    There's a photo of Ed shreddin' a Les Paul on ebay. The front pickup is missing. The guitar looks really weird with the pickup out.
    I guess this is from VH1 Tour.

    There`s quite a few pics floating around of Ed playing a white Les Paul custom on the `78 tour. At the Texas Jam in `78 there is a photo of Ed playing a sunburst custom (anyone know the story behind that one)and he might be playing a Les Paul on the Zero demos , I think they used Kiss` gear for those sessions .

    If you can get a copy of 'Guitar Ledgends-Edward Van Halen' that was put out by (I think) Guitar world there's another pic of him playing that goldtop.
    He's on stage holding it up looking out at the crowd.
    It also has pics of him playing that tiny little Les Paul that that kid made for him.

    I think you may be referring to the guitar that Ed put paint remover on, then swirled it with his fingers... I think it was around the time you are referreing to... [img]graemlins/sssh.gif[/img]

The Simmons demo was with KISS' gear, but since it was mentioned that Ed was playing this LP at the Texas Jam, I was thinking it may have been his artwork. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    The only photo I`ve seen of VH at the Texas Jam in `78 shows him jamming on sunburst custom Les Paul but I`ve never seen a picture of him and that guitar again . I`ve read that when the band came back to the states from Japan in `78 their gear was lost flying back over so they played the Texas Jam on rented gear.

    That's right. The gear at the Texas Jamm was rented so it wouldn't have been the LP I was thinking of...

    This les paul is a late 50s sunburst one that has faded out to what is called a lemonburst..originally was cherry sunburst...it does look like a goldtop but it is just faded..alot. I dont know why he took out the neck PAF.

    Seems like I remember Ed saying that he used the Les Paul on Ice Cream Man, back in those days....can't remember for sure though.

    I have a rare huge poster in my house of Dave and Ed, with Ed playing a white Les Paul Custom. I'll try to take a picture of it and post it on here. Thought I had once actually, let me look around.
