    I think you might be tripping on some fermented spores, that guitar is his #1 B&W Frankie. You might have been drugged! You're hallucinating!

    Only kidding. I'll look around, but I've seen an old boot with Ed playing this guitar. I'll poke around when I have a minute.

    Isn't that the Unchained guitar? Or is the the See Ya guitar? I get those two confused all the time.

    It is indeed the Unchained guitar.

    Oh no, not this again! The confusion actually originates from the "Vintage Kramer" site who has erroneously identified the "EVH Rude" as the "See Ya" guitar!

    Let me try and clear this up once and for all!:

    There are two black and white guitars that Ed used on the 1981 "Fair Warning" tour:
    The "Unchained"...


    ...and the "EVH Rude"

    They obviously cannot be visually confused for one another since they both have very distinct patterns.

    The fact is that it's the "Unchained" guitar that has the words "BYE SEE YA LATER" hand-written on the back of it!

    The "EVH RUDE"...

    ... has nothing written on the back!

    "Vintage Kramer" has had that listed wrong for years now!!!

    As a late follow-up, thanks to jimi11580 for not only coming up with detail, yet images to illustrate his points. Nicely done sir, and thank you.

    You're very welcome, chef! It's my pleasure to attempt to straighten out this timeless "brain teaser"!

    Sooooo, I'm all cornfused. Is the Rude guitar or is the Unchained guitar the one that was originally the unfinished guitar in the Pick Axe picture and then ended as the Rasta guitar? It seems it was always the "See Ya" guitar i.e. the Unchained guitar.
