    Default NY Post Mention

    Ed got a mention in NY Post today for one of his guitar patents

    * Eddie Van Halen. The star guitarist got Patent No. 4,656,917 in mid 1980s for a "musical instrument support," which allows would-be guitar gods to hold their instruments horizontally, like a serving tray.

    Title: Musical instrument support
    Document Type and Number: United States Patent 4656917
    Abstract:
    A supporting device for stringed musical instruments, for example, guitars, banjos, mandolins and the like, is disclosed. The supporting device is constructed and arranged for supporting the musical instrument on the player to permit total freedom of the player's hands to play the instrument in a completely new way, thus allowing the player to create new techniques and sounds previously unknown to any player. The device, when in its operational position, has a plate which rests upon the player's leg leaving both hands free to explore the musical instrument as never before. Because the musical instrument is arranged perpendicular to the player's body, the player has maximum visibility of the instrument's entire playing surface.
    "Watch what people are cynical about, and one can often discover what they lack. -- Gen. George S. Patton

    There was a thread about this tray last week, too.

    Here's a poster I have hanging on my wall that'll give a better look at it. It's a cool shot.
