    notice the white pickguard
    it's the original frankenstrat before the repainting job, but i've never seen it before without black pickguard.



    if you compare the two pics you'll notice those guitars are the same except for a little paintjob and pickguard...any clue?
    When the first pic was taken?

    Those are cool pictures, especially the first one. That's the first I've seen that guitar without the black pickguard.

    I'll say it again, Van Halen should put out a huge photo album type book.

    In the chapter called Business 101 is Dave's book he says that their management got them platinum necklaces on gold chains when VH1 went platinum. Did they wear those chains before that? I should check out the bootleg forum for artwork and see if I can see Eddie wearing his VH necklace in the club days.

    hey glenn here's something interesting:
    take a look to the VH1 cover, watch eddie's guitar. It has the same paintjob as in the 2nd pic. So the first pic seems to be pre VH1.. if the guitars in the pics are the same guitars..
    ..yes they are the same guitars.. at least it's the same body.
    eddie changed the neck, added some paintjob and changed pickguard.
    What do you think?

    Are you sure those are the same guitars? The second one is surely the one from the cover of VH1, but the first one has three pickups in it. Or does that black pickguard just cover up those other two pickups?

    yes, im pretty sure it's the same guitar.


    this one is the VH1 cover guitar after some repainting..
    Look the neck pickup: it's red like the one on the first pic.
    watch the stripes under the red paintjob they are exactly the same as those in the two pics i posted before...
    I think i've found a very old eddie's pic..

    (..and watch that striped guitar strap...ever seen it before?)

    right now i'm looking for other pics... i'll post when i'll find something new

    Just wanted to let you know...as a non-guitar kind of person, I find this thread very interesting.

    To tell the truth, I really never paid that much attention to guitar details before. Look forward to additional info here.

    Actually batch I think that first photo is around 79 or so. The Yellow and Black guitar strap and his necklace seem to give it away. As you might recall, Ed played the Yellow and Black Charvel, mostly on that tour. His hair cut seems to be around 79/80 or so. I would imagine that photo is just before he painted that bad boy RED BLACK AND WHITE. The photo of him in his jump suit is circa 80, with the WHITE pick guard. I think your first photo was taken around that time. Regardless, that first pic is one I have never seen to my knowledge. And I have seen alot of them. LOL. Very cool man. Out
