    Default Confirmed in the Guitar One issue-EVH gives Dimebag his ORIGINAL Y/B Charvel

    Just got the new Guitar One-
    Interresting tidbit I thought would end the speculation as to if Eddie gave one of the Art Series or the factory Yellow/Black replicas: Eddie was supposed to personally make one for Dime, he told Dime he'd stripe it just for him after dime requested to be able to skip the auction and just get one. Sadly, Eddie didn't get to make good on it,due to his death, so he decided that he'd give Dime the guitar. Also, it was kinda cool the little writeup on Dime, Vinnie, Eddie, and Alex getting to meet.
    Also, they wrote up about other artists that had passed on-good issue. Good get it-Red43J
    Eddie must think I'm a BOZO to want to drop THAT much on one of his new Charvel Guitars!

    So Eddie gave his original Yello and Black strat from the cover of VH II. I'm confused.

    I was actually told this very same thing by a "source" who reads this site. Nice to know that this was true. Very cool of Ed.

    Graby a copy of VHII and look at the back of the cover. The one you see on the back is the one that he gave to Dimebag.

    Well if that's the case I sure hope that the location of Dimebag's gravesite in never disclosed... Unless he's buried in Fort Knox I can see the distinct possibility of some nut and shovel going after that guitar and whatever else went down with him...

    I'm, pretty sure I read somewhere that Dimebag was cremated.

    Please correct me if i'm wrong but if he was cremated then the guitar only exists in spirit now.

    Either way I think what Ed did to give Dimebag the guitar was one the coolest things i've ever read.

    Well done Ed. R.I.P Dimebag

    Dime was buried in a Kiss Koffin holding EVH's original yellow & black striped charvel. Also included in the coffin were pics of his family & friends as well as the ingredients for his famous Black Toothed Grin drink of choice.
    Doubt if he was cremated.

    Completely huge by Eddie.
    Q: Recording the album took so long your Australian tour last year was cancelled. What was it like in the studio? There's a history of tension between you and Eddie Van Halen...

    DLR: It was like a stand off in a Chuck Norris movie. We each had the laser dot on everybody's forehead waiting for the other guy to blink. Except for Wolfie, he had a Super Soaker ...

    Very cool of Edward. Perhaps it will give Edward the motivation to clean himself up and get his life in order. If not for himself, than for his son. Dime's horrific death is yet another reminder of just how fleeting life truly is. Still, a sweet and lovely gesture on Ed's part.
