    Default Ed & Wolf's 2012 Live rig roundown

    I'm not sure if this has been posted here before, but this is cool....

    Interestingly, there is a close up of the "D2H' bridge, which apparently does drop down 2 & a half steps or more....
    If you have nothing nice to say about Eddie Van Halen, you're at the right website. - Me (A few years ago)

    "People take Van Halen much more seriously than we do" - David Lee Roth (1980's)

    "I don't sit on the end of your bed while you're trying to make a living" - David Lee Roth (1988)

    "For some reason people love to complain about everything. The internet has made it easy for people to do that. Shut the fuck up and get a life, or show me how good you can do it."- Edward Van Halen

    "A lot of people ask me which Van Halen singer was better. You can't compare them. It's like asking which guitarist is better. Nobody is better than anybody. Every player is their own person."-Edward Van Halen

    "I do like Eddie Van Halen as a player. He gets it right quite often." -Paul McCartney

    I thought this was strange.

    "
    Eddie played this graphite-colored Wolfgang Stealth equipped with an ebony fretboard, a titanium D-Tuna, and a large red kill switch for most of the show. The tape surrounding the bridge pickup is to prevent the high E string from catching under the pickup."

    I thought it was weird too, then I rememberd he regularly drops his bar all the way down and fucks with all his strings when doing Cathedral, and his pickup is quite high so it can easily catch under there when the strings are so slack, then they suddenly go back upto tension, it's under the pickup and the string snaps

    It's not the first time Ed's pickup has been taped to avoid the E string catching on it. I saw that on at least one of his Peavey Wolfgangs. That may have been the neck pickup, though.

    Ed's entire Floyd on his Stealth guitar is titanium. It's possible they meant to say the bridge itself was titanium (and not just the D-Tuna). Or maybe he's actually got a damn titanium D-Tuna.

    The Floyd on his Stealth is titanium - not just the dtuna.

    My bad, the back of that Floyd looks like titanium and I assumed the rest of it would be the same.

    It seems like the tape is more on the body than on the pickup. Not sure how that works.
