    Default Guitar Aficionado EVH Picture

    Ed's dog just posted this to his (her?) Facebook page.


    Can't believe I just said that.



    Had to do a double take because I originally thought this pic was from the 80's-early 90's. Ed looks bloody fantastic. Never ceases to amaze me how he's changed in the 7-8 years since his troubles. This is the Ed that we should have had post-Cherone.

    Mods, I wasn't sure if this should be in the Random Shit Thread or not so apologies in advance if I shouldn't have opened a new thread for this.

    Great pic! Fellow guitarists, is that the Franky Replica? Looks like it.

    Certain stripes match up with the original Frankie, but don't match up with the Frankie II replica he used during the ADKOT tour last year, when it had a Wolfie neck on it.

    Here's the page of the thread I'm referring to.

    I'm not nearly qualified to make a statement, IMHO that looks like the original Frankie (yes I changed my mind )

    There's no way anyone can nail down if that's the real Frankie or not. Those days are over. The saturation of spot on accurate replicas ruined the uniqueness of it. Personally I highly doubt that's THE Frankie.

    There is another photo of Ed with that guitar from this photo shoot standing on a rock in the sea with the water splashing up a bit. I doubt he would of use the real Franky in that situation, but I guess you never know with Ed. I dont think he values that guitars as much as we all do...

    I'd bet he has a few of the replicas in his possession...

    That is a great photo. Looking forward to buying the magazine this for.
    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

    Nice to see him looking in better shape. I was worried when he put on all that weight (probably because of the medical issue he had last year).

    I remember reading an article in the 80s where the interviewer described Eddie tossing a few of his guitars in the back of his truck without cases...like really TOSSING them. I was dumbfounded.

    I too was dumbfounded when I read that. But as I reflected more on it, it made me realize that we take Ed far more seriously than he does. I have certain respect for people who are famous but don't view themselves necessarily as all that special in the big scheme of things.

    I had the money for 1,000 more Wolfgangs, I might toss mine around a little. I think of mine as a family heirloom. But to Ed they are just tools.
