    Default EVH Guitar I don't recognize

    I saw a photo that a friend posted on facebook from Amsterdam with a guitar display. I don't recognize the guitar. And I don't know where it was taken.

    Does anybody know this guitar?


    Working on the image....give me a minute.
    It's a kramer with 918 V in tape instead of 5150 or something like that.

    Jimi,

    I have always wondered, what is the blueish star on the 918V Kramer? Is that paint or tape?

    any ideas? I have always toyed about making a replica of this axe. Scott has one and always meant to ask him this question.

    I think it is just the blue Spacetape stuff. I used to have a manufacturer of decals in my neighborhood, and they use to toss tons of the "Spacetape" or holographic offcut stuff in the garbage bin. Never saw any of the red. (Believe me I always kept checking!) but I had tons of the blue. I did an Eddie style Pacer in blue stripes instead of red, and cut out the 5150 lettering in that stuff. Looked cool. One of the guitars that got nicked years ago though. Always thought I might see it in a pawnshop someday, but never did. Bastards!

    It's just a sticker, like the kind you can get in craft stores. It's not spacetape, though.

    Alright, cool.

    Wasn't sure.

    And he had it with a bunch of pictures from a trip to Amsterdam, so I thought it was a guitar there.

    I had just seen this somewhere posted by someone who took a pic from the Hard Rock. I am not really familiar with this guitar or what Ed did recording or touring wise with it. The best pics of his guitars are on that Vintage Kramer site as they have just about every guitar he touched.

    anyone have any idea what 918V stands for, if anything?
    Any musicians near Boston / Cape Cod want to get together and play some VH? I play drums, guitar, keyboard, bass, and I sing. I want to start a VH tribute band. Contact me if interested.
