    Question for the regulars who hang out, so to speak, in the videos that JohnnyB./5150rob/Yaminub/Nesdall, etc. post.

    Just saw a blurb on the VHND page on FB. The talked about the anniversary of the 2 1/2 Men episode that Eddie was on. The Two Burritos and a Root Beer Float thing with the D2-H guitar.

    Anyway, one of the comments was from Chris Hubbard was said "Here's mine" and showd his replica of the guitar. I can only zoom so much on my phone but the bridge looked cool! Any idea how he tooled it or designed it? I've seen and subscribed to his YT channel, but don't recall seeing a clip of that before?

    Anyone?

    Chris' isn't functional, it's purely aesthetic. He just attached parts to a regular bridge to approximate the look of the D2H.

    However, this dude in Japan somehow got his hands on a functional one. Check it out.

    Thanks for the reply, Jedi!
    After seeing Chris moddify a Wolfgang to house a Trans Trem and seeing his other builds and gear, I thought he might've cracked the code for the D2-H. The cutout he did on the guitar almost reminded me of the old Reb Beach Voyager model from Ibanez. Remember those?

    Great video you posted! I immediately looked at the comments section and he said it was a oneoff custom build... Very cool! I'd bet a few of our alumni would like to see those schematics!

    Chris' is just a modified Schaller bridge, here's a close up



    My burritos just has a Floyd, but you bet the Shark will get a D2H if we can ever get them.

    That's neat to see a closeup like that.
    You (or someone else, as I'm not a builder) should send a message to the guy in the video Jedi posted. I wonder if he'd be willing to explain how he did it?

    Pretty sweet to see a functioning unit, other than Ed's, in action.

    Ha ha. I was digging through one of my storage bins looking for something the other day and I came across the first issue of Guitar Shop with the 5150 and EBMM on the cover.

    That issue was responsible for me dropping a bunch of money on my EBMM. It was like, "Wow. You can buy those!"
    I don't always listen to hard rock, but when I do, I prefer Van Halen. Stay Frosty my friends.

    Yeah, that premier issue was quite a way to roll out the publication! It was great to read about and see Eddie's new gear at the time!

    I loved the shot of him and his amber EBMM on the GFTPM cover. The one with the Poundcake transcription.

    I'm looking for a set of black Wolfgang pickups, or something similar, has to be double black. Will trade a set of zebra wolfs.

    Holy Shit... I haven't seen that before. That was awesome to see how it works...
    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
