    Default Eddie's Frankie is worth....

    Well, according to the May issue of Guitar World:
    $1M - Priceless.

    Other guitars of note:

    Jimi Hendrix' 1968 "Woodstock" Strat: $5M

    Eric Clapton's "Blackie" Strat: $1M+

    Jimmy Page's "#1" 1958 Les Paul Standard: $1.9M
    Jimmy Page's ES 1275 Doubleneck: $1.5M

    Brian May's "Red Special": $500K - Priceless (hand made by May & his father between 1963-65)

    David Gilmour's #0001 Strat: $1M+

    Paul McCartney's 500/1 Violin Bass: $3.5M

    Stevie Ray Vaughan's "First Wife/#1" Strat: $600K

    Kurt Cobain's Fender Jag-Stang: $190K

    Cool stuff for sure. Makes you wonder what other guitars are out there & what they're worth (Zakk's Holy Grail, Dime's "Dean From Hell", Billy Gibbons' 1959 Pearly Gates Les Paul, etc.)....

    Mods: Do what you wish with this baby, but I figured it's at least a look before it's sent to the Guitar Room.
    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 ...

    Yeah, I saw this list, too.

    I love how the poster only shows the same size pic of Eddie's axe as it does in the article. I wanna full blown up version, dammit!

    Zakk's Bullseye should be worth something-to-priceless too.

    $1 for a piece of wood ?

    What I'd like to know is how Daivid Gilmore's strat can be worth more than Stevie Ray Vaughn's No. 1...

    It's because David Gilmour's strat was the 4th one ever made.

    I'm able to pay upwards of $38.94 for it. Anyone know how I contact Wolfgang about that?

    If that's the case, the where's Keith Richard's entire collection of Tele's and Gibson guitars on that list?

    I don't get where they justify some of this stuff.

    And David Gilmore with Pink Floyd are much bigger legends than Stevie was. Not that Stevie wasn't on my list.

    Ed had the original 1984 guitar out on tour last year, so I doubt Wolfie got that axe. Prolly just got a back up. Lord knows Ed had a ton of those.

    Regarding SRV, I believe his "#1" Strat had to be rebuilt right before he died. IIRC, something backstage fell on it and mangled the neck pretty good. He ended up getting it fixed, but the damage had been done.

    As far as Cobain goes, I wouldn't give five cents for anything that was owned by that fuckin' junkie ass no talent. I've met people that have moved here to Olympia just because Cobain lived here. It's so sad especially when they hear the stories of him being a downtown gutter punk bumming smokes off of people and being a general leech. It kind of ruins his "hero quality" for some...

    I think the coolest guitar out of those besides Ed's of course has to be Brian May's. I mean, him and his dad built it. That's so cool! May has always had such a killer tone and it's due to him and his dad building that first guitar. That one should definitely be priceless...
