    on which songs or albums did ED use a charvel guitar?
    and why did he quit using them?
    i am listening to "HOLY DIVER" by DIO
    and VIVIAN CAMPBELL used one.
    i like the sound of them, it's very '80's metal.

    When did Charvel guitars come into business? Because I think the body of the Frankenstrat was a Charvel, but what I've read is somewhat confusing. Eddie bought the Franky body from Boogie Bodies which was owned by Linn Ellsworth and Wayne Charvel. The 9th issue of the INSIDE refers to Franky as a Charvel Strat. And it was used to record a bulk of the songs on the first three VH albums. Not sure about after that.

    Yeah Glenn, I'm pretty sure the Franky is a Charvel Strat. That's all I've ever heard it was. The later ones were Kramers.

    The yellow and black guitar that is on the VH II artwork and was used heavily on the second world tour is also a Charvel guitar. But I don't think it was ever used for recording.

    Eddie got involved with Kramer guitars in 1982.

    Yes, I also am pretty sure that the Franky is a Charvel. It is the same black and white guitar pictured on the VH1 album and the same guitar used in the Jump video 6 years later. Only then it had a different paint job and a Kramer neck on it. Same body though.
