    Default Who can tell me about this EvH guitar?

    I can't remember where I found this pic, but I believe it was taken in 1982.

    Natta. Never saw that before. Cant even tell what it is. My guess is one of those "gifts" since its got a unfavorable rosewood neck.
    Ironic thing though. The Barbarian would be his governer someday.

    looks like an early kramer voyager to me. although, slightly modified. i thought they came with V/T knobs with jack on the face. could have been custom for ed though..

    gotta be 82, because thats when conan came out. also, that looks like a kramer lawsuit strat head, which would have been 81-81

    Are you sure it's not that odd voyager hybrid, repainted with the neck and tail-piece replaced?

    Really?
    I never heard that story.

    Based on the hair, clothing and bandana in this pic, I'd say this was taken sometime around 1984 ...



    After seeing this pic, I always just assumed his "Star Guitar" was disassembled and forgotten.

    I agree, I don't think it's the same guitar.
    I'd say the pic from '82 is most likely a Voyager, but I honestly don't know for sure.

    ya dino, i agree, that pic with the dis-assembled star looks 84ish. as far as it being stolen, i dunno. thats just what i recently heard. but, that could be totally false. came from a good source, but that doesnt always mean anything. that guitar could very well be in the attic at 5150.... but then again, there are virtually no pics of it after, well, apparently 84. haha

    The Hybrid Star guitar was a Charvel body with a Danelectro neck.
    Charvel cut the body and named it the "Star" after Ed, who at the time was an up and coming "star". At least that's the story I heard.

    If you look closely, I think you'll see the contour where the body meets the neck on the top is more rounded than the Charvel. At least that's what it looks like to me. I'll have to dig through some Voyager pics to make the comparison.

    I see now what you are saying. I was taking it for granted that the paint-job was distorting my interpretation of the angles. Yup-old eyes.

    So apparently that rules out the possible "evolution" of this curious guitar being as follows...

    1.Discovery

    2. First modification

    3. Next mod, losing interest...

    4. Ehh...

    5. Adios, Sayonara...
