    Default $100,000 Charvel VH Logo Guitar?

    Sorry if this has already been posted. Interesting guitar, but to me, the write up just smacks of hyperbole.

    Even if that description is 100% true, there's nothing remarkable enough about the guitar to justify that price. Who in his/her right mind would by that for even a fraction of the price? If Ed got wind of it he'd probably have his legal squad slap an injunction on the owner and bar him/her from playing it in public anyway...

    No kidding. This guy should be writing spy novels or James Bond movies.

    Some people have made offers for this thing but I'm not sure what the appeal is. It's a broken, F'd up prototype guitar that was rejected by Eddie Van Halen almost as soon as he was given the original.

    Looks like a POS. I wouldn't pay 100 cents for it.

    Seriously though, that guitar = poop.

    Even someone asked the question, "100,000 for something cracked and glued?"

    I can't get over the fact that it has been played a lot to be worn like it is. Who has been playing that thing so much?

    I saw one like that a few months back in much better condition and the guy wanted like 7500.00 for it. It was in a display case and signed by Michael Anthony. Way better shape than that broken piece of shit.
    I used to jog but the ice cubes kept falling out of my glass.

    my favourite part of the story is the earthquake that happened in either 1982 or 1983 that caused the damage to the body...i'm guessing that earthquake was this dude moving out of his girlfriends apartment into the band's practice space when she kicked him out for not getting a real job. He piled up all his belongings into his broken down IROC-Z and as he cruised down the freeway fumbling for his VH mix tape, BAM, hit a pothole, the guitar banged against the T-Top and broke apart...
