    Can anyone post a summary? Stupid firewall at work
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    "It's the fucking shit" or words to that effect. Same pitch we've seen on the
    new Wolf already, with lip service to Fender.

    Kinda shoots himself in the foot, in a way, in that he says when he started
    what he wanted from a guitar didn't exist and he made what he wanted for $130.
    And for my money, his tone was always better when he was building his
    shit himself. Not that I've actually heard him play his new pet yet.

    He looked happy & healthy & sober.

    He talked about his love of tinkering with things and creating.

    He discussed the new guitar and made some jokes and analogies about watches.

    He talked about designing a watch that has two faces, one that gives the real time and the other that gives the time Eddie will arrive...

    Really could not listen to all of it but it really did not have any specifics. Looks to be recorded towards the end of the speech.

    Said he is happy for the dealers support and for them backing the EVH product. Says he has made guitars with other companies but is the happiest with Fender. Made a joke which people laughed but somebody came by during that time so I could not replay it. Trying to push the envelope with EVH products. Informercial but then again its NAMM not a VH Links convention.

    I will say he came off better than when he came out with the Frankenstrat a few years back. Seemed sober.

    You've heard it. He tested it on tour.

    He looks good, but all joking aside, he sounds awful. I can't see him going without a hole in his throat much longer. It's painful to listen to him. Otherwise, he's coherent and funny. He also tried his best not to bash the past companies, simply promoting Fender. Hopefully he'll do a demonstration.

    Sure doesn't look like it, not after watching that clip anyways. No one else has said that they saw/heard him play either. I find that odd that he won't, seeing how he seems all proud of his new "creation". You can't exactly hope to sell a product if you don't show the public what it's capable of, can you? Of course not.
