    Default Ed's Charvels

    Hey, guys.

    Just a quick question. Why is Ed playing Charvels for certain songs if he has a deal with Peavey? I've been curious about this one.

    The Charvels get auctioned off at the end of the tour ... I don't remember where the money goes.

    I think last go round Eddie striped them himself, not sure if that's true again this time or not.

    P.S. Ed's currently working with Fender to produce the new Wofgang's (not Peavey)

    Ed's deal with Peavy has been over since 2004. He's now with Fender who manufactures EVH gear and owns Jackson/Charvel.

    Sorry, replace Peavey with Fender. I did mean to use the term Fender but I often say Peavey because it's the Peavey version of his guitar that I own. Common mistake.

    I was just wondering if this is breaking some kind of deal with Fender.

    Let the abuse come. I can take it. I thought it was a legitimate question.

    Charvel is actually owned by Fender...As for the terms of the EVH/Fender agreement as to what guitars he can and can't play, I'm assuming Fenders are fine.. other than that, who knows?

    I believe the guitars are being auctioned for some organization benefiting Africa I believe the story was on vhnd in late December
    Janie Liszewski did the IMPOSSIBLE she helped Eddie Van Halen get better. Deal with it.

    It was a good question and I'm sure plenty of people wondered the same thing. No need to get abused. It's not like you're just noticing Ed, Al, and Dave weren't at the hall of fame induction.

    I think that answers the question right there. Thanks.

    When the EVH Stealth was introduced I went to my local guitar shop where I bought my 2009 EVH Wolf and asked when the Stealth would arrive. They told me the FENDER Rep had told them they had to order 3 Charvels for every Wolfgang they wanted. They where (are) kinda pissed off about the whole situation considering their walls are covered with Fender and Charvel guitars.
    They did not know if this came from the Fender , Charvel or the EVH people but they told me there would be no more Wolfgangs and no more American made Charvels coming into the store unless things changed. They did not feel it was right to force them to buy Charvels just to get the EVH models !!!
    They even went to NAMM and tried to negotiate around the deal and where told they had to deal with their Fender rep only because of the State (Texas) they are in.
