    Default Got some spare cash? Buy Eddie's old Kramer Pacer

    From http://www.rig-talk.com/forum/viewto...p?f=6&t=112709
    Thought it'd be fun to share... [NOTE: NOT MY GUITAR / mk5]

    Original 1982 EVH Frankenstrat that belonged to and was played extensively on tour by Edward Van Halen during the Diver Down era and used in the studio as one of the main guitars on the landmark recording of the Van Halen album 1984.

    My shop, King Guitar Ltd has been asked to help broker a very important guitar from a private collection. It is not for the faint of pocket book but if you have the dough there is not many cooler collectable guitars out there.

    CALL ME IF INTERESTED LOW SIX FIGURES.











    I realize this is a very specialized piece but we do have members here who could write this check without much of a thought.

    Please if interested Call, PM me here or email to brad@kingguitar.com.

    This guitar was owned and played by Eddie Van Halen and has recently been featured in an exclusive book containing 150 of world’s most famous and priceless musical instruments.

    This guitar is from a private collection and has been hidden away for 25 years. It has never been publicized for sale or auction before or featured in any form of media publication until this year’s release of The Guitar Collection Book (see below).

    Attached are pictures from the book.



    EDWARD VAN HALENs 1982 KRAMER FRANKENSTRAT

    The Eddie Van Halen 1982 Kramer Frankenstrat is a one of a kind, extraordinary collectible guitar owned and played by Edward Van Halen during some of the most remarkable years of his career. The guitar was signed by Eddie on the head stock in 1984 during rehearsals for the “1984” tour at Zoetrope Studios and in its original condition from when it was built in 1982 by master guitar builder Paul Unkert and has been stored in its case for 25 years.

    This guitar was used as one of Van Halen’s main touring guitars (Diver Down Tour 1982-1983) as well as one of the studio guitars for Van Halen’s most successful album “1984” which included song titles “Jump”, “Panama”, “I’ll Wait” and “Hot for Teacher”. The “1984” release is also the bands last studio album with all the original members.

    The guitar is accompanied by a written letter from Rudy Leiren, a 10 year Van Halen guitar tech and longtime friend to Eddie verifying its authenticity and history with Eddie. Also included is a written letter and video from the original guitar builder Paul Unkert verifying every detail of its original condition from when it was built in 1982. (Paul Unkert is a master guitar builder in charge of building all artist guitars for Eddie Van Halen during the 1982 relationship between Eddie and Kramer guitars). Note: It is very unusual for Eddie to part with a guitar once he had ever used it for either live performance or recording and that he signed it is also extremely rare.

    Recently featured in The Guitar Collection Book which contains 150 of the world’s most rare and famous musical instruments. http://www.theguitarcollectionbook.com . See the trailer here:



    The Guitar Collection Book features the most significant, coveted and priceless guitars from the most exclusive public and private collections around the world. This book contains the world’s best known guitars assembled by the nation’s foremost guitar experts featuring instruments from Jimi Hendrix, Eddie Van Halen, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimi Page, Buddy Holly, Elvis Presley, John Lennon, Keith Richards, Eric Clapton, Paul McCartney, BB King, Chuck Berry and many more.

    There are few guitarists in the world to rival the caliber of Eddie Van Halen’s talent and his contribution to music and pop culture. The 1982 Kramer Frankenstrat is an exceptionally important guitar, it has been properly stored for nearly 25 years and is now available for the serious collector who is ready to own a one of a kind piece of musical history.

    WOW...

    I got an idea. I will write you a check, mail it to you and you send me the guitar. After I get the guitar, then deposit the check...

    Did Eddie quit smoking while he used this guitar. No burns on headstock.

    Killer guitar I'd love to own! But for 6 figures....that's just insanity really. However, if the real franky went to auction it would fetch over a million.

    Just making sure everyone knows I'm not the seller or broker again! What else I think is wild is that it still has EVH's finger sweat/gunk all over the neck. Talk about some
    serious MOJO! Can't believe someone is selling this thing...

    Here's the letter that was posted from Rudy Leiren, EVH's old tech, explaining the change in ownership:
