    Default OLD SCHOOL - EVH guitar from 1986 Sears Christmas catalog

    This was my first guitar, got it for Christmas in 1987 from the Sears Christmas catalog when I was a freshman in high school. After about 2 years of playing it, I graduated to a Charvel strat and passed this along to a friend, who passed it along to a friend - and it just now came back to me!

    Amazingly, the pickup is really good sounding and it plays really well for a small scale guitar.

    Here's the guitar now, and here's me playing it in 1987, and the catalog it came from...

    I remember that advertisement. I had it circled and everything, but yet Santa didn't bring it to me. Still though, what a great memory. Thank you!

    I had that guitar too. It played like shit but was the closest I would get to an EVH guitar at the time. It's pretty cool that you still have it.

    I had one too. It was a white one with black stripes. Went to Napa to visit grandmother and walked by a guitar shop. Mom Couldnt resist my puppy dog eyes when I saw it.
