band sucks.

    Well I just got home with major disapointment. There was no VH guitarsor even records to be seen. The only thing VH related in the whole place was a Sammy Hagar picture in the gift shop and a lawn jockey on the stair case holding a krylon spray paint can(I really looked around).

    Non VH related stuff that caught my eye was a Joe Satriani Ibanez guitar and a Vai doubleneck Ibanez.

    Nothing there though was worth whipping out the camera and looking like a total tourist.

    Hey Onrib,
    You have Rivers Cuomo from Wheezer to thank for the abscence of the VH gtr. Guitar world took it out to take a photo shoot for thier may 2002 cover and I guess they haven't returned it yet!

    heh, they contacted me twice wanting one of my guitars to "rent" and I'm glad I turned them down [img]tongue.gif[/img] but it also would have been cool to have one of my guitars on the cover of GW and honestly if I would have know I was gonna get shut down I would have done it.

    Here's a picture of some dick next to the Wolfgang in San Francisco's Hard Rock Cafe.

    4th, 5th, 6th, and 7th Thumbnail

    I asked the attendant if she could take the guitar off the wall for me to pose with it for the picture.

    Her response was, "That guitar doesn't come down for ANYBODY !!!"
