    Default EVH/Wolfie-designed guitar up for auction

    Ed and Wolfie designed a guitar that will be auctioned for charity in Arizona. A picture of the guitar can be found here:

    http://www.azcentral.com/guitarmania...ges/eddie.html

    If you click on the guitar, it will zoom in on it. It looks very interesting. For example, at the top of the guitar's neck, it looks like Ed (or Wolfie) wrote "shit". It also looks like there are some handwritten/painted notes on the body of the guitar, but they're too small to read.

    Damn, I just noticed that these aren't ordinary guitars. These things are 10 feet tall!

    you have to REALLY read into that to see anything remotely resembling the word "shit"

    Different perspectives, I guess, because that was the first thing I noticed when I looked at it. It may not say "shit", but it certainly resembles it.....

    This looks very cool. I love that it's in the same vein but different from the usual striping. I bet there are probably some little hidden things on there that the buyer would have a good time finding over time.

    The RRHOF has been auctioning guitars like these for charity for a few years. Last time I was there they had a bunch of them out front and in the lobby. I think they're pretty cool, but I just don't have the room for one in my foyer.

    Default "About the Artist" Bio

    I don't mean to be picky here, but I wonder who OK'D the bio. Notice specific mention of Dave and nothing about Sammy. You know, when you read small bios like this on VH, you typically see where both guys are named (and every once in a great while Gary - sorry VH III Brigade).

    Don't mean to look to deep into something, but does that strike anyone else odd here? They even mentioned the 2004 tour (yeah, I know it was about Wolfie, not about "the tour").

    Just curious. Probably means nothing.

    Hey RRHOF - Notice the quote :"Eddie Van Halen is considered among the greatest rock and roll guitarists of all time."?

    I guess not.

    Could it be that we are seeing the future with Wolfies design? We've been used to seeing Eddie's (The Stripes), so will we see Wolfie come out with something like this?-Red43j
    Eddie must think I'm a BOZO to want to drop THAT much on one of his new Charvel Guitars!

    They're going to be setting these up all over town this weekend, and unveiling all the ten foot guitars on Monday. I'll try to head up to where the EVH guitar is going to be some time next week and get some live pictures.
    Nothing to see here.

    By the looks of that guitar, I think Wolfie has been sneaking some drinks off of Ed's wine...
