    ohhhh no these guitars are brand new they have floyd rose trems on them ,differnt pick ups and waynes headstock....when charvel first started copying them back in the late 70 s the floyd wasnt even out yet.. i think eddie was upset that people just started painting and making strats like his so he changed his...the main big huff him and wayne got into was over the idea for the rear routed strat body...eddie claims it was all his idea and only charvel had the tools to make the body for him....anyway all those wayne guitars are brand new..i doubt you ll ever see those black and white or black and yellow charvels from back then.....

    These have been out for awhile:
    http://www.wayneguitars.com

    Nice looking guitars with lots of cool options, but the site hasn't been updated for a long a time....Haven't been able to find out if these are worth their price or not too...

    As stated above, I think the reason why Eddie and Wayne Charvel got into it was because Charvel claimed that he designed and built Eddie's Black and Yellow Charvel (Van Halen II guitar) when all Charvel did in reality was route the body and paint it. It was Eddie's design and Eddie was the one that put everything together and Charvel went and took credit for it. I think those guitars that Eddie spoke of when he said "they" were copying his black and white guitar were cheap Korean built models made out of plywood from some off-brand company back in the late 70's. I don't think Charvel was copying that guitar - it was some other company although i could be wrong. Also, that guitar on ebay looks to me like a newer model guitar just featuring the same paint job and as someone spoke of earlier, that guitar was originally equiped with a Fender vintage style tremolo (not a Floyd Rose.)

    its funny how on charvels site he tries to say he gave eddie all his ideas for his guitars and him and eddie are great pals....him and roman should get together they both love to charge arm and leg prices for eddie copies and whore off eddies name.

    I don't think Eddie had a problem with Wayne Charvel. I think it was after Wayne sold the company to Grover Jackson that all the whoring and prostituting went on. I seem to remember an old interview where Ed said he was considering endorsing Charvel before it was sold.

    the interveiws i have from 79 have eddie sueing wayne charvel for stealing his rear routed strat body(black and yellow striped)and that he was going to endorse before that happened.....look at pics of eds red,white and black frankie (during vh2 tour) with the black painted headstock that has the charvel logo on it....eddie has the logo covered up cause of the lawsuit....and if you go to wayne charvels site read his story of how ed hung out at his shop and got all his ideas from wayne(according to wayne) plus he s selling vh1 and vh2 copies of eddies strats for 1800.00 so to me thats whoring eddies name and persona.
