    Will be very cool if Ed plays this guitar for Unchained on next tour. I guess Unchained will have to be the last song of the show.

    Very cool that the sexy “Circles” model is finally made available!

    There were no really good quality images of Eddie playing that guitar online, so I just now uploaded some really good images taken by Neil Zlozower in 1981 and put them on VHND here:

    I love the unchained guitar. I can't believe it released this one. I hope the Shark one is the next one.

    The guitar looks great (as all of the 'striped' ones do) , and I can totally imagine buying one . It's not quite as well known as Ed's other axes and that's part of the charm IMO .

    Is it against the rules to suggest that I'd want to add a single coil spaced humbucker in the neck position ? I played a LOT of gigs and such with a single humbucker equipped Charvel . Eddie obviously made his name with a similar setup , yet I personally prefer the sound of a 2 pickup guitar .

    I'd love one, if it was priced right. At the absolute MOST, it should be $699 USD. But $1200??? Oh well, hope people enjoy it.

    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

    Looks awesome. This may be a dumb question, but I instantly went ooooo the Unchained guitar, but why does everyone know it as that? Was it only used on that song because of the Drop D? then he switched back to a standard tuned guitar?

    I would say because of the Oakland Unchained video.


    I've never referred to it as the circles guitar or crop circles guitar. Always Unchained because of the video. If not for the video and all we ever had were old photos I would never have connected it to Unchained.

    Why is it that in the Oakland videos, Ed plays Hear About it Later on the Franky, but plays Unchained on the Unchained guitar? They're both drop D. Why not just use the Franky on Unchained if it's already tuned to drop D for HAIL?

    Actually, if you watch the Unchained Oakland video there is a spot where he is playing the Frankie ... spliced footage from a previous night I guess. Look closely around the 2:23 to 2:26 mark ... right after Mike is pounding the bass with his fist and before the hawt chick, Eddie pirouettes and he's playing the Frankenstein.

    I've always wondered the same thing. I've watched closely before to see if Ed plays HAIL while avoiding the Drop D somehow. There is the one part at the start of the solo where on the studio version he hits the Drop D a few times before he starts the tapping and meat of the solo. In Oakland he does some descending bends on the 3rd string where that Drop D part would be.
