    Isn't that the guitar Michael Gonzales won back in 85?
    Article about it in the inside VH magazine. I'll dig it out sometime and check. It could be another Kramer but I thought that was the one he won and got from Ed personally.

    Default Hey Jimi....

    I was on halen.com the other day and noticed something that I had not heard. If its true I don't know how the heck I missed it as the 5150 is my fav VH axe of all time and I always pay attention to threads with it.
    Jimi you should be able to answer this. I read that Ed gave the Kramer 5150 to chip Ellis a while back. I knew he had the weird shapes / rude guitar but never heard anything about Ed giving 5150 to him too. Any truth to this?
    Thanks

    I heard this a few weeks back and bought it up again in a post there the other day.

    Obviously, it could of happened, but I doubt Ed would give that guitar away... He's not stupid... He would know what that guitar is worth and I'm sure it means a lot to him. If he was going to give it to anybody, you would think that Wolfgang would get it like he got the 1984 Kramer...

    Like I said, It could be true, but I doubt it...

    I spoke to a reputable source today and it seems as though its most like true that Chip does in fact have the 5150. Of course there is really no 100% confirmation but maybe we will get some info going forward. I agree that Wolf should have been to one to have it. It goes hand in hand with the Kramer 84.

    but we all know how unorthadox Edward can be.

    Update on the 5150 guitar location....I will not say how I talked to him....let's just say I got my information straight from the horses mouth....the guitar that Chip has is a backup to the 5150 guitar.....from the info that I got....when evh striped the 5150 Kramer....there were several bodies striped up in the same exact stripe configuration....but evh still has the original....on a side note....the holy grail 5150 guitar pictures that were on the Internet...with the striped neck...was in fact the original....and the person that I talked to has that mystery striped neck that was on the original 5150!

    Jeremy,

    thanks for posting this bro. I thought it seemed a little odd that Ed gave away the 5150 in the first place. Glad its still at 5150. Cool though he has the original neck in the striped pattern too...... I love that 7th tuning peg after the break.

    thanks for the official info dude,

    Rob

    I always thought that striped neck was a photoshop jobbie.... I was never really convinced that the 5150 in that picture was the real thing either... It looks like its in a guitar shop (the original photo)... Why would the real 5150 be in a guitar shop???? Surely Ed's got people to come to him if he needed work done on it. I couldn't imagine Eddie walking into a shop and saying " I need a service & set up for my guitar"... "Can you put 9's on it".

    I was never really sure of the orgin of those grail pics. The guys on halen.com would probably know. They certainly looked legit to me when I first saw them a couple years ago though.

    As stated, Ed does strange things. Just like the rest of us. But I do know Mr. Van Halen will go to a store. Around the time of his porn soundtrack thing he was at Guitar Center in Sherman Oaks I think. I have a close relative who worked there at the time. Long story short, he was at the counter with strings and pedals. No one offered to help him quick enough. He got a bit upset. No one recognized him. Guess he felt he had to ask if they knew who he was. So I could see him going somewhere he liked. Friedman amps jumps out at me. Bringing any guitar us a possibility.

    Remember, he was looking rough then and had duct tape holding his boots together. I feel bad even telling this story. I cleaned it up a bit. It's great to see him today rockin' out!
