    Peavey EVH Guitar "tallest in the world"

    Bunkie-made guitar sign to be "tallest in the world"
    6/21/2005
    The Associated Press

    BUNKIE, La. (AP) - This is no air guitar. Workers are putting in long
    hours to make sure that a 112-foot-high, $1.9 million guitar sign with
    neon strings is done by July 5.

    "They just want to be able to say, 'we did it,'" said Todd Ducote,
    foreman at Kojis & Sons Signs.

    It's destined for the Hard Rock Casino in Biloxi, Miss., about 200
    miles east of this central Louisiana town of 5,000. for now, it's in
    eight sections. Just one piece of the neck towers over its makers.

    Ducote said Kojis & Sons beat out several other sign companies for the
    job, partly by promising to finish in six months. The casino is
    expected to open around Labor Day.

    He and about 20 other welders, electricians and other workers are
    putting in "every waking hour" to be sure to make deadline, Ducote
    said.

    "We had been trying to tap into the casino industry for some time,"
    Ducote said. "It's mostly dominated by more well-known companies. So
    getting our foot in the door seemed impossible."

    Now that the foot's there, the company got a lot of attention at a
    recent casino convention in Biloxi, he said.

    The sign is so big that its support column had to be driven 90 feet
    into the ground. The whole thing is engineered to stand up to 180-mph
    winds, Ducote said.

    Representatives from the Guinness organization will be on hand when the
    sign is installed, he said, because it's to be the world's tallest
    replica guitar.

    The sign is a copy of one specific guitar: an HP Signature Peavey held
    by rocker Eddie Van Halen during a promotion.

    That's why that guitar is in Ducote's office for now.

    This huge replica of Eddie's guitar is awesome but it still probably won't convey the big-ness of the stuff that comes from the little one.
    Sammy did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.
    Michael did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.

    Q: who was the biggest douche that you have worked with?

    A: Eddie Van Halen hands down he threatened all the stage hands that if we wernt all pushed to the side when he got off stage that he would "bash our faces in"

    Now the new David-Lee-Roth-Van Halen album, ďTokyo Dome In Concert,Ē is available for purchase, and itís super, super, super, super, super, super, crazy bad. - Doug Elfman
